Herpa 1:87 scale Mazda MX-5 Miata

Reviewed by: Richard Dekker - rdekker@telusplanet.net

A HO (1:87) scale model of the Mazda MX-5 Miata. Colours available are Classic Red, Mariner Blue, Silver Stone metallic, Saphire Blue metallic (1996 M Edition), and Sunburst Yellow.

Excellent examples of the smallest Miata on the planet. I collected Herpa models a long time ago and am glad to have found that they are making the Miata. Detail is incredible, rubber tires, good examples of the 1990-93 wheels, all lights are either painted, plated, or are clear red plastic.

The red, both blues, and the silver are cheapest. The yellow is in Herpa's Private Collection series and comes in a display case for a whole lot more money. All versions except the yellow require the assembly of the side mirrors - no glue required though.
