Just got my kits today and decided to check the tires. Don't know if it's a early mold issue or they corrected the part, but both kits I opened didn't have mismatched tires they all looked good. I like the new tread pattern. I wonder if tires size could be corrected by removing the tampo printing and using a shabo set to correct the size? Ideas?

I was thinking that myself the other day. I've seen some N scale railroad decal/rub-offs(like Shabo's) that may work if the size and font is the same or similar.

Trying to find a supplier for the shabo tire lettering that might match. Any ideas would be welcomed.

I  purchased the AMT 69 Hurst Olds Cutlass kit a few months back & was wondering if anyone has built this kit yet. Was thinking of possibly making this my next build.

I have built one, its an excellent kit with a very nice engine, and transmission that responds well to extra detailing if desired. Well fitting parts with poseable steering, and a nice set of American wheels.

Very nice kit.  Still has a tub interior, but the balance is very well done.

Check out the review written by Tom Valenta in the latest issue of SA.  It should be helpful.

This was an old MPC annual in it's day. I have one squirreled away I built way long ago. I don't recall having any issues with fit . To me , the kit fell together very well and looked very nice .

No annual, IIRC tooled up in the late '80s

Yes, it was tooled about the same time as AMT's 66 Nova kit.
