    AMT Polyglas GT Parts pack tires & Tires in AMT 66 Mustang kit?
    Hi all, Im wondering if the Pad Printed F60-15 & L60-15 Polyglas GT tires in the AMT Polyglas Parts Pack like this -

    Are they the exact same tires which are in the AMT 1966 Mustang Hardtop reissue kit - 

    And also the L60-15 Polyglas tires in the new AMY 1968 Plymouth Road Runner reissue kits -

    Or are the parts pack tires better quality? Im building a few Stock 68/69 Chargers & these newer Pad Printed Polyglas tires look to be the best? Just a bit confusing if they are all basically the same tire in these new reissue kits?

    Tires for Mad Max Interceptor?
    Hi all, Ive got a pair of Aoshima Mad Max Road Warrior kits & am going to start building them. One as the Mad Max 1 Interceptor from the first movie, I have the resin conversion kit. The other Interceptor out of the box for the Mad Max 2 Road Warrior. I was looking at the tires & am wondering how accurate they are? They look way to modern. Here they are -

     I know the tires are BF Goodrich Radial TA but what is the tread Pattern like? Fireball Modelworks have some BF Goodrich Radial TA but Im wondering if they may be to late as well. Here is the tread Pattern like Fireball have -

     
    I did some research & wonder if the tread pattern should look like these vintage BFG Radial TA -

    Anyway is there any Mad Max experts that can help. Also where the tires can be purchased in 1/24. If I can find the correct tires Ill use them. Cheers!

    Thanks for your help. Also thanks for adding photo. I think I'll have a go at making some similar wheels. Obviously like you said without the site wheels on the inside. 
    Its a shame both the wheels and headlights are not available as it would give the early model builders more building options

    Early Ford Wire Wheel Covers?
    Hi, Im wondering if some wire wheel covers for early Fords are available in any kit or from an aftermarket resin source in 1/25 scale. I have included an example of what I mean. The photo I have attached is from Jesse James 32 Roadster which is actually on ebay if you have some spare cash lying around
    Also are any E&J Headlights available anywhere. They are pretty cool as well, also on Jesse James's Roadster.
    Thanks for your help

    Hi mr obsessive, so yours is doing the same to? Least I'm not the only one. I hope there's a fix for this soon. 
  14. mopargreg added a post in a topic New Site/Forum Look   

    I upgraded the software to the latest on my iPhone 6 the other day. Since then while viewing the forum the forum display is only shown on one side of the screen, not over the whole width of the screen. When looking at the screen its displaying on the left side only. The right side is blank white with nothing on it.
    Its a shame as I liked the new look on my phone but now it doesn't work as my display is only half the screen now unless I zoom in. What's strange as the adverts fill the entire width of the screen.
    This forum is the only one I'm having issues with. Any ideas?

    Casting small parts - help
    Hi everyone, I'm interested in casting a few small parts for my own use in resin.  I don't want use any pressure pots to draw out air bubbles etc. I just want to keep it simple without any setup costs. Can anyone recommend the best product to use for this and the final product won't be full of air bubbles. 
    I read a while ago on the forum someone cast small parts in epoxy. Any ideas on this? 
    I'm no stranger to casting as I have cast my own urethane tires in the past for slotcar racing. Using smooth on silicone for the molds and smooth on urethane for the tires.
