Parelli Tire.jpg (25309 bytes)For those interested, there's a place where you can get tires and tubes for the smaller Worksman wheels that have almost NO tread and look "kinda" authentic. Dick Lemons already has them on his plane. The photo at the right is the new tire compared with one of his old "bike" tires.

http://www.tiresunlimited.com/
They are the "Pirelli ML75 Moped - 2.75-16" and the tube is the "Motorcycle Tubes - 250/275-16." The tires are $22.53 each and the tubes are $5.25 each.

You can see the tire at:

The Tubes page is:

We've already got 4 more ordered for the rest of our planes. I'm already using some 2.25 X 16 motorcycle/moped tires on my bird but I think I'm going to like the 2.75s even more.

The Ultimate Nieuport Accessory 
by Chris Cattermole from New Zealand.

A Nieuport 11 clock. 
They are made from a 3mm aluminum plate with a clock mechanism bonded to the back and measure 40cm (16") x 19cm (7.5").  Each one is hand-finished. These can be finished in any paint scheme you care to envisage. If you send in a "good" photo of your plane with your order, your markings can be scanned and laser printed onto transfers which in turn go onto the "fuselage."  The clock shown above is in the colors of Keith Caldwell who was an New Zealand Ace who shot down 25 aircraft during WW1.
Price:  NZ$ 85.00 (which works out to US$ 55.00). Plus freight. You can contact Chris at:
