Interested in parting w/ one of your 2 Tamiya E30 M3 "shells"? If not, any hints on how to find one as I too have been looking for some time now...
The ONLY 1/18scale model of the E30 M3, is the Radio-Controlled Warsteiner/Schnitzer M3, made by
Tamiya. However, Tamiya no longer produces this kit- it has the hard-shell ABS plastic body, unlike the cheap Lexan cake cover bodies so commonly found in R/C.
It took me 2 years to locate an unbuilt kit of this car....but it was worth it. I finally found 3 kits in England. I sold the other kit for three times what it was worth. I kept the other two, because I race on the R/C circuit.
The "mini-me" version of my M3 actually steals more attention than my full sized 2.7 stroker!
1989 M3 2.7
Ok, I know this subject must have come up before so I'm sorry for bringing back up again. Does anyone know where I can get 1/18-scale models of BMWs. I know about Exoticar and Exoto model car companies. But they don't have any E30M3 models (which is what I'm really looking for). Also, does anybody have a list of official BMW models?
Any help in my effort is greatly appreciated.
