I can't see why Moebius would make a limited run if it's a money maker for them?

 

Most likely a test, on how fast or slow they sell.

If the evaluation is positive, I'm sure they will act appropriately upon that data.

Hi,

 

I've ordered two sets.  Thanks for the heads up!  They'll go well with a resin W900L with studio sleeper I'm slowly building up parts for.  I'm sure I can find a good use for the second set!

 

I think its pretty safe to say Moebius will have the sales to justify short production runs of these from time to time.  After all, it must be pretty easy money.

 

It'd be good to have more stuff like this available to spruce up our rigs, especially stuff that is chromed or polished aluminium.

One of the vendors at the show last weekend had this for $16, and I considered picking it up; but then I remembered my LoneStar that was sitting on the contest table. The tires had fused to the diaplay case bottom, and I could not remove them. Before I had put the model into a display case I had it on a shelf, and the tires stuck to that, too. Has anyone else had this problem with the Moebius tires?

Mine have been good so far. Built mine a while ago.

Hey Jim this sounds like a sticky situation.  Just got 2 sets from Jack @ Model Roundup and put them on two original 359 Petes replacing the kit tires.  Did not notice any problem yet but the trucks sit on pine shelves that are polyurethaned and about every 6 months are wiped down with Pledge.  This may keep them from sticking, I'll find out.  Did notice that the tires are somewhat soft.  They look good, I ordered two more sets for  the T866 Petes.

Nice to see tires that look more realistic.

New rims on the front of a snap Pete. Use the AMT 11.00 tires and they make a big difference on these kits.

Went to my LHS last Monday, and he was already sold out of the 12 or each that he had originally ordered.  Said he'd try re-ordering some more and set a couple aside for me when they come in.  Shop owner was surprised that they sold so fast.

Hi everyone!

 

I've just started building my first truck - the 1/24 Revell Kenworth dump truck - absolutely loving it so far.

 

One thing is starting to bug me though - the more I look at it the more I think the wheels don't look right. They just seem to look a bit too small for the size of the rig.

I saw on another post where a guy had a similar kit (the sleeper version I think) which had some of the wheels missing that someone recommended trying the moebius big rig wheel kit.

 

I just wondered if anyone could tell me what the outer diameter is of the tyres so I can compare them to the ones in the Kenworth kit please?

 

I'll post a few pics of the kit so far when I get home in the workbench section - it'd be interesting to get some feedback :-)

 

Thanks guys :-)
