    Fireball Modelworks!
    Just received my Fireball Modelworks tires, and white letter decals.
    WOW!  The mainstream manufacturers have never put out a tire that "looked" the right width and diameter that I have in the pics of my 1/1 cars.
    Joseph has NAILED it!
    Ordered the Mickey Thompson N-50's in both 1/24 and 1/25 to compare. Lined them up on a '67 Impala (had one) and a '61 Impala (had three of these, 1/1) and they are perfect! Capture that '70's/'80's look just right.
    Be ordering 4 more sets next week. Will experiment with shaving the raised M/T letters off, and applying Fireballs white letter decals to reflect the tires I had (Cooper Cobra, etc)
    If you haven't tried these out...you are missing out.

    Good start.
    I got my first one of these kits in '69 or '70. "Bonnie and Clyde" version (although they were killed in a '34) with bullet hole decals.
    This should be interesting.

    My "beef" with the Lindberg '61 (also the '53 Ford) was spotty, thin chrome plating.

    AMT '61 Impala? Round 2...
    Just surfing the website, and there is an AMT '61 Impala kit pictured.
    What gives?

    Tires?
    Is there any reliable sources for accurate sized tires that represent tires used on actual cars in the '70's?
    Say, 50 and 60 series? M-50's? N-50's? 60's ( Mickey Thompson)
    Seems that every Muscle Car kit today, has undersized tires.
    Thanks!

    Kool!
    It's refreshing to see such a nice Moper build...with a Wedge and not a Hemi.

    Awesome!
    The BMF alone would have cost me about 3 bottle of Jim Beam...

    Awesome build.
    I've probably done 7 or 8 of these over the years. NEVER used the stock parts on the engine.
    You got it right.
