I would like to see the MPC F60 Speedway's  

(They were in the M-K 70 Bonneville and I though modified into the GT's in the

       Modern 71 Duster kit. and many mid 70's annuals)

The G70's (They do need to fix the tooling, several recent sets I have

are too thin, as one side is inset)

I would also like to see the Old Original MPC Tall Skinny Power Cushion's!

 

Yes I would like White-stripe sides, and maybe even Wide-wide whites of the Power-Cushions.

 

I want the Firestone Champion's, but None of the slicks!

I build Stock.

How about a parts pack with the Firestone A/T tires from the old AMT 79 Bronco and 72 Blazer/Jimmy kits? Desert Dog PCVs that MPC used in everything 4WD?

Round2 has found a sweet spot with parts pack tires, and I think if they pit the Polyglas GT tires in a parts pack (#6, perhaps?), they would be a huge

 

 

Agreed, If they put the F60-15 in  packs of lets say 4 or even better packs of 8 . I'll buy several right out of the gate.  I might even take a few sets of the L60-15s just for sport

Both Model King and Stevens have been schelpping the G-70's for several years...  albeit in plain packaging,  ~$4 a set retail.  I'll bet no one even knows...  

 

The power of a neat little red box with a big AMT logo in the corner cannot be underestimated...

When we were discussing these tires last November, I suggested that those of you who were interested in seeing them sold separately follow my example and drop Round2 a polite note at the address inside the link below. If we show enough interest, we might be able to make this happen.

re: weak pre-orders on motorcycle parts packs: do you guys believe all the marketing spin you read? because i find it very hard, very hard indeed to believe they had few preorders of the motorcycles and at the same time (well, different company) they put out dreck like that Gremlin junk and tom daniels cartoons and whatever else we are "graced" with. what i think is the engine parts packs didnt sell so they sunk the whole project.

 

i am on a whole other page with those polyglas tires but then again i think disco era american cars they would be most appropriate on should never have been made in the 1:1 and certainly not commemorated in model kits. as far as i am concerned those hunks of junk should be relegated to the wreckers hook and rust in peace in some land fill.

Those were Gates Commando's Not A/T's!!

I do not remember AMT having A/T's.

 

I have both an original 79 "Wild Hoss" Bronco and an M-K re-issue. Gates!

Same with the Blazers.

I have a "Crew Chief & 2 M-K's And an Original 72 Bushwacker GMC Jimmy.

All have Gates Commando's for the 4x4 suspension!

 

Those Gates are hollow too.

Round2 has released two sizes of Goodyear Polyglas GT tires recently, and we're waiting to hear what Parts Pack #6 will contain, but yes, more updated tires would be a good thing to have.

 

This is the first I've heard of these. Where are these for sale?  I've seen the AMT Parts Paks for the two sizes of Racemaster slicks, the Pie Crusts and the whitewall Firestones, but I haven't seen Polyglass GTs in a Parts Pak yet.

I bought 20 or so sets (of 4) of the mpc Goodyear tires (like those in the Mpc '76 Caprice) from Model round up, are these the G70s you mention?

They aren't available in a Parts Pack yet, and I'm not sure if they will be. If they are, it may be PP#006, but only Round2 can say if'n that'll happen.

 

For now, we have to buy the reissued AMT '66 Mustang coupe or the '69 Hurst/Olds Cutlass kits to get the newly tooled Polyglas GT tires.

Thanks Casey. I seem to have misunderstood your earlier post. I see what you meant now.

Also the new Opel.  :)

Yep.  Were they bagged and  stapled to a little red and white card?  If so, they came from Stevens. There's even a slim chance they were packaged by yours truly... :)

$7.95?!?!  They only retailed for $3.95!  At least shipping is free!  We did some redlines and cheater slicks about 10 years back, the G70s were done about 3 or 4 years ago.

Thanks for that warning. I was going to ask if they accepted Postal MO. Now, I will just use them out of kits.

That's a fair price actually once what you figure shipping cost would be, plus Ebay is going to take their cut from him.

You can get them from Model Round Up for $3 a set.*  If we still had any I'd sell them to you myself, but we sold the last of them a couple weeks ago.  

 

*I have no direct personal or professional connection to Model Round Up, but they do buy from our company.

Yeah, I guess.  Different view from the inside looking out.  Been a long time since I paid retail for hobby gear!  B)
