I'm thrilled this is coming out....but is it just me or are those tyres sporting some strange grooves in the sidewall and the lettering in completely the wrong place....?

Maybe when the tyres are fitted to the rims it will look more accurate. Still getting one anyway.

Not to nitpick but there is no "u" in Peterbilt.

Not nitpicking at all, check out my sig line! :lol:

tires look spot on,to me!

The grooves looks a little exaggerated but they look better than the old tires wich had totally smooth sidewalls except for the lettering.
The Bandag tires were retreads and how the sidewalls looks could depend on what core they used, I have seen several different versions for the Malone race trucks, he must have gone through many sets of tires over the years and they were most likely different from set to set. 

I miss one script on the decal sheet tho', I can't find the "Tyrone Malone Mr D.D.D." for the rear face of the small duck tail spoiler on the rear body work anywhere.

But I can't wait for the kit to come out.

I can't find the mid May info on their site. I only posted what was on the Facebook page. I've got plenty in the bench anyway. Will get it as soon as I can.

I don't fell sorry. They've over priced junk at times. Probably not a bad idea as an investment in some ways, but there is a couple of super bosses on eBay for over $200 AUD, decals no good, body work ruined on one of them.

Precisely....I'm with you......I meant that mostly out of sarcasm.....They've been getting away with that  kind of thing for too long.....I like to have extra kits for trade fodder, myself, but ebay prices are ridiculous, for sure..... :huh: Just like the Ford Louisville race car hauler, these reissues will all but shut tha kind of stuff, at least for these particular kits, down...... :D
