As far as I am concerned, there is NOT an accurate set of those caps and trim rings in scale. If I were doing them, I would do them in 3 sizes, 1/25 (14 x 6 for the Maverick, 15 x 7 for the Mustangs and Torinos), and a set in 1/24 scale {14 X 7 and 15 x 7 for the Monogram '70 Mustang).

They probably would be a good seller.

Rickcaps55,

Thank You for the 'link' to Missinglink. Just received the Maverick/Torino dog dish hubcaps/trim rings. Absolutely perfect.

They are not plated, but I will paint them a brushed aluminum and BMF the trim rings.

Emailed several times with Kevin @ ML. Great business and communications. 

Thanks.

You guys aren't going to believe me, but the BEST looking dog dish/trim ring wheels I have EVER seen, that look 100% legit to my picky eyes, were from the PALMER '70 Mustang kit. Yes, Palmer. I seen them in a kit a friend of mine had, and could not believe my eyes.
