Me too Steve! Chuck B is planning some great decal sheets for this kit, so I'm sure I'll be buying at least a few more.

How are the rims and tires in this kit? I am hoping that Hobby lobby will get them. Can anyone post some pics of the kit opened up??

Sorry guys. I have a life outside of making model cars which sometimes detracts from the time I get to take and post pictures of every new kit I pick up. Hope these help.

Thank, AZ! I really want to compare the wheels to the Aurora ones and the tires to the original Revell units. 

 

I notice the lack of manufacturer on the tires. We can make them M&H or Firestones! 

 

Special thanks to the guy that helped Revell get them done! You know who you are!

No, those are the Cragar Super Tricks that they've always had in these kits.

Yes Allen...Chuck makes a 1/16th version of the Garlits Charger driven by Gary Bolger. He's had those for quite a while now.

Well, I know of someone who is working with Revell on new wheels and tires. Apparently Revell has to re-do the tires because they can no longer get them from their source. So we can at least look forwards to that! And new decals!

 

Out of curiosity, was Tom West involved with (possibly) designing the new wheels and tires? The tires are very (very) close in size the the Aurora parts and have that same "feel," though they are not exactly the same. Either way, the new tires and wheels are a very welcome addition, and should be included inside every future re-issue of the Vega, Duster/Dart, Charger, and Grand Am kits.

No, Tom West was not involved in this one. Hopefully I am ok saying who was consulted on it and it was Mark Johnson. The same MJ who has done all those super nice resin drag engines in 1/16th 

 

And yes, they should include them in every future release and also sell them as a parts pack set so we can fix all their older stuff!

Thanks. I knew Mark was involved, but the tires are just so Aurora-like it made me wonder.

 

AFAIK, they have to include them in all future issues of the F/C and T/F dragsters, as Revell can no longer get the "old" tires from the manufacturer in Japan. No tears from me, though, as the old tires were the weakest parts in the kits. Hmmmm, makes me wonder if they will (or already have?) created new front tires for the dragster kits, too.
