Help.

I'm currently building two cars and struggling to find suitable wheels/inserts/tryes.

First - Triumph Dolomite Sprint - Alloys.


Second - Morris Minor - steel pressed?


Any help much appreciated - thanks in advance

Would SCX Mk2 Escort tyres be the right size for the Dolly, if try RS Slots for wheels, I think that's where the ones on my MGB came from.

I've got alloy wheels on my MGB with SCX Escort tyres, I bought them off Pete Shepherd (scudbong on SF) and I think he gets them from Colin at RS Slots, but you'll need inserts.

For the Dolomite the wheels would be similar to the Stag and Traffic Models do complete kits with wheels so they may be able to help.
There is a picture of a complete Stag kit on Pendles resin car page.

Hi Jexy, where did you get your Dolomite body ? I'm looking for one, for a gift to a friend who owns a 1:1 green Sprint, but can't find one.

OneThirtySecond had one but ceased activity....could you help me ?

Regards from France.

OneThirtySecond was were i bought mine (years ago) and as you say they no longer make them.

Sorry can't help more than that - i checked on Pendle's site (who i think bought all the old stock) and they don't list them.

Hi Gareth,

Have a SCX Fiat 124? The wheels look a bit like the Triumph ones, if you painted them black (mine are all silver) then picked out the 'spokes' with silver paint using a small brush.

Regards, Alan
