    Hi everyone, I'm from Switzerland living in Mauritius at the moment. I started to build a 1/18 car from scratch by using the same materials or the nearest one to the real thing, also trying to incorporate most of the real details and functions. For now i made the rims and suspensions, working on making a mold to create rubber tires and a steel chassis. Just found this forum I'm sure its going to be good for my inspiration

    The scale 1:18 will not be an easy one for your project. Good luck!
