Hey Dippy, was that to me? If so then thanks. It is from Welly, it is the only model company selling the 1:18 Charger (new design in stock config) in the UAE. Also noticed that with the Welly models in 1:18 the front wheels can be detached easily, first I thought it had broken, but when I checked my Cayenne it had the same feature, also checked online and got the same feedback

Recently saw a new design Charger from Jada Toys Showroom Floor in stock config, also looks great but only available online. Have seen the 1969 Charger from Hot Wheels collector, but it is not stock, got new alloys and other mods, not too interested.

Have plans to pick up the Camaro, but not gone to the store yet. Got a Saleen S7 the other day, from Motor Max, pictures coming soon.

RPMPKDMFF: Are you thinking of a wheel swap for the charger? I have the same model. And I dont like the wheels. Can we pop the rear wheels out easily? I wanna try modding it.

Jada Toys Wheels are interchangable. You even get a sets of wheels specially designed for Jadas. Like these.

BEEM3R, I have the Welly model, only the front wheels pop off easily, not tried the rear yet, but am happy with the stock look. Might pick up a Jada Toys model though, just to open up a workshop (if you get my drift). Tweak it a little here and there.

The reason I don't indulge myself into the custom cars too much is that the audio setup and the extra is not really up to the mark on some models. Almost all customs have that chromed audio getup and two cylinders of NOS. I am trying to work out a way of swapping parts or getting new parts to actually customise the cars without having to add the NOS cylinders & anything not to my taste. Will keep all posted if I succeed.
