Wait a minute, waitaminit - is that a buggy-sprung beam axle I spy on that kit?

 

I mean, it already warrants two or three copies on first buy - are Rat Roaster/Deuce supplements now a fourth?

Intersting, it looks like there are 12 spoke spindle mounts in there! Wonder if those are old parts pack wheels they put in there?

I may be losing it here but I don't recall the 1960 issue as having any chrome in it....seems it was all a matte silver kind of color and of course the front bicycle wheels were clear disks with raised spokes as indicated in an earlier post....some chrome would be a welcome addition....but then again a little Alclad here and there on the parts that need it and no problem.....again I will be interested to see the final scale....

 

Regards

Bill (Duntov)

Yep, I still have the chrome valve covers and headers. I believe the front suspension was chromed too.

Love that this kit is being issued BUT "weedburner" headers would be more correct for this vintage rail rather than "zoomies"

Zoomies appeared in 1964. No deal breaker tho...This is what parts boxes are for !   lol

Looks like, if you install the headers on opposite sides, they'll point downwards like weedburners.  I wonder if someone put them on incorrectly on the display models...

Since all the builder gets is a bagged test shot with no instructions I would say that's a very good possibility....

I see what you mean...the box art illustrations seem to show the headers pointed sideways and downwards...

I've been waiting for this kit for a good long time. I have parts and kits enough to make a few of the old kits. I'm at a loss to say how I feel about the clear front spoked wheels. I did see where some one BMF a set and it did come off quite well. But looking at the new kit I have to wonder how many steps back we just took?  :huh:

 

Any thoughts on the lovely wire wheels in the new Slingster ?   :wacko:

Hard to tell from a blurry picture of preproduction kits.

They suck big time. I had been hoping they would revise the beautiful clear discs with delicate lacing like the original, but no. The zoomies look dumb too. Fortuantely the tree seems to show they have included the original style.

as klunky as they are, those wheels are ideal for the throwback look on the model, and look a darn sight better than the original clear plastic ones ever did. and those headers always looked dumb no matter which way they pointed. but again, to me at least, that was part of the charm of this re-do. (edit: oops sorry, I was referring to the original headers, not the new tool zoomies you are)  almost unbelievable how they appear to have really re-captured the look of the original with just a few little modifications, mostly for the better, but in true scale instead of way too large. best release of the year, domestic market, for whatever year it actually comes out in. easily upgraded too, using probably wires from the tony nancy reissue for instance.
