Default Good Mazda Miata model? Ie Auto Art

Does anybody know where I can find a good Mazda Miata model (91 BRG) that has better or equal quality as Auto Art. Auto Art has a ton of Mazdas but no NA versions wich sucks.

Only 1:18 scale that I recall is by a company called "Gate", but it's discontinued now I believe. Got one myself (Mariner blue NA) from ebay, which may be your best bet, but they're few and far between in my experience of looking. Decent quality model, though not up to the levels of AutoArt or Minichamps. Good enough model if you can find one though

I thought Tamiya made a readily available NA? Or is that not good enough quality?

My local Mazda has a really sweet model on display of a 91 brg.
You could maybe call and ask them about it if they even know. They also have a sweet fd rx7 model next to it.

It's north town Mazda in Richardson Texas.

Gates is/was part of AutoArt i believe....,Had a heap them a few years ago here in NZ,Bought them at local Store chain when they were half price(Bought about 10) and sold them all for double !!,Quailty was real nice and they were even RHD,Should have kept one for myself,
Our local auction site,Trade Me,Like your E bay,They show up every now and then,usual sell double what i sold them for.
There was a good colour selection.
BRG/Tan interior
RED/Black interior
Silver/Black interior
Blue/Tan intertior...That one seemed a bit odd to me,Looked OK though
They were 1600 NA models
