hood pins

ty bigkid, i used my regular m18 pins and attached fishing line to them, connected the line to the front grill of the body so i don't loose them, and it looks like they are the real thing even though they are not scale size. i just haven't taken pics of that since i added the pins. i will try and get a pic of it soon.

john

Do you make more realistic looking lids for the RC18R?
If not, can MRS4 lids fit it (properly) ?
Maybe your 150mm subaru?
The wheelbase on the 18R is 154mm

But how about a quattro?

I'd buy an 18R just for that (or a scooby), right now I'm on the fence

here's the link the 959 dakar superimposed on the 18R. - http://www.one18th.com/forums/showth...ight=rendition

The quattro is another option on my list.

also is the rare ascona 400 rally
I'm thinking to get the realistic look on this one I would make it a 3-piece lexan body - main, and front and rear ends.

EDIT: OOPS! - dakar link added.

Bronco Lids - Rc18t Mlst

Fellas,

I have 3 Bronco lids I pulled the other day as I was doing some testing forming on some new molds.
I've notified a few of you that recently wanted one and have not heard back. SO now, it's first come first served.
Take them while I have them since I've got other projects on the go.
