Andi Little Steve I have no other pic's than these - Once you're at pic' 7 - it's about done .................. the rear rim is glued on and then the whole is just sprayed your chosen colour. In this instance I used an Auto' acrylic (Cream), this explains why it looks a bit goopy in some of the "finished shots". I have an airbrush now and this would add a lot of finesse to the project. The whole thing was completed with Car aerosol paints and some detail added with Humbrol enamels .... Real Oldschool, all hand tools and a household drill for a lathe so one must allow for this when standing in judgement. I kind of liked those days - before the internet was there to tell you that every decision you made was wrong or ludicrous ............ or perhaps that's just me?? (he says smiling).

@Andi... Thanks for the extra info, I guess you then trimmed the wire once glue dried.
It's a good method, I've built spoke wheels myself in the past, but never using the kits styrene originals...
So I was interested in how YOU finished these off. Many thanks :)

Christian Bruer Holy Moly this is a very nice modelmaking! The idea and implementation of the spoke wheels is great. Very well done!

Augie Good god.. what a damn good way :D

Spanjaard absolutely fantastic. is it fishing line or something else. does it hold the weight of the model without any problem?
I did something like that (less spokes for sure), for a 1/12 bike but i did use very thin steel wire, mostly to avoid painting it afterwards. that was maybe an overkill in regards to strength :P

Augie Wow those spokes are amazing!
