...I guess many of us would be more than grateful if someone at the above mentioned companies would take care of the (1/24) F12 Novitec tires/rims production...

Maybe Hobby design will come out with a trans kit for this one.

They already have some Novitec wheels and trans kits in their range.

Nah...I'll pass on a HD transkit thanks.

But I would love a set of the rims only from any of the above mentioned companys.

BTW... These look very similar to the optional Ferrari rims.

Stupid me, I was not informed about this news...! Seems to be perfect, at least the first molds...

Thanks Sasa :)


Edit: Sorry, I did not specified, but I meant 1/24, those seems to be the HD03-161 in 1/18...

Ups, sorry, my bad, I wasn't even looking, I know I saw those wheels, but never checked the scale, never the less, I am sure I saw something similar recently, again...maybe in different scale, I will check ;)

If they do, it will be ill-fitting and too small.

That would perfectly describe the two HD trans kits I've purchased.

They do make a range of product unavailable elsewhere and we can only hope they eventually sort their resin issues out.

Got this morning from Hobbyeasy the ordered HD Novitec rims and wanted share with you, here a quick mock-up

And this is how they look just out of the box:

http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a163/RJ1108/Various/Novit1_zps9b4322b9.jpg

They are perfectly round, with a good definition and generally clean, some extra care needs to be addressed to the back side of the spokes.

Front rims – dia. 24.4 mm; width 11.8 mm
Rear rims – dia. 25.4 mm; width 14.0 mm

(Real wheels dimensions – 255/30 R21 + 335/25 R22)

Aoshima 20” wide&narrow tires fit the HD rims but they are strongly stretched on…

I was not so confident in this coming item, instead this is one of the most clean and accurate set of rims I’ve ever seen from Hobby Design. My formal thanks go to them.

Wow I'm glad to see they are doing better with their casting. Now put a lip on those and you will be golden ;)

Hobby Design also do a set of tyres for these rims HD03-0213, they fit perfectly and the quality is very good
