Good news for me. I just ordered another one for a personal build.


Interesting to see what it comes with.

I just finished up the first set of modern Cragar S/S style wheels for the 1/12 Revell 2010 Shelby GT500 kit, and I'm working on two other wheel centers:

Very nice wheels. I have been checking SMS website daily for the availability of their sets. November was mentioned but it is obviously going to be later.

I'm wanting a "KR" conversion to come out with the Alcoa wheels, hood and decals. I'd love to build a Knight Rider version of this car. Yeah I know, KITT was an earlier GT500KR, but KITT can morph into any shape he wants, so I would think he'd want to have the updated body :)

Those look as nice as your 1/24th-1/25th wheels, Casey! If they are, I just might have to pick up one of these 'Big Boys' and go all out on it.

I have bought a few sets of Casey's resin wheels & they are really fine castings. Beautiful parts.

Scale Motorsports still hasn't released their Components for the 1/12 Shelby. The photos have shown a wheel kit but there is no mention of it on their website.

I love the idea of aftermarket wheels for the big scale Shelby, but I thought I'd add a little constructive criticism. To be accurate, these wheels really need to lose the offset (deep dish). You won't find anything like that on a modern Mustang - all the wheels on the market have very little offset due to the fact that the brakes and hubs extend so far out toward the outside of the car, and thus, the spokes of the wheels are pushed to the outside of the rim. With modern big brakes and suspension, the days of deep dish wheels (or any dish, really) have come and gone. A Google search will show you what I'm referring to, and here's just one example.

That's true. Almost all modern wheels are high positive offset, versus the older zero or negative offset ("deep dish") wheels, making it difficult (less believable?) to use older wheels on newer vehicles, or vice-versa.

Beautiful resin work Casey. You don't haooen to do a 1/12 289-302 Ford engine, or a 1/12 modular overhead cammer by any chance do you? I'm needing 1/12 Ford power for a Datsun Z-car build. Or a 1/12 Ford 9" rear end??
