I must see this! Pics, please (I don't see any) :D

I've been hoping for a styrene BMW 2002 in 1/24 or 1/25 scale for many a year now...

But, according to Wikipedia, these MiniZ cars are more like 1/27 scale... And not quite sure I understood, but are you making a RC out of it, or will you be building a static display model with full interior and/or engine detail, based off the RC car?

Like I said before, some pics would be great ;)

Thanks in advance, I'm very curious about this car...

The MiniZ have a scale of 1/27, but the chassis can easliy be used for bodies in 1/24.

The cars will be driven on my MiniZ racetrack and are no static models. They got no

inside details like cockpit and motor. I just use the body, modify the chassis wheelbase

to fit the body on it, which is quite often a challange.

My intention for those projects is that i will get detailed racecars. I have many 1/10

RC/cars, but those lexan bodies aren't very detailed. The original MiniZ bodies are great,

but those cars i love aren't available on the market. So i have to build my own.

pics added in the first post.... - sorry the link didn't work...

Great project!

Bandai did a 2002 turbo in 1/20 scale, a good kit except for the too skinny wheels and tyres - but the standard 1:1 suffered those too! I never finished mine as I modded the body to include the flared arches on my Alpina 1:1 and in the process of sanding the filler, snapped the roof pillars - and I could never found a set of wheels and tyres to do it justice so it stayed in the box! That was a long time ago but the kits are still around, if you google 'Bandai 2002 turbo'

My description image is of an xmod hummer, the mini z's cheaper cousin. Michael, have you ever considered of putting an old truck body on a mini z overland or xmod truck?

Anyway, I can't wait to see the finished product.

I can proudly present the miniZ version of Niki Lauda's BMW 2002 ti driven 1970 on the Nürburgring.
It's a MiniZ MR015 2.4 Ghz with a 1/24 resine body.
The car fits perfectly to my 1/24 rc-car collection of classic touring cars.
Hope you like it ;)
