Mp4/4 Bodywork rivets/fast release?

Postby cmr1991 » Sat Feb 02, 2019 4:15 pm

Hi Folks,

I am bored of removing the screws all the time to show off the engine on the Mp4/4
Is there a fast release/rivet/pin type thing that I can use instead? has anyone found something suitable?

I'm using magnets on my H2R kit to replace the screws. These are neothingumy magnets, 2mm dia, that I got off eBay.
Here's a link to the post on the subject. Quite simple to do. Just magnets superglued into the screw holes, and, if necessary, filled on the outside.

I imagine that each model will have its own peculiarities.

Have to agree on the screws, clips or magnets would be far better. Need another issue two for a replacement right rear wing part :think:
