20mm Egyptian chariots wheel conversion kit NOT AVAILABLE!

This is a wheels conversion kit for Atlantic/Nexus 1/72 plastic Egyptian Chariots.
Anyone who is familiar with this set knows the main issue with these models are the wheels, not only they're way too chubby, they're also way undersized.
In the top picture here you can see the plastic chariot assembled as it comes out of the box, with the original tiny fat wheels... :)
The black and white picture below shows a real Egyptian chariot recovered from the tomb of Amenophis III for comparison. As you can see the cab here is open, unlike the one in the model, but the overall shape and size is quite accurate. One can always assume that in battle the wooden frame could have been covered with a leather screen for extra protection...
Under it you can see the converted chariots with the new metal wheels on.
The bottom picture shows an example of the complete chariot converted with our kit, painted and based.
As you can see here I've also attached the axle to the back of the chariot, where it should be, and not in the middle of the cab where the locating pins are. You can do this simply by removing the pins provided at the bottom of the cab and gluing it in the right position. In any case the wheels will work just fine even if you want to leave the axle where it is.
Please note: This kit includes the wheels only!
You'll still have to buy the models yourself separately from a retailer of Nexus, the item code is ATL002 and you can see a scan of the sprue on their own website at http://www.nexusgames.com/atlantic/image_catalog.html
This kit include six (6) wheels, enough to convert three chariots. You'll need two packs to convert all six chariots you get in one Nexus box.

Code: 20ATL1

Temporarily discontinued

At least we hope it will be only temporary...
The master for this item has been damaged beyond repair and the last mold has ended its useful life. What that means is that we're no longer able to produce this item unless we make a new master. Unfortunately making new masters is expensive and the sale figures for this kit at the moment don't justify the investment. However we would like to leave all possibilities open, so here is the deal: if you want to be able to purchase this item press the button below and pre-order it now. You'll be charged ten pence and NO PRODUCT will be shipped to you. The small fee is just to prove you are serious about the purchase. As soon as we have pre-orders for 100 kits, which is break even point, we will remaster the wheels, put them back in production and contact everyone who has made a pre-order to notify when the item is again available. Your ten pence will be of course discounted off your actual purchase and will also entitle you to a 20% discount on your order for this item. This offer will remain open for approximately one year, after which if there have not been enough pre-orders the item will be permanently discontinued and all pre-orders fee paid to date entirely refunded.

While we're at it we've added a button also for the Airfix chariot conversion kit, still in development stage and currently frozen for lack of appealing sale figures... same deal apply, pre-order 100 and we will put it into catalogue!
