Thanks for publishing my review. I may have been a bit harsh but this was one subject I wanted a lot myself. It's sad then to see that you'll have to deck the thing out with aftermarket just to be acceptable. Thanks for the links to the Azimut stuff. That looks great. I've done some browsing for pictures and I might give it a go out-of-box with minor adaptations. Too bad about those tyres though... I may try to give them some 'air' by loading them with wire to act like a spring.
Good review Rob. I too, have the kit, but I picked up one of the Azimut conversions for it, #35199, came with resin tires and wheels, so you can have my kit ones if you want them. Just PM me your address, and I'll pop them in the mail.

Thanks for the kind words and the offer. But I'll work with the tyres and I need to cover one wheel anyway (the spare). So the wheel with the moulding error will not be visible. And with the Italian postal service as it is, I wouldn't ask anyone to send me anything anyway...
