Nope, those are the '94-'95 17" tri-bars. They might be a good one to convert to the 15" 6cyl wheels, as they look more like a 16" wheel in scale.

Cool CPB!

I just got back to Japan from my forced summer 4 month summer "vacation" in Alaska :angry: If you don't mind, I'd like to join in. It'll give me an excuse to build my Tamiya Mustang that I've had sitting on my shelf for the last 15 years :D

Got my diecast '94 GT Ragtop in from eBay today (I'll try and shoot/posta pic later). It's in NIB condition,but man those things were a bit...not well assembled,LOL! I may yet go ahead and pull it's wheels for the replica I want to build of my 1:1...then again,I may not,may find another one that isn't the same color as my real one,LOL! I WILL get one started this weekend (barring major unforseens) :)

Edit: Here's pics :D

They are definitely a toy, and not a model, but those wheels are pretty close. As has been suggested, you might try casting them yourself - small parts like these are pretty easy to do in resin.

IDK...I barely have room to build now,or time oddly enough,LOL! I thinks I'd rather see if someone who knows what they're doing look into casting them...

I'm finally getting to the bench and getting a couple started (Both Monogram 1:25 kits). I gots the '94 Cobra/Indy Pace Car ragtop and GT hardtop kits,and I'm converting them to a GT ragtop (like my 1:1) and a Cobra hardtop. The most noticable differences are the bumpers,wheels,and certain engine bits,so I've been doing a bit of bodywork today. So far,I've only got the front bumpers swapped and fender emblems sanded off. Here's some pics...
Before and after...

Looking good so far Stephen. Your cuts are more clean and precise than mine are! Keep at it, and keep us posted. I know the convertible will be red, but how about the Cobra Coupe?

Thanks my friend,and as for color on the HT...don't know yet,LOL! The fronts were a bit easier to cut precisely than the rears. I have one grafted on,but it will still need a bit of puty and file work. After and Before pics:

Yeah, your cuts are still better than mine! I am in the process of kitbashing/scratchbuilding an 84 Mustang T-Top Coupe at the moment, and my cuts aren't that clean!

Looks like the 'Humptey-Dumpteys' are coming back together again in fine fashion, Stephen. I will keep one eye on this thread when I can spare it just to see what you and your counterparts cook up.

Looks like this ones off to a great start. Nice conversions.

I've been on a casting spree filling orders, so nothing done to my Stang yet. Not too sure how wild I'll go, but it'll definately have a unique drivetrain...I cannot build an engineless curbside :lol:

Jimmy, don't worry about time. This is open-ended as well.


And a unique drivetrain huh? ;)
