3″ Scale (1:4) body kits with pre-coloured welded steel assemblies, sound units, wooden rear deck and other accessories to convert a 24v mobility scooter into a powerful and realistic miniature vintage vehicle.
The Matador kit also includes window glazing and working lights, while the Sentinel has brass effect beading and a very effective smoke unit, that runs on cold water.
The models are quick and easy to build (it is possible to complete them in a few days) and, once mounted on the mobility scooter chassis, create a realistic, sturdy and very powerful miniature vehicle, which can easily carry a driver and passenger, a heavy load, or tow a small truck.
Build them with the new shortened steering and seat pad provided in the kit, with the driver and passengers sitting on the rear deck, or retain the original seat and steering from the mobility scooter for a higher seating position.
The finished models are approximately 1.5m (5 feet) long and they have a split chassis, so that the vehicles can be quickly split into two sections which makes lifting, storage and transportation much easier and also means that it is possible to transport the vehicles in the back of many family cars without the need for a trailer.
As the original mobility scooter is reported to have a range of up to 15 – 20 miles with a set of fully charged good batteries, the completed models should have plenty of charge for a day at a rally, show or carnival.

THESE PRODUCTS ARE NOT SOLD AS CHILDREN’S TOYS OR AS MOBILITY SCOOTERS.
Both kits are designed to fit the chassis of a Shoprider Sovereign 4 (S888NR or TE888NR) mobility scooter, which is NOT included in the kit. (We do not recommend using other makes or models of mobility scooter, as fixing points, electrical connectors and circuits may not be compatible).
These particular scooters have been manufactured for many years and so there are lots of them around. You can normally find a second-hand one for sale for between £150 and £300 on eBay, preloved or gumtree auction and sales websites, or from a local dealer, or small ad in the local paper.
If you need further advice or assistance obtaining a suitable scooter, please contact us and we will try to help you find a suitable chassis. We may also be able to source one for you if you are unable to do so yourself, and we do occasionally have a pre-owned mobility scooter in stock, but you must be able to collect it with your kit from our premises in Bromsgrove.
