Hey guys, I am trying to finds some 1:18 scale photoetched hood pins. I thought I'll find those fairly easy but no luck. I found some in 1:24 but not in 1:18. Any help where to look?

I used the 'C' type with the cables from Hobby Design for my AUTOart 787 B(got sick of the wires and yanked them all out)  A little fiddly as the PE pins are actually separate, but no big deal if you're familiar with the medium.   The Tremonia ones are quite fiddly but really 3d, if you need that type of lever-pin.

Thanks guys, I like those from Tremonia, I can't really see how Hobby design's look like. Tremonia's come in a kit and it's a bit expensive since I only need two pins but oh well

Yup just like that just fold up the tab and run the pin through. Very delicate but not that hard although in 1:18 it's a two pronged lock pin
