      Hi all,
      I'm sure this'll seem odd as you know me as a rabid scratchbuilder, but I have a job to do for a friend who hasn't a LOT to spend. He has two 1/18th scale diecast models of Lotus Elans which I am to modify into modsports racers, exactly like his original race car. The models are for his grown up kids for Christmas.

      I did find a site that appeared to do the wheels and tyres, but lost the favourite when my computer flipped. I believe it was a German site.

      I'd appreciate any leads you could give me.

      Cheers,
      Martin

    Hello Martin,

    there are several sources for the BBS wheels in 1/18th scale around. Think you will need the cross spoked version for a classic Lotus Elan.
    Good to know which style and size is needed. But for first information got: Modellautoveredelung - or PS Modellcar-Styling - Home
    When there are any problems with translation, I'll be pleased to help you.

    Cheers
    Michael

    Gentlemen, many thanks, what a response!
    I have e-mailed PS Tuning as he does the wheels on a couple of his complete models and I've asked if he can sell them separately.
    I'm hoping he can also supply tyres as I need proper tyres not those rubber bands that the kiddies think cars run on!

    I'll get back when he does.

    Thanks guys. Any others would be great to try. I need the traditional wire mag type of criss-cross wheels. What BBS were always known for.

    Modellbau und Modellbauautos Onlineshop There are some of the BBS wheels replicated in 13. Will make fit some tires with higher profile. Tires won't be the problem as well, even different threads and makes are replicated. There is a bunch around for the 1/18 scale. Holy Lord, I wish to get some of this stuff in 1/8th. The 24th and 18th crowd are really saved in the aftermarket.

    Knock on our doors again.
    Cheers
    Michael

    Michael, many thanks. He had exactly what I want. We tried to order, but there is nowhere on his order page to detail payment. He has sent me two order confirmations. That is our fault as we tried twice, but we only need one order for two sets. If I send you the e-mails he sent us, could you translate for us, please??

    If you could send me your e-mail address I will forward the order e-mails.

    Many thanks,
    Martin
