    I just saw today, that archer transfers has a new sheet with all different sizes of confederate flag decals

    There's a picture of a Revell Charger built as the General Lee, using Joseph's wheels on Google images. They look perfect on it! I'll be using them on mine!
    The next best Vector wheels I've seen come from the AMT Eckler Corvette kit.

    Looks like slixxs is about to release a brand-new set of decals for the General Lee. I'll be using those if they do.

    General Lee that I would like to build
    Hey guys, I know, I know, everyone is tired of hearing about the General Lee. I've never really been interested in that car very much, but for some reason, it has currently peaked my interest. I would like to build one but I would like it to be as good as possible. My question is, would the Revell 69 Charger be the best kit to use to build the most accurate version? I plan on using the really nice Vector wheels from Fireball Model Works and some aftermarket decals. With this build an accurate General Lee?

    Correct, deep Cragar rear wheels to fit the Zingers kits?
    I'm a stickler about replicating the real thing when possible. I really love the little MPC Zingers kits but don't like how they have the wrong rear wheels. I was wondering if anyone has found a source for a deep Cragar wheel that will fit the Zingers rear tires?

    Tires do look a tad bit small but the truck does look good.

    Now you just need one of these slide in campers to go with it!

    Those Spin Welder sets were cool! I have the 7up dragster in a bottle kit.
  13. Ben added a post in a topic is it only a matter of scale?   

    What I don't get is, are the people complaining about recent kits just building them straight from the box? Basically wanting them to fall together? I see kits as "a big help or a starting point" to the model I want to build. If it has inaccuracies, I correct them. That's my job as model builder. It's like being a mechanic. If you can overcome problems and figure things out and then fix them, your a mechanic. If you just open a box and install a part, your just that, a parts installer, not a mechanic. If you consider yourself a "model builder" then consider each obstical as a challenge to your modeling capabilities and overcome them.

    Still no reply from Heinz and I can't find the kit anywhere on their website (Modelltruck.at) ?
