A little update,the rear slicks in kit form are to small for the micro nitro wheels so i ordered a set...to big mm1 so i decide to make my own,The one on the left is the big one i made the middle one and the right is the kit tire.

I made the master from resin,it has since been machined to fit the wheel,the final tire will be done in rubber :)))

Superb in every way. I dig the artwork. Who is printing your decals? I looks like it may include some gold tones.
Keep on buildin'

I'm envious! Decals are a constant and important part of my build style and I recently realized how useful it would be to have a means to print white and metallic. Can't wait to see the engine turned effect on the decals.
Keep on buildin'

Definitely going to be an exciting build. I have one big scale 1/12 (?) '57 Chevy that I have collected some parts for. Just noticed the POW/MIA decal on the Problem Child sheet; as a veteran, thank you for remembering. afs
I build models because GOD allows me to and because I can't afford the real thing!!
