On the SCX Cordobas (60460 & 60720 to name 2) are the spotlamp pods easily removable? I like the cars, but I'd rather have them sans pods.

Do I need to keep specifically looking for the models that come without the pods, which seem to be a lot thinner on the ground? Or can I go for one with pods, and take them off?

I'm all for realism, but I'm trying to keep my rally car collection spotlamp-free, particularly as on the earlier cars (SCX & Scalextric Escorts, SCX Audi quattro, etc) they are so fragile.

TIA
Stuart.

I haven't ever tried to remove the light pod and don't have the car readily to hand to check how easy it is, but I have some reasonably detailed photos that may help you decide. It looks as if all that will be needed is a small bit of grinding to remove the pod.

Thanks for that Dopamine.
Those pics are a great help. It looks to me like the pod is fitted into the bonnet vent.

I'll keep looking for a 60750, ideally, or a 60450. But if either 60230, 60460, 60630 or 60720 comes my way for the right money, I'll see what I can do with it.

I think the SCX rally cars with working light pods are comming classic (if the pod is kept workig), so I'd keep it and look around for one without the lighted pod.

Just my opionon though

FZS, I agree on the Cordoba liveries but I'm not too sure about the other Seats, myself. That Telefonica is one that always eluded me. I always like the way the Cordoba ran, too.
