  1. Halibrand Wheel Project

    Pretty sure this kit uses the same tires as the 1980s-revision Monogram '36 Ford coupe. Fronts are Monogram Michelin TRX and rears are the standard-size Monogram Goodyear GT Radial. Wheels in the Touring have separate knockoffs too.
  2. Not 100% sure, but I think Round 2 included these slicks without tampo detailing in the "regular" box reissue of the Double Dragster. The one in the old-school cardboard box, not the version packed in the tin.
  3. Wheel ID Help Too!

    Think these are the wheels from the 1980s-era revision of the Monogram '39 Chevy coupe. Most of them were black with flames on the box, but there was a 1990s "Deluxe Kit" issue with paint and glue that was molded in yellow.
  4. Wheel I.D. Help, Please

    Don't have a kit to check, but think this is a rear wheel from the Revell 1968 Firebird.
  5. Halibrand Wheel Project

    These were in early issues of AMT's Trophy Series '57 Chevy. Original issue and 1967-issue "The Gasser" for sure.
  6. Halibrand Wheel Project

    The top ones are from AMT's Cobra kit. The bottom ones (closest to camera) are AMT Parts pack pieces.
  7. 1/25 AMT 1969 Olds W-30 442

    Also a fan of AMT's 1967 style.
  8. Grab those bargains off those racks... (HL sale)

    Found a Revell 2013 Boss 302 for $6.75 today. Only other kit I saw on clearance was the AMT fire truck...left that for someone else.
  9. 1/25 AMT 1969 Olds W-30 442

    AMT's 1969 annual box style is one of my favorites. Will have to add one of these to my collection.....
  10. 1/25 AMT '40 Ford Sedan

    Glad to see they are using this box. The hood scoop hasn't been in any of the "recent" reissues of this kit, but think it's largely the same otherwise.
  11. The flyer says the bonus redline tires are solid. I assume these are the old AMT Goodyears that were new when they were included in the original Polyglas Gasser kit.
  12. AMT's original Polyglas Gasser was a very short-lived reissue from 1969.
  13. AMT likely had a mold for Sting Ray coupes and a second for the convertibles. If you look at pictures Casey posted above you can see parts distributed differently on the trees (for example, check out the locations of the stock hood and the firewall ) which is a good clue that they were made in different molds.
  14. Thanks. Looked at it closer last night, and I think you're right that the peanuts have embedded themselves into the paint. Haven't tried any of Snake's ideas yet, but I'm not too optimistic.
  15. Thanks for the ideas. Will report back once I have a chance to experiment a bit.
