    thanks man,Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland cast some really nice Halibrands that fit the Black Widow soft tires.I had a set that I didn't use when I built the kit so they are already mounted on the Halibrands and I bought another kit from ebay and would like at least another 2 sets so then I can order 3 more sets of rims.Pretty cool wheels that will look good on Revells Highboy kit or Roadster.

    Some good looking builds going on...... I acquired all these a while back ..was just going through them and trying to put them in some form of order....or I could use them to wall paper my hobby room that I am working on....?
    I saw something about the" Black Widow " I may have some parts from that kit.... I will look through some stuff see what I can find....

    Thank you for the offer - that sounds like great fun! Unfortunately family commitments will have me tied up. Maybe another time if you meet regularly?

    thanks for looking out but I was referring to the Black Widow from Monogram that was re-issued with rubber tires and not the plastic ones.Again,I appreciate the effort.

    your welcome,maybe next time.We get together every 2 months and the members are from the Central Illinois area,so we designated the hobby shop we meet as the place to go as it's a central location for the members.I'll let ya know when the next one will be and we'll go from there.

    No problem..... I don't even know what them tires and wheels are from...the directions came with all of them others that I posted... you said the ones that your looking for are soft pliable rubber...the one's that I posted came from my , one of my, large tubs of just tires....and if this is not soft and pliable rubber....wow..any ways was just curious....my brother sets up and puts on estate sales and deals in old stuff ...so he runs across alot of stuff ..models , die-cast, old toys etc....and I usually end up with it...one room in my house is full of tubs and box's full just old toys ,models, die-cast, hot wheels on and on some I haven't even gone through yet..... I ,just got a couple more slot car tracks complete one appears to be never used...that makes 10or 12 sets now..they are just old Eldon sets but price was right..the plan is to combine them into a large Pike's Peak hill climb sort of set up in one of my other rooms....sorry for rambling....good luck on your search....

    I like building HAMB-friendly models of customs that are a bit wacky. The original car is easily seen but there are one or more major mods that other builders usually don't do.
    IMG_3387-3390-3392-3399sm.jpg
    Here's a '60 Ford three-wheeler from a couple of years ago.

    IMG_1687sm2.jpg
    Currently I'm working on this custom rod as if it was commissioned by Pontiac in 1961. The much-modified body is from a Club De Mer concept from the mid '50s. It's on a Z'd 1961 Ventura chassis with a 389 and 3-2s.

    IMG_1754sm.jpg
    Here's a rough mockup of my next one: a '66 Riviera. The body is narrowed but the suspension and fenders remain at their stock width. The fenders will be finished to mimic older cars with separate fenders as they were in the '30s.
