New 1/24 Indy Mags in 3 different widths

10 July 2014 - 08:52 AM

Hey guys,

I have some new 1/24 wheels that I am ready to start selling.  They are based on the 15" US Mags Indy 5-slot wheel and I have made them in three different widths to represent different rim widths.

They will be available in pairs, and possibly also in 4-packs of staggered fronts & backs.  

 

Thanks for looking,

Joseph


New 15" Wheels for Light Trucks

10 July 2014 - 08:42 AM

Hey folks,

I have a new 1/24 wheel set that I'm ready to start selling.  The basic wheel is modeled on a Pacer 15" and I have made two versions; one has a standard Pacer center cap and the other has a manual locking 4X4 hub.  These are original 3D models that I have created and are not recasts or modified versions of any kit wheel.  There is a wheel back that matches the wheels, too:

They are specifically made to fit the two 15" tires I have already released, but will fit other tires:

I will be selling these wheels in pair packs (with backs), so if you want to do a 4x4 truck, you'd get one pack of standard wheels and one pack of locking-hub wheels.  For a 4x2 truck, you could just get two packs of standard wheels.  

 

I am also thinking about making wheel & tire package sets and putting them on eBay.  

 

Thanks for looking,

Joseph

 

 

 

 

 


Now THIS is what a 1/24 figure should look like...

...as opposed to the crappy, blobby figures that car modelers are usually forced to use.

Now the bad news: it'll probably be at least $30, and is only available from a Russian company.


Some new 1/25 Tires Available Now from Fireball Modelworks

11 April 2014 - 04:33 AM

Hello all,

Thanks to everyone who supported me with the 1/24 tires that I've offered for the past couple of years.  Now I've made some 1/25 scale tires to specifically address the needs of those slightly smaller model cars:

 

First is item FMR-030, a set of two BFG Drag Radials in 325/50-15 size:

I also have two sizes of BFG Radial TA's in 225/60-15 and 275/60-15, each sold in sets of two.  I made these tires to represent the "street machine" look on classic musclecar kits such as the new Revell 'Cuda.

I am producing these Radial TA's in both hard white resin and flexible black rubber.  The hard white resin version can be finished by painting the tire black and then sanding the paint from the raised letters, as in this photo:
