I am on the prowl for 1/25th scale Corvette style Rally wheels. I'm building the Revell '77 Monte Carlo to look like mine. I dug out an bench seat from an old model to use in place of the buckets/console. I would really love to find some Rally wheels for it. Oh, and they have to be the metal axle type.

Thanks.

its been a good 15 years since i build anything, and hardly ever used the rims that came with. but aren't the white pieces the back hub that connects to the metal axles?


Or if the hole is too big, or trying to convert it to accept the metal axles. What I used to do is go to the hobby shop and try to find some plastic tubing that slips on the metal rods and slips into the back hub. try to get as close as possible, u might need to use 2 different sizes of tubing or shave the inside with an x acto knife to make them slip in. super glue them and sand them if u want and paint. u can make the has small or big as u need them.

Hope it makes since, if not PM me and i'll dig out some parts from my old parts box and snap some pics to show u.

Lol at rago and my last post. I was talking about those ebay rims that was posted. If the holes on the backof the rims are too big, then u can reduce them by using plastic tubing to make it so it accepts the metal axle.
