Special limited edition (set includes two spoke wheels, two black tires and two flattened resin tires with photo-etched parts).
Scale Spokes has just released new wheels in 1/48 scales for the Nieuport 28. These are extra special because, just like the actual aircraft's wheels, these have three sets of spokes. One set each from the inner and outer edges of the hub and also one set from the center of the hub. This is an unprecedented level of realism.
Scale Spokes offers hand-made, spoke wheels for the 1/48 Nieuport Ni-28, All these miniature works of art feature resin hubs, aluminum rims, copper wire spokes, and rubber tires. Depending on the package, each set includes two spoke wheels with two different sets of tires: either two black and two white tires, or two black and two flattened resin tires with photo-etched parts . These beautiful wheels are finished products by themselves, but you can still bring them even closer to reality with further artistic techniques such as chemical treatments and paint. Hope you enjoy these products and that you will share your experiences with us on our new ScaleSpokes forum.
Note with the Tip:
These wheels are fragile and changing the tires can cause damage to the hub and spokes if you are not careful. If you need to change the tires, please visit the TIPS section for advice on this procedure.
