RE: "I've been told (and its been mentioned) that the markings on the existing M&H slicks aren't correct (M&H never had white letters) but a lot of guys liked to paint the letters by hand with whitewall paint. I've seen redline pie crust slicks in 1:1, not sure if they were M&H or not."

According to the pictures in the recent articale in the first issue of "Elapsed Times" from Car Craft they look like dead ringers to the pictures in all of their adds. This is a 12 page article about M&H Racemaster drag slicks.

Scroll to the bottom pic, it shows the sidewall with both stripes the best. Strangely enough, there's an earlier scene where Herman and Grandpa are building the car that shows it with wider blackwalls and different wheels, more like what the car had on the show.
Well, at least now I know what I'm putting mine on! Just need to get another Drag-U-La when the single kits come out.


Oh cool! I love the Munsters and so does my Dad! It's his favorite show ever.

I'm definitely planning on building a Dragula for him one of these days and these will come in handy!

Actually, "Hot Rod Herman" was my favorite episode. Remember when Herman pulls the shifter out of the car and it has all kinds of tranny guts dangling from it? LOL

I laughed so hard at the beginning, when Grandpa was sitting and reading the newspaper- "It's says this year, the Yankees are out for blood. I'll tell ya, that sure is a whole lot funner than playing baseball..." :lol: :lol:

I just got an email from Model Roundup saying that orders are now availible on AMT newest parts pack, two sets of Firestone Delux Champion Whitewalls. They are priced at $12.90 at Model Roundup.

Here's what's on MR's Site:

Firestone Deluxe Champion Tire Pack (1/25) (fs)

The second serving of AMT's classic Tire-Pack reissues is here...the classic Firestone "Deluxe Champion" stock tire set. This venerable tire has been retooled a couple of times over the years, as it's used in so many kits. The earliest 1/25 replica of this tire became dubbed the "Trophy Series" tire, as it was generic without any sidewall lettering. Later retools saw Firestone lettering added and changes in the style and accuracy of the tread pattern. AMT's new incarnation of the tire has improved detail, featuring an accurate tread pattern, engraved Firestone lettering as well as the "F" crest and associated "Gum Dipped" lettering.

Features

  • 1 set of four Firestone Deluxe Champion Thin Whitewall tires
  • 1 set of four Firestone Deluxe Champion Wide Whitewall tires

Pictures? Anyone? Pictures?


When my plastic pusher approached me about a pre-order, I got the impression it was a 2-pr set of slicks. I thought the price a little high, considering the previous release of slicks in multiple pairs. Guess I missed the boat. :huh:


Pictures?

Those I am actually interested in. The Wide-Whites would look correct on a 40'-50's
Factory Stock cruiser
The Narrow Stripe Whites would look correct on any 60'-70's!!

Do I detect just the slightest twinge of sarcasm in that remark? ^_^

I just saw these at Hobbytown USA. Not bad, but I don't think I'll be paying $17.99 for two sets of Firestones.

Any idea why these are so much more than the first set? I paid $10 at my lLHS for the first set.

Probably licensing costs w/ Firestone contributed to the cost.
