Hello all, I have a resin-cast tire which was obviously cast from some vinyl model tire. I would like to know which model the original vinyl tire came from.
Here are the details: Outside Dia. = 1.27" (32.3mm) Inside Dia. = 0.85" (21.5mm) Width (at the widest point) = 0.28" (7.2mm) Approx. tread width = 0.21" (5.3mm)
Sidewall detail has a ridge around the mid-point and a "DUNLOP RACING" script (on both sides). Thin letters with seriff type. The letters are placed on the inside half of the sidewall - below the midpoint ridge).
Thread detail is more or less a staggered rectangular pattern (with sort of a "cross" in it) and it extends onto the sidewall (half way down to the ridge).
It looks like a 1:25 or 1:24 tire. Maybe from a kit made by Italeri or ESCII or Revell AG? Or Heller?
If you can identify a kit this tire came from - let me know. TIA, Peteski
