It seems that I can only find rubber tires for the F103 from HK. but their shipping takes about 2 or 3 weeks and I just would like to try them before that

Any help will be apreciated!

The good stuff is called Bestine, and can be found at any Art Supply store.
Do not use lacquer thinner, you will screw up the body.

anything you paint on will be too thick. you may want to consider airbrushing it...

Just want to throw this out there, if there are any F1 racers or people interested in F1 from the Wisconsin area that want to come race or spectate, Hobbytown USA in Oshkosh has formed an F1 class and has been racing for a few weeks with a nice steady turnout. Last Saturday we had half a dozen cars, with more in the works. So far on the track we've had F10's, F103's, F104's, and F201's. Carpet track/rubber tires. We race saturdays at 1:00, registration ends at 12:30. There is a set of rules in the works but for now its more "run what you brung." We also race stock sedan, vintage trans am, and mini's/cup racers.

I am not affiliated with the store, just wanted to spread the word.

Jeff

does anyone know of any product i can use on the decals to restore its adhesive grip?


thanks in advance
Have you tried heating the decal with a hairdrier? (ask first), and put light pressure on while it cools, not too hot, at first.
