I'd like to try them. OK Speedster, In the years 1977-1979 there were no extra wheel or axle sets were offer...

Re: Best placement for 3/8" lead wire weights

https://i.imgur.com/SoX8shY.png The car would be 1/2" thick at the rear and we are allowed to move the axle holes (that's another thing we'll offer at the workshop). This seems like the most advantageous compromise between aero and weight placement that I can come up with, but I thought I'd collect...

Re: 8 car boxed set's for Awana

As a kid in Awana's club
I never payed much attention to how the kits were un-boxed !
But that's been years back since I was in Awana's.. and that I can recall seeing the kits passed out in the plastic bags.


I placed an order for the 8 car box set to add to my collection and kit history display.
