I kinda love/hate the wheels,I love the way they look and I hate how delicate they are in real life.Great job.

Looks good , looks like a realistic swap .

I'm surprised there aren't more scale engine swaps in mini's since they are becoming common in 1:1 , I've been trying to find a scale Toyota 4EFTE engine (starlet GT) as that's the common swap down here .

Glenn , whereabouts in Oz are you , last I was in Sydney Hobbyco (QVB in the city) had a couple of the Tamiya 1:12 mini's (around $100 though) , here's one I'm doing with a Suzuki GSX1100 engine front mounted , it's sitting at the back of the shelf at the moment while I do a couple of quicker projects but will be back on the bench soon . http://www.modelcars...00
