    Built this car , a Honda S2000, one evening this week.
    Car can be built as a hardtop or convertible, both parts provided.

    Simple kit , with flat integral tires. Blech. Check the photos.
    I made my own scale 3 dimensional tires and a couple
    card tube axles and mini slab frame . Looks much
    cooler with tires that actually have width.

    and made these fine little mag wheels and tires from scratch.

    Wheel file

    I have posted the pdf with my wheels to the parts bin, I am guessing they want to scan it before making it available.
    Check it out. They can be scaled up or down as required.
    All edge glued, tabs are lame on tires : )

    'They' love the tires! Nice job on them Butch. Thanks for the contribution :)

    Yeah..I have to make sure things are kosher before they get released from here. Keeps it safe for everyone and covers my butt.

    "All edge glued, tabs are lame on tires"

    When I designed my Flintstone models, I played around with different ways of doing the wheels on them. After trying a variety of ways, I settled on tabless edges with the face plate glued directly to the edge. Looked much more realistic with the circular shape retained. I kept threatening myself with designing a set of tires to use on Volker's vehicles...guess I won't have to now. Thanks!
