1/18th Scale Kubelwagon Ballon Tires are Ready For Ordering

Post by pickelhaube » Fri Mar 08, 2019 5:11 pm

Hey Guys,

The balloon tires are coming out great.
I just came back from the eye doctor and I am not feeling up to taking pics

I will be selling 4 tires and the spare .
I will supply them with new axels so you will not have to use the stock axels.

The stock tires will come off easy enough .
Just crab a tire in each hand and twist in the opposite direction.
One will come off and just slide the axel off.

I am thinking of painting them black and you can paint the hub yourself , or I can paint them for $5 more.

$30 for a full set of 5 tires with axels and I can ship in a padded envelope for $3.90

If interested plz contact me .

The balloon tires are coming out great !!
Most times you see them they are on a DAK kuble .
But most kubles were painted in country so the balloon tires would be right on a panzer painted kuble until they painted them.

There are many DAK colors to choose from so I have painted the hubs panzer gray and that is how I will sell them.
