I`ll third that. I have tires from these kits that I painted almost 10 years ago, and I swear they are still tacky.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! I, too, can't wait to see the finished product, but I guess that's sort of up to me :P

I traded a set of my Foose wheels with 57peppershaker for these gorgeous Goodyear Eagles. (Thank you, again!) It took quite a bit of trimming to get the rally wheels to fit, but they sure look good. Any tips on painting the raised lettering?

 

if i may ask?

what sort of trimming did you do to get those wheels to fit inside the Goodyears?

i've been looking at the wheels myself but they look way to big to fit in there..

i would really like to use them in order to get some meat in the wheel wells

the stock ones look to skinny ...considering this was a high performance car back then

I didn't do anything to the tires, but I had to trim about a millimeter off the outside circumference of each rim.

 

Left is before, right is after.

It was VERY tedious, I must admit. I was also glad I had two sets to work with, since I messed up one of them. I used an x-acto knife and 150 grit sandpaper to get the majority of the material off. I wish you good luck :)

Tedious, but it looks like you did an excellent job!  B)

just saw what mr Thibausometing did with this kit...

still don't have a clue what's knocking people about the other magazine...

but he built this thing Foose style..and i like it.. some more detailing would knock it out of the park...

maybe it's not realistic (cross rams aren't easy picked up streetcorner),,,and the wheels are a little big ..

but i like it ..give the guys ...be it Foose or Revell some credit..

it looks great..

Andrew, get yourself a white Gel Pen from Michaels or Hobby Lobby, that's what i use for raised white letters. They may be a bit hard to find, but they're out there, and they work great!

This one's been done for about 17 years now, and the white Gel Pen's ink is still as nice as the day I put it on!
