So What's Up on

So folks might have noticed that some things have changed recently, mostly on the non-Forum section of F1M.

I've updated the software that runs that portion of the site.  Its was going to need to happen at some point, and I will also need to do another update but I can wait on that.  I removed some of the old content, things like the Hobby Shop list, updated other content, like the F1 Kit Database, and created a new feature, the Resources.  F1M members can add or update information in these sections, its moderated so I'll need to give it a check before the changes appear.

Forum News

The F1M Forums - - and F1M - - are now completely seperate web sites.  Logging into one will not log you into the other. If you cannot log into the F1M Forums, go to to change your password for that site only.  Changing your password here will not affect your Forum account.

Also, I have disabled account creation on the F1M Forums for the moment while I work on bugs.

I might update this article with more information as things change or I find other items that need to be communicated.

Help with Ferrari 641/2

Help!  I've dug out an old Tamiya 641/2 to build whilst locked down.  The kit and the decals etc are all perfect but the tyres seem to have broken down, the rubber has gone all misshaped and hard.

Does anybody out there happen to know if there are tyres available as a grade up part or have a set they don't need? I've searched the web and can't find any anywhere.
