    Default Die Cast Models

    G'day All,
    Not too sure if anyone else is into this, but I' got a 1:43 scale die-cast replica of my MPS 3 last year - I collect model die cast cars, and was thrilled to see I could get a model of my car!
    Below are the link to the Biante web-site where I got mine from:
    A55982 - MAZDA 3 MPS - EU VERSION - CARBON GREY - Biante Model Cars
    A55981 - MAZDA 3 MPS - EU VERSION TRUE RED - Biante Model Cars
    They are the European versions, but still cool.
    Check them out!
    Ebay is also a good place to find Mazda models

    But that sort of symbolism the MPS quite well. In with all the muscle cars, the muscle cars are all like
    "awww look at the cute litt........."

    "ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM"

    "What the?!"

    I think it works well

    G'day Shakes!
    I did see a 6 model on Ebay last year, but it was only the normal sedan and wagon being offered.
    Was from somewhere in China...
    Do a search on Ebay!

    Default 3MPS Diecast Model

    A couple of us at my work bought these last year. A work colleague who does various modelling took them apart, converted them over to RHD and then painted them in something close to Aurora Blue, and put on my custom stripes. Hope the pic works.

    Nice job there Clarry!
    You should ask your mate if he would do custome jobs for people, my modelling skills don't extend that far unfortunately...

    Well he said he would but the down side is that the time factor involved in doing this kind of customization is huge so it would therefore be very expensive. So he just did ours for the fun of it and more or less for the challenge.
    Cheers, Clarry
