The new wheels with tabs make it alot harder for young kids (and old guys with arthritis) to assemble.

The more they make these kits harder, the less new modelers will be willing to buy/build more. It seems the manufacturers are hurting themselves trying to save a few pennies. 

 

I think every kit should come with a set a custom wheels.

 

I'll buy a 2-n-1 kit before I'll buy one that can be build only one way. 

this, but considering what revell has brought to the table in recent years they can kick rocks in that department, what annoys me is the crappy tires they come with like "hey lets make all our tires look like those crappy discount tires you get at wallmart" only makes the finished product look like something you rent at Avis combine that with crappy custom wheels and it looks like a old man that thought the 2200$ custom wheel option was a good idea.

Harry P. says "the world doesn't work that way"

What about the Revell California Wheels kits, huh?, two sets of wheels.

Wow!   Like free fries, only better.
