      I am looking to find a VR6 engine model, preferably a 12v VR6. Even better if it's on a stand.

      Like this one that was around the forums a while back:


      Anyone know where I can source one? Not looking for one that I have to build, but that would be an option too if nothing else pops.

      TIA

      Revell Germany makes a 1/18th scale Corrado. You could steal the engine from that.

      I found a total of 6 Volkswagen models on http://shop.revell.de/homepage/0/0/0/0/startseite.html,
      and none of them a Corrado...
      When I looked on eBay, all Revell there is are Bugs, Beetles and buses....

      IF I recall correctly it was a member here that had them cast or cast them himself outa resin. It was a two part cast that had to have all the pieces separated and then built.

      I tried sending him a message here, but haven't had a response yet...

      You have to keep an eye out on ebay since they have been discontinued.

      That ^. You just had to, didn't you.
      Price and PayPal please

      An enterprising member would source this out and then have it recast again. For what it's worth, I do casting.

      most of it was scratch built, its in my mk2 model right now. if i build another would you make resin copies of it? Beest i don't doubt your work. been to your site a few times, incredible work mate

      Something could be arranged. If you are serious lets move this to PMs.

      i will work on the prototype soon, just have another kit to finish first. do you guys want it with the airbox? or are we going the cone filter route. or do i leave that out completely so you guys can do your own thing?

    18. 11-12-2010 07:42 AM #19
      Both? Then it is builders choice. For me it is no big deal. Still have to build the molds and such. Just uses extra resin.

      Hi guys, its been a while since I've posted in here but I do check in and read the forums regularly. I have 2 resin VR's from Dave (Maximus Manx) from a few years ago that I never used. GTIDude are you scratch building the entire VR or using Dave's copies as a base? Just curious.

      I can post some photos of the ones I have tonight if you guys wanna see them. I resin cast myself, but I'm not sure I wanna tackle trying to make a workable clean master with the units I have. I'd have to think about that one as I have a bunch of other projects going at the moment.

      Anyone know where Dave (Maximus) pulled these copies from in order to maybe pull a clean/new mold? I will contact Dave via email for more info for you guys.

      Laterz, Mike

      Sorry for the delay. Here are the examples that I have -

      These are kinda rough and I do not believe they are made of traditional "resin." There is also some strange white paint on them that I'm sure could be removed (I received them this way). BUT I think they may be workable if someone wanted to put in the effort.
