Designed for 1:8 scale models, but also suitable for other large-scale models such as the 1:6 Hot Toys and Blitzway models.

Common uses:

Build the DeLorean Time Machine by Eaglemoss

Build the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Hero Collector
1 x Black pack recommended – Stage 51, plus general and engine compartment detailing. View build planner

Hot Toys DeLorean Time Machine
4 x White packs and 1 x Black packs recommended – General interior and exterior detailing.

Hero Collector U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D
2 x Black packs recommended – Great for lighting and power cable management. Small enough not to interfere with fitment of panels, strong enough to hold parts neatly and securely in place.

Quite possibly the smallest cables ties in the world – these tiny zip ties have been designed to simulate the real thing and look great on scale models.

Now new and improved – these mini cable ties are even easier to install with longer tails and improved hold once locked. Installation is easy, just peel and tie your micro zip ties in place!

They click and lock as you pull and hold small wires in place with style. Great for interior and exterior model detailing such as engine compartments, plus also useful for general cable management such as lighting and power cables etc.

These mini cable ties were originally designed as a mod for the 1:8 DeLorean Time Machine model by Eaglemoss. But they are equally suitable for modding any other 1:8 or other large scale model that would benefit from adding tiny zip ties, such as the 1:8 Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Hero Collector, or the 1:6 Hot Toys DeLorean Time Machine

They are available in two colours – black and white.

What’s included:

  • 1 x Pack of 40 mini cable ties
  • Illustrated set of installation instructions

To fit these mini cable ties you will need:

  • A good pair of fine point tweezers – one to support the head and one to pull the tie through
  • Good eyesight, patience, and a steady hand
Tip: Gluing is totally optional but can provide a more permanent hold. A tiny dot of Loctite Super Glue placed in a discreet place behind each head is very effective, best applied using the tip of a cocktail stick.

Where do the cable ties go in the DeLorean Time Machine?

Note: Given their micro scale, these cable tie mods are designed for cosmetic purposes only. They are intended for use in scale modelling projects and should therefore not be expected to perform as a traditional cable tie in larger scale applications.
All other model parts and accessories shown in the photos outside of the ‘What’s included’ list above are not included and are shown purely for demonstration and application purposes.

    This set of mini cable ties are my second set. They have proved to be such a great and wonderful detail to my DeLorean model. They give the model that extra special detail it needed other than what we get from Eaglemoss the this black wire and the large black wire ties. So thank you Mike Lane for being the person who notices this finer details not only for the DeLorean but all of the mods and models you do.

    Die Kabelbinder waren für die Zündverkabelung des Porsche 917KH von IXO (1:8) überaus hilfreich. Mit etwas Übung und einer guten Lupenbrille lassen sie sich problemlos auch ohne Pinzette anbringen. Das Fixieren mit einem Tropfen Sekundenkleber kann ich nur empfehlen. Tolles, professionelles Tool.

    These cable ties are much more accurate in size and scale and will definitely give your Delorean a decidedly more realistic look. Please note these these are a bit fiddly as they are quite tiny and take a bit of practice and patience. I recommend a few minutes of meditation before working with these. It will help to get you in the "zone" and hopefully alleviate any frustration that may occur whilst working with them. Thanks Mike for another great mod.

    These tiny cable ties are truly fantastic. Yes it takes patience but it’s 100% with it. I ordered one set to see how they worked and then ordered more including the black ties. These cables remedy the issue of the inaccurate and oversized cable ties but also really make your model pop with added realism.
