In this week’s products we test a breathalyser and an MX-5 makes our model of the week.
Bringing younger collectors into the world of classics with a car that has escaped all generational bias, the MotorMax MkI MX-5 is a budget and play-worthy model that is accurate enough to be a pleasing collector’s item too. Available in a couple of colours, the blue here being a coarse but very reflective metallic, individual lensed lights capture the design that made it to MOMA, and the interior is accurately cast, with clear gauges. Robust hinges ensure the opening doors, bonnet and boot will withstand inexperienced owners, and a steering front axle and detailed, albeit single-cast, single-colour engine bay matches the accurate underside. If you prefer the larger scale for your models, this is a bargain with a great balance of solidity and detail.
