the crossbars were somewhat available..... one of the guys over on Layitlow model forums had picked some up, without tires..... apparently the hold up is tires, and fitment issues

id take a couple cases of the supremes (soverigns) , right now!

Yes they were at the Pegasus booth last year. And they told me they would out early in the year. Same thing with the AutoWorld/AMT stuff. The Opel GT was displayed last year as well along with a couple of others yet to be released.

They probably can't call them Astros.

You say that like it's a bad thing! :huh:

These need to hit the shelves. I have more kits than I could ever build in my lifetime, but I have to dig deep through the stash every time a new project hits the bench for the right wheels & tires. These would fix that problem for at least a third of them.

Someone on the Coffin Corner mentioned that a few of the crossbars had been sold, but that there "waiting" on a boat from China to deliver the goods.

Look more like 14 or 15 inch, which makes sense for late '50s-early 60s style they appear to be...(19 inch whitewalls???)

14's and 15's rock! That's one of my biggest issues with the majority of the aftermarket wheels and recent kit options...they're too dang big. B)

They are beautiful. I have wanted these for this build since I started the build over a year ago. FINALLY!!

I love them and will be getting many more sets. My buddy also has the Astro Supremes and the Chrome reverse wheel sets. I see many more in my future.

Later-
