Mazda's famous rotary engine sports car, the RX7 recreated in a 14-wide scale
About this creation
Mazda's famous rotary engined sports car, my model based off the third generation RX7 (preferably the RZ models). I remember starting this creation back in December of 2009 and through procrastination and laziness finished it in mid-January of 2010. The model features the run of the mill opening doors, hood, and flip up lights (though the transition isn't quite smooth). For the Interior I tried to keep a "stock" look as much as I could, though originally I wanted a stock engine bay as well, I ended up with trying to model a "tuned" 13B engine. For the most part though, everything else can be considered stock, except for probably the rims. The obvious errors you can see in the model are the proportions of course, the "cluttered" mess of the front and also the way-too short rear. Also the biggest problem haunting me being the design of the C-piller and the rear windshield, I had another design in mind but due to lack of pieces it wouldn't work out. I'm sure I can say much more on my design and introductory of my MOC, but due to my laziness I think I'll leave it at this >_<
As well, I'm sure most of you would look upon this MOC and be disappointment in it being stock, of course I've already planned out (actually done so) made a "tuned" version of this. Which it features a Mazdaspeed front bumper and sideskirts, run of the mill tuner spoiler, rear diffusers, and possibly some aftermarket hood. I could say it's done and I could post it very soon, but I still feel like pushing more improvements upon it so as of the date of posting this MOC, the "tuned" version isn't fully complete.
[I apologize if this page is a mess, first time using MOCpages and I find the system on how to edit and creations a pain, much appreciation it if people have any tips or pointers on how to work this thing, thanks! =P]
I really like this. It looks nearly accurate, and although you point out its faults, you've not bought a shedload of special bricks to make it, so kudos to you - it takes more skill that way. I think it also takes more skill to make a 'stock' car than a 'tuned' one, as you can hide all sorts of errors by 'tuning' a MOC. The features, although quite common, are nice too. Excellent work, 5 stars (but it's not perfect!) Keep it up.
