I sure hope the rear tires are bigger than the last versions they offered.

 

Hard to say for sure, but it looks like they are, and the shoulders more squared off, too, similar to the Aurora M&H Racemaster slicks.

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.
