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.

F1M Archive

In my continuing efforts to improve F1M.com, I will be closing down archive.f1m.com at the end of June.

If there is any content that you want to keep, you'll need to download it before then.  About the only thing that remains in the archive that has not been migrated are the Gallery images.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Nitto 1/12 Lancia Stratos build WIP

This will be my first build post on F1M.

I brought a built and tatty Nitto Stratos kit a while back from Ebay. When it arrived it had been poorly packed and all 4 suspension units where broken.

I took it apart and have started to think how to get it back again!

I did not think about photos as I did not think about this WIP, so I will take some and add them shortly.

In the meantime, does anyone know if there are any replacement decals available? I was thinking of doing the earlier green and white Alitalia livery or the Marlboro one?
