    Excellent photos Mike - thank you!  Thanks John, I'll check it out.
    Purchased a set of Fireball Modelworks very nice 15" Minilites and received them today. Did a quick mockup.  I was concerned they might be too large for the 1:25 scale Revell kit but I think they will work.

    Welcome Marius.

    Very creative.

    I tried the wire core version and didn't care for it.  Your material sounds much more promising.

    Sorry Shay missed your question, as Bill stated its an oil cross over tube with (2) breather caps.

    I found this picture on Page 4.  No doubt there are more in the thread.

    Thanks for the suggestion Daniel.  Does the rod have a metal core?  I have some metal core styrene rod IIRC was made by Evergreen.

    If Fujimi offers them as just a wheel/tire set I have never seen them.  Wish they would though I would like to have a set myself.

    Buy extra and practice.
    I use solid rod Shay in lieu of hollow tubing.  I bend the rod either with my fingers or round needle nose pliers.  Once I am happy with the shape I heat the bent area over a candle flame to relieve stress in the material and set the curve.

    The Triumph Dolomite is certainly rare particularly in the US.
