This one has the exact replacement tires from Revell, in case anybody else wanted further clarification:

Thanks Chuck. They don't appear to be as wide as the decals, which is what I was afraid of. Hmmmmm.

 

And yes, beautiful model, sir.

'Preciate that, Bill, and that's right - the tampo whites are a notably narrower pattern than the decals.

 

Here one sits to the left of a tire I airbrushed thru a compass-cut card stock stencil:

I used white Duplicolor vinyl dye to absorb the flexing of getting the wheel in, but I suspect a hobby-grade acrylic white might also be able to cut it.

Interesting idea to use the vinyl dye, Chuck. Nice model, too.

 

I didn't really realize those WWWs are a bit narrower. They still look good, though.

Thanks, Charlie!

 

Pretty sure I picked up that vinyl dye suggestion online some place, just can't remember if it was here or another forum...

I've posted that the dye worked on the vinyl interior stuff in the newer AMT kits,& if you have a automotive paint store that handles SEM products they have a pretty good selection of colors in over the counter sprays, & can mix it in any color you might need in a formula that's all ready to spray & works well in an airbrush, & it works well on plastic if built up in light coats, unless it's a part that is supposed to be vinyl or leather. Then the heavier coats will work fine.

Ah, just might have been you, then, Del.

 

Thanks for the added info. Good stuff!
