Unfortunately, until recently, good in-scale model traffic cones were hard to find. For the most part, performance showers have had to make their own, and the results are not always pretty.

As far as homemade hobby cones go, these are top notch, and they have served me well over the years.
Recently, however, I've found something even better.These 1:10 scale traffic cones are produced by RC4WD for the radio control car crowd. They are, without a doubt, the best traditional scale model traffic cones I've ever seen. Everything about these cones makes the miniaturist in me happy. I love the bright colors and the top-to-bottom realistic construction.
The cones are lightweight but durable and stack wonderfully.
Best of all, they have a list price of $6.99 for a set of ten. Even with shipping, that works out to less than one dollar per cone.
It's my experience that bargains like this do not last forever. They get discontinued or the company goes out of business or something and it's back to making cones from Super Sculpey or Wilton cake decorating tips. If you're a performance shower or a wanna be performance shower, do yourself a favor and buy yourself a set of cones now. They also make great stocking stuffers for all your performance loving friends!
