More mock ups, i check everything still fits together reguarly, best not to find any problems later....
Still not definately set on these wheels, rears are fine but the front are just a tad too big i think ? Looking for quite an open style of wheel as i have p/e disc brakes for it.. Engine was progressing, but i thought I`d de-chrome the valve covers, carbs etc. They have been soaking in bleach for 4 days now and they are just starting to clear, Revell certainly chrome these things thick ! Nearly 1 month in and this is it so far, once wheels are decided i can play around and SLAM it !
More engine updates soon, at least the headers are fitted and luckily still clear the engine bay alright ! ( panic attack there ! )
Ill have a look through what ive got mate, I have a wagon rod wheels set that might fit, Been a while since i looked at them but i think they were big n little halibrand style. Its a pity aoshima only do each wheel style in one size cos some of them might have worked for you.
Yes I looked through Hiroboys list of wheels, saw half a dozen i loved but all are 1 size...
Have you tried hlj or 1999? both are in japan but you can get 2 sets of wheels for the price of one. Ive got some big n little rims from hobby design but they would be way too big. This is them on a 1/24 revell cuda and i used them on the madmax mustang too.
I dont think theyd work on 1/25 unless your building a jada style cuda
I forgot to mention ucsp, they do a lot of different wheels. They say their 1/24 but compared to the aoshima rims they seem undersize so should do for 1/25. Most are available in different sizes too so if you contact dimitry he might do a mixed set for you. they have their own shop and are on ebay. Shipping takes around a month though but they are very nice wheels and tyres, up there with hobby design in quality but better tyres

mustang1989: My wife is currently out of work as a nurse in an elective surgery clinic. She wants to go to work in a hospital and that scares the crap out of me because we've almost lost her twice. Once to a miscarraige and the second time due to a brain aneurysm.
