Arii seem to do loads of 1:32 scale stuff nowadays, old 60’s things up to Skyline GT-R and the like. Liberate some wheels off one of them? Also check out www.hiroboy.com
I’m a sucker for the accessory wheels. Whether you want big diameter VIP-type wheels or period Street Fins, Work Equips or whatever chances are you’ll find them. They may do wheels in other scales, I’ve never investigated. Sometimes though it’s better value to buy a kit just for its wheels, once you’ve sussed what they are.
Had no time for the plastic stuff over the weekend as 1:1 cars and eBay sales took priority, should get more done again later this week.
Ha ha! They’re a really good seller, free carriage over £50 and a discount scheme too.
About the wheel fitment thing, I suspect the Tamiya 911 will be quite faithful with how they’ve modelled the suspension etc. Also, with Tamiya wheels they usually have at least one pair as a male fitting, ie. there is a pin either in the wheel or moulded to it which pushes into a rubber bush in the hub/brake assembly. Certainly how it is with the Tamiya Skyline GT-R, BMW 635 etc that I’ve built.
The accessory wheels are usually female fitting, so they need a pin or axle coming out from the car to push onto. My thought is that you could drill out the hub and push a pin or length of 2mm rod out from the back of that for the wheel to push onto – that’s what I did on the front of the R30 Skyline.
I imagine you could do similar to the back end?
What are you doing – putting a set of Hayashis onto the 911 then?...
