KARR 1/43 pictures added to the HW Elite Page

There are now pictures added to the 1/43 Hot Wheels Elite homepage.

Seems that on this sized modell nothing has been changed regarding the balloon tires. Hopefully the 1/18 will have different ones.

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

Update to the Super Elite KITT?

Have just found following new model on the Hot Wheels Elite website:
http://www.hotwheels-elite.com/model-ca ... ousand.php

Is this the Super Elite one which comes out 2014? I am just wondering about the number of limited production = 2000 instead of only 1000 pcs

Re: Modding the Hotwheels 1:18 KITT

Good work! I have also thought about removing the black frame of the trunk hatch and to slim the metal frame. You say it won't be possible to seperate the plastic from the frame - can you post any picture to show how both are fixed together? Do you have any positive effect on the new scanner positio...

Re: Hot Wheels Super Elite Kitt/Possible Karr

Why don't you just apply an cover where these lines had been cutted out. Hence you only require one single LED and have optically a 3 lines voice box!?! Hmm... But at 1/18 scale, those would be extremely tiny lines to be cut out to form the 3 lines in the voice box... To cut out those lines would h...

Re: Hot Wheels Elite modifications

Here are my first modification on the Hot Wheels elite model: In my opinion the tow bar belongs to KITT and I decided to make one, because it is also shown at KITT in the Intro of Knight Rider. Furthermore now it even covers the ugly squarebox underneeth the model. This is just the prototype and I w...

Re: Hot Wheels Elite modifications

@andy
Nice work - looks much more realistic.
Have you also seen any option to push up the red scanner plastic element more up to the bonnet, to let the upper edge of the scanner disapear or is it glued?

Re: Hot Wheels Elite modifications

Thanks for these helpfull pictures!
When you got your modell stripped, can you also post some pictures of the other parts inside - like the Scanner LED or foglight grills?

It needs a little vertically push, but smoothly. Either it locks or you feel that it won't work. Unfortunately I do not have any comparison to see if all models responds the same

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

When you push the seat down on top of the back rest, they should be easily locked. Pushing only the seat won't work at mine.

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

My ejector seats are perfect, comparing to my other problems with the paintshop. But I also think the ejector seats are unnecessary - more important would be to lean the seats more back for the 2m driver this is definately no chilling-cruising position for this car. Is it just my opinion, that the i...

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

I agree with you and thank you for your words. I am a perfectionist and extremly fastidious but the point is, that the price already increased about EUR 20,- at ratailers in the loacal market and even on ebay. So now I know what I got for this price instead of paying more EURO for the next supprise....

Re: Got my Hotwheels Elite KITT!

That's a shame. Can you take or send it back for exchange? Mine has a couple of small very small irritations - the T-Tops don't quite sit flush, the tail light has the same problem and the foglight grilles are bent up also. I ordered it from overseas to make a saving though, so returning it would b...

Re: Sneak Peek of New Hot Wheels 1/18 KITT!!

Yes, recognized the fog lights in front. Looks great! Wondering how the taillights Look like, because most of the Ertl modification on this part looks awful.
But what I am really afraid of is that by producing only 1.000 pcs, I can hardly get one here in Germany!?

you may/ may not not see it in the pic, but the front nose was re sculpted, adding more of a radius to the front, as well as the fog lights/ opened grilles, and the lens covers details were re sculpted like the season 3 style, and the dashboard has the raised detail on it- correct to season one int...
