My good friend, master modeler, and all around nice guy, Curt Raitz, has gone into the aftermarket wire wheel business with his beautiful hand-laced wire wheels. For those of us who frequent the NNL West you may have seen examples of his work in recent years and many of us have been bugging him to make them generally available. Personally, I've been waiting forever for something like this!

These wheels are the real deal, with stainless wire spokes and machined aluminum rims and hubs. Hence the TruWire brand. The initial offering is for 1/24th & 1/25th scale applications and come in two diameters, .740" and .790", $25.00 USD plus shipping. They are designed to be compatible with most kit dragster motorcycle style front tires. Curt tells me he's also offering them in 1/16th scale for a slightly higher price.

I was able to test both sizes successfully with several different generally available FED kits in my stash (unfortunately I'm so Old Skool that rear-engined dragsters are total MIA on my shelves). In general I would say the .740" size is a straightforward fit for most applications. The .790 inchers might require that you do some minor sanding on older, hardened tires. They are gorgeous and I'm sure will take almost any model I use them on to a whole new level. They're ideal not only for the obvious dragster uses, but also for a knockout Fad-T, some vintage applications, and maybe even for motorcycles.

Curt can be reached at miniscurtraitzing, 686 Helen Dr., Hollister, CA 95023. Email is ceraitz@gmail.com.

I just got the new Tamiya Ford GT!  It was $48 which I thought was reasonable.  Can't wait to open it up tonight.

Littletimmy, On those early Model T's they only had one functioning door and it was on the passenger side, and the one on the drivers side was just a stamping on the body panel, not even a separate structure so there was no need for even fake hinges.

I picked these up , in a second hand store for $60.

 

All were sealed, except the 57 Chevy. It's missing the instruction's

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage.

   Soon to be on the bench...
