Rio Rondo Enterprises Trad. Scale
Driving Bits

Add a realistic touch to your model horse harness projects with Rio Rondo's scale-model Driving Bit shanks. Bits are sold by the set or pair, and will add the perfect touch to any miniature harness.

The bits we offer are actually shanks or rings (no mouthpieces). Use Tacky Wax wax to keep the bit shanks in place temporarily... there's no need to saw the mouth open on a perfectly good model!

Bits are available in both Traditional and Classic scales.
All bit shanks are sold as a set of Left And Right.

Tacky Wax

Use this soft, tacky wax (also known as "Sticky Wax" or "Mini-Hold Wax") to hold bits in place on the model's mouth, help position reins, props, dolls, accessories and more. One pot will last a lifetime...it's a well known fact you're more likely to lose the pot than use it all up!

#HD10 – Tacky Wax — $3.50 each.
