Yes thanks, I have seen diecast RC's in 1:32 but they are smaller than I like. 1:12 is the size I was referencing and I have searched for unsuccessfully... If you ever see that size I would like to know.

If I find one in 1:12 scale, you'll be the second one to know.

Those are cool. Wonder what the missus would say if I hung one of those on the tree?

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

The number 1 plate isn't bostrom. I think it is supposed to be Nicky Hayden, but he moved up to motogp in 2003 after winning the ama title in 2002. Bostrom won the ama championship in 1998 on a RC45.
