      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Any resin versions of Monogram's Goodyear Sports Car Specials?

If memory serves, Monogram made these in two different sizes and used them on actual race car models (Owens Corning 'Vettes) as well as for big & little tire combos for some of their street rods.

Just curious if anyone is offering them in resin. If you have a pic of the sidewall, that would be extremely helpful.

I don't think anyone has offered them in resin, as they are still pretty easy to find, especially if you prefer the "washed" sidewall versions in the Revell '32 Ford 5-window and Sedan kits. Pics of the earlier version with lettering here:

I think Modelhaus and/or Rep & Min Co of MD offer them with whitewalls. You can just paint the sidewalls and use vintage racing tire decals to put on the side markings.

I've got some Modelhaus #T190 which are an exact copy of the 32 Ford tires. They come with resin whitewall inserts and have the lettering of the original.
