Do the PE parts come with the kit?

No I mis spoke.  They are just standard styrene.
I just finished painting the tires. I went with Panzer Aces Dark Rubber and dry brushed whith Panzer Aces light rubber.

The tires are pretty sweet. I'm working on the wheels at the moment. Man, I love alclad II.

Wheels are done. I used Stainless Steel Alclad II over gloss black. If you look at it one way it looks steel. Move it, and it takes on a black tint. An unintended effect, but one that I like.

Just to clarify dkev,

This model kit doesn't come with the seat belts which you have added I believe. In this case your build will not qualify as
box stock and will be moved to the modified category.
If It's a model kit, I like it already.

That is incorrect. The seat belts DO come with this kit. They are just standard styrene. This is a BOX STOCK kit. Thanks.

As for the tires. Thanks dlots for you tip. However, after looking at several pictures of the Tumbler, it would appear that these tires are film accurate.
