I use the 7mm "Mod Mueller" at my Peresvet and some GC trucks.

Wrong...
According to the Versers, the 36in and 33in GCR wheelsets were contracted through a US importer, and produced in Korea.

What ever happened to Fox Valley Models' promised production of TT wheels over a year ago (or was it even longer?)? They list TT wheels on their website, but it is not actually a "live" link, click on it and nothing happens...

"I've got some of the Fox Valley Models wheels to use when I modified HOn3 archbars."

What size axles do they come with? Are they 33 inch wheels? Are they made to fit any specific TT scale trucks? ...DaveB

If FV made 36" wheels I would buy a TON of them. Already bought a few 33" but they have limited use on the models I have.

"Here's a few pictures for comparison."

Bernd, Thanks for the photos. The fox valley wheels look great,as small or smaller flanges than HP wheels. I think Fox valley could sell a lot of them if they maintain them in stock. I've used their N scale wheels for years and find they make a big improvement in looks( btw, they do make 36 inch wheels for N scale)....DaveB

Zeuke-TT is the contractee (similiar like SAZ-Model with the switchers) and MTB the producer. It is sold under the name Zeuke-TT.
