1:8 Mini Cable Ties

(21 customer reviews)

£16.00 ex VAT


My mini cable ties are the ideal solution for 1:8 scale model projects. These tiny zip ties have been designed to simulate the real thing. Installing them is easy. No pre-soaking required – just peel and tie your micro zip ties in place!

These mini cable ties were originally designed for use on the 1:8 DeLorean Time Machine model by Eaglemoss. But they are equally suitable for any other 1:8 replica model that would benefit from adding tiny zip ties, such as the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Hero Collector!

They are available in two colours: black and white.

What’s included:

  • 1 x Pack of 40 mini cable ties in two lengths (30 long and 10 regular).

To fit these mini cable ties you will need:

  • A good set of fine point tweezers
  • Good eyesight, patience, and a steady hand 😄
Gluing Tip: Gluing is optional, but will offer a more permanent hold if desired. If you intend to glue I would recommend a tiny dot of Super Glue (on the end of a cocktail stick for instance) in a discreet place behind the head so not to ruin the appearance.

Positioning your Mini Cable Ties:

1) “Where do the cable ties go in the DeLorean Time Machine?”

Here’s a collection of photos showing the exact location of all the cable ties (both black and white): http://bit.ly/cable-ties

Thank you to Todd at http://mybttfdelorean.com who was kind enough to snap and share these photos of the original DeLorean ‘A’ car itself on display at the Petersen Museum in Los Angeles, California.

2) “How many sets do I need?”

This all depends on how detailed you want to go. Some builders are quite happy to replace the supplied over-sized ones for mine, in which case a single pack of white and a single pack of black will do the trick. However, for the rivet counters of you out there (myself included) who wish to detail their DeLorean true to the original, I would recommend a minimum of two white packs and one black pack. Each pack comes with 40 mini cable ties, and of course, if you need more you can always come back!

Note: Given their micro scale, these ties are designed for cosmetic purposes only. They are intended for use in 1:8 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 only.

    They are incredible, the scale is awesome. These mini cable ties are so freaking tiny, and they looking so awesome in the cockpit !

    Having purchased every single one of Mike Lane’s Mods, I can honestly say that the man is a genius, and his mods shine accordingly…!
    I love the attention to detail of the cable ties.

  6. Enrico Del Prete (verified owner)

    Beside all the incredible mods Mike does with dedication and passion…i think Mike is the real deal: honest, friendly and talkative and understanding. Qualities that for sure are very hard to find singularly…here they are all together within him! So the comment is big thank you for being YOU

    I keep coming back every time something new is released. The quality and response time is superb. The quality is MUCH higher than what you received from the model manufacturer. Great work Mike!

    I follow mike since the beginning and this one is the hardest one made by mike! We suffer trying to put hiroboy cable tyre on the car, from that mike decide to take time to make this mod even better and easier to fit! Thanks mike to improve all the time the car.
    I can tell the mod and the even more the guy is, wait for it , awesome !

    This guy has incredible mods, he puts so much love and detail in his products and these cable ties are a must have for your Delorean.

    Great quality item that adds another level of realism to the model. The originally supplied cableties are the wrong colour and far too big which ruins the DeLorean cabin. Like all of Mike’s mods these are essential for your build.

  11. DJ_BTTF (verified owner)

    These cable ties are great – as great as all mods from Mike Lane! I enjoy the details again and again. These tiny cable ties actually work like their big role models.

  12. Ricco Streitmatter (verified owner)

    Unbelievable how tiny these ties are, a must for that clean realistic look for the cables. Get some precision tweezers and some reading glasses!

  13. Michael Santana (verified owner)

    I’m not far in the issues yet to use these zip ties, but I can tell by these are true quality items. Thank you for helping my dream car come true!

  14. ALESSANDRO_SPILLER (verified owner)

    Un altra MOD di sicuro effetto che conferisce al modello tutto un altro aspetto,come sempre di ottima qualità, se volete che i cavetti della Delorean siano identici al modello del film non potete farne a meno,vi consiglio di prenderne almeno due confezioni, come sempre Mike non si smentisce, solo il meglio per la nostra Delorean

  15. Fred Fuchs

    These add to the authenticity of the model like no other.

  16. James Roberts (verified owner)

    A must have. Nothing out there comes close and they really set the car off.

  17. Brian MacNutt (verified owner)

    The cable ties are exquisite and in perfect scale. Way to go, Mike!

  18. maartenvermaak (verified owner)

    Very tiny, but with some practice these are good to handle. They look asome.

  19. Kevin Bryan (verified owner)

    Amazing quality, and really help the interior of the car look like it should. A quality set of needle nose tweezers really helps with the installation of these, but really is worth the effort fitting them. They look fantastic.
