|Oh! Look what the postman brought me. Lots of wheels!|
My brother has been busy with his resin experiments again and he sent me a lovely batch of truck wheels. I couldn't resist trying these out on my Chevy, so it was off with the old wheels and on with the new ones...
Had I been a little more careful I could have retained the original wheels, but inevitably I nicked them while I was using the Dremmel to cut away the excess resin attached to the underneath of the chassis. Adding these new resin wheels solves this problem which I would have had to otherwise repair using Milliput putty. It would have been do-able, but having the new wheels just seemed to be too good an opportunity to pass up.
I'm really pleased with my brother's wheels and they add to the effect I am trying to achieve - turning a solid one-piece model into one that looks a bit more like a multi-part kits so it blends in with the rest of my multi-part kits.
