The wheels are looking marvelous. The close up of the Monza wheel is very impressive.
Cannot remember if I ever posted a picture of my completed Monza, but here it is.
It is not exactly accurate, but better than most. A close look will show that it is in fact cross laced and a fair 'representation' of the original. This winters' wheel project will be a few new types together with more 'etches to play with'. The wheel above uses spokes intended for experimentation from the first fret I had done.
I completed my 166MM a while back. Not sure it ever raced in the light blue livery, but I just liked the idea of painting it so. I may build another one in the more accurate yellow colours of Yvonne Simons car from the 1950 Le Mans race.

The last of the trio is the Monza, relegated to the loft as 'not yet wanted', and calling me continuously.
