      I just scored a Lindberg Exterminator dragster from the bay of E. Are there any serious issues with the kit? Since it's an old mold, is there much flash Exterminator building problems? ?

    I think the only real problem with the Exterminator is visual. The rear wheels look a bit out of proportion to the slicks but even a box stock Exterminator building problems? rendition should still look pretty good. It'ss a good kit and goes together fairly well.

    That would definitely make it look less weird. If you can get the old style pie crust slicks from way back when or the Big T wheels and tires, the Exterminator will look great.

    Those old (1962-1963 vintage) Monogram pie crust slicks came in 2 flavors.... With or without the whitewalls. The ones without are somewhat rare I believe.

    I don't remember those wheels without the white walls. Have you seen them anywhere? Does anyone know how much they go for now? Which kit did they come in? You've got my interest peaked.

    I have a set of each laying around.... That's including the front 6.00 x 15.00 tires. I think the ones from the 1962 Big T kit are blackwall tires. Then sometime in 1963, they switched to whitewalls. You could switch the wheel halves around on the newer T kits and have the whitewalls on the inboard side. They look good either way.

    I had the '62 Big T - they were the source for the blackwall slicks & front tires

    That settles that question then. Looks like I missed the original 62 T. My large scale experience started with the Big Deuce and the white walls. For some reason, the 62 Big T was not available in my neighborhood and it was later when my dad finally let me go to some of the more famous hobby shops in NYC.
