Who Knew That the MPC '84 GMC Deserter kit's tires would fit an ERTL Paystar 5000 well???


Recommended Posts

I never use the tires from the Ex-Fall guy truck AKA the Deserter, because of the size always looked off to me on the pickup. Well those Desert dog tires do work good for the front wheels on an Ertl/AMT Paystar 5000! They just slide on as if they were made for the truck! This means that they more than likely will work on most AMT truck kit's as well.

I put them on a Boondocker Blazer as a kid. Sorry, no pictures. They are technically 1/20. So you will need the right size wheels to go with them. Hear I used Casey's 5 slots with them.

Thanks  Alan and Mike!

This is an old Monogram Kit painted with dupli color Bahama blue. 20200427_163648.thumb.jpg.7436b24d9be5984bce020e95fec4c284.jpg 

 

I have that kit in my stash, I think I may do the tire upgrade when I get to build it. Those tires look much better on the Jeep than the kit tires.
