Default Classic Mini Bodyshells

So after last racing in 1993, I have just picked up a M05 Mini Cooper Monte Carlo. The shell is beautiful but will soon get bashed so i need a spare.

What options do i have (keeping to classic Mini) as Tamiya have discontuned them?

Thanks, Rick

Just start with one to try. The HK mini's are not looking well compared to the Tamiya.
Indeed a shame, that Tamiya discontinued them.

Or get the Monster Mini from Team Bluegroove in Canada. They look and handle great.

As discussed in the Mini Threads,
just the complete set is discontinued.
Single spare parts are still available.
So itīs only a more expensive thing than before...

Usually, in Mini my body lasts 1,5 seasons, so this is still acceptable.

Matthias

I recall that discussion being about the RX7, not the minis. Tamiya doesn't have any stock of the single parts of the mini either.

O.k. canīt see the stock of Tamiya Germany here. But Raman explained it also for the Alfa Body, not only the RX7.
And I have the same experience over the years with the VW Beetle body.
But for sure, itīs not valid for all Mini bodies (e.g. BMW Z3...).
