I'm looking for any cheap model with angel eyes/halos. By angel eyes, I mean like the ones you find in some BMWs and the current generation Dodge Challenger, like this:

IF there are no 1/18 models currently that have these types of lights, how could I make a headlight that looks like this, but doesn't light up?

You could try looking for suitable metal washers.
Most would be too thick and with too little centre opening, but not all.
It's going to be difficult to find - but that's part of the fun of modifications......
I've had to search very hard (and with no luck where actual in stock items are concerned) to find 1/12th scale p/e seat belt buckles and fabric.
I have to wait until June before stock arrives, so my project is on hold.

Thanks for the advice! To provide more context, I'm trying to do a project involving the 2015 Dodge Challenger, with halo-style lights front and back, but nobody currently makes a detailed one in 1/18 scale:

If anybody with a 1/18 Ertl, Greenlight, or HW61 Challenger could measure the diameter of the headlights, that would be really helpful.
