    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.
  7. 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) ?

    I had sent him several emails over the past few months with no reply. I sent another email today. Hopefully he will reply?

    For those that have this kit, how did you go about getting it? I placed an order for mine over a year ago and have not had any word from Heinz on it?
