I have a set of the MH race masters from AMT's 76 Gremlin, and the words "MH RACEMASTER" have rubbed off of one of the two tires in the kit.Has anyone else had this problem?Does anybody have a spare that they could send me? Thanks in advance.

I've never had the printing rub off but I have never handled them much, I'm sure with enough rubbing you can get it off.

Shoot an email to Round2 to let them know ( I understand that one of their top guys is also a member of this forum , or is at least in contact with some members here ) . Perhaps it's a production-run problem ? Maybe a climate-of-storage problem (i.e. , high humidity , too dry , etc. , etc. ) ?
Either way , I'd let Round2 know about this , even if it's not any fault of theirs .

I've never experienced the printing wearing off the tyres .

I can post some pictures tomorrow (maybe) to show what it did.

It could have been the printing just didn't stick. Anything can happen with a model...
