      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

Mud Tires?

6 posts in this topic

Posted

I wanna take the R-M snow plow 4X4 GMC and make a good ol' southern mudder from it. Where could I get Super Swampers or Ground Hawgs from? I see that BNL Resins has the boggers, just limited source. Where else can these be had? Seen them on eBay, just not gonna spend $40 a set!

The Ground Hawgs used to be available in a corrected version (sidewall lettering on BOTH sides, directional tread) from Arrowhead Aluminum, but no longer :(

Sure wish someone would redo the old kit tires & offer them in resin and/or rubber again! B)

Check the toy aisle at a Dollar store, Target or Wal Mart. Many times they have some simple trucks with nice mud tires that work great on models.

There are some kits out there that came with mud tires but they are out of production and can get pricey on eBay or at swap meets. Keep your eyes open, sometimes a builder comes up cheap on eBay.
