Response to Dragon LRDG Chevrolet tires/wheels

Hi Vic,

I find what you are saying amazing, at first I thought it was a retrograde step to the cheap kits of the 60's and 70's which had similar tyres. I then thought that it may be due to the increasing price of the raw material and an effort to cut costs and optimise profits. Whichever it is it is a bit of a blow and if all the future kits are going to be similarly treated with regard to wheels, or other 'solid' items, then it is going to make our modelling experience a little less enjoyable. I have no doubt there will be some after-market resin wheels produced, but then that jacks the cost of a small kit up to a prohibitive level in these days of limited funds. Perhaps someone from Dragon could explain the reasoning and if it is a trend that will be continued.

Good luck with your build, I hope you post your progress for us all to see.

All the best,
