I still might try and dull coat the wheels to get them to look more like the real deal.

Nice job Roger, another thing you might want to try to tone down the wheels (if you plan on leaving them on the model) is a paint called Polly Scale (a railroad paint). They have bottle clears in gloss, satin and flat. They are water based and flow out super well (no brush streaks) and have a long work time not usually know with water based paints. I use this paint (night black and grey tones) alot for undersides of funny car bodies, undersides of dragster panels etc. I really love the stuff!

Looks great as usual Roger! And I will echo what Charlie said about the Pollyscale paint. I used to use a lot of it in my airplane models. The trouble is, it was originally from Floquil but was taken over by Testors and they have now discontinued it so whatever is left over is it. The Vallejo brand of paints is a good and comparable alternative though...
