  1. Hi Jürgen, If it can help everybody, you in particular, I did buy a few years ago a resin W196 stromlinenwagen 1/24 body, a very crude one in fact made probabily by Resilient Resins, for sure made for slot racing purposes, as the wheel arches had to be "dremelled" to fit any rolling chassis, wich I am "tayloring" to sit on a Revell 300 SLR, so that is why I bumped in your thread about your wire wheeling metod that makes us breathless! After this, only UTOPIA... the back to front crossed wire wheels, such as the 250 LM ferrari ones... I will try to post a few photos of my stromlinienwagen soon...
  2. Well, thank you all three friends specially Art, as his method seems to be "the best solution" for now...I had been thinking for a while on using that teflon tape used on plumbing, but as it does not glue on the wheel, probably when puting the tyre it would sleep and uncover the plastic again...(would it glue to plastic with white glue?) Steven, you are a lucky guy! Well, you probably make only american made kits, and probably tyre and kit materials do "combine" with each other; Till now with me it hapenned with ESCI (Italian made) and with REVELL (Germany)... Thank you all for now
  3. It is the second time I found that the tyre I did put on its wheel to see how it matched with when I first opened the kit box ( ESCI Porsche 934, and REVELL Jaguar XKSS), when I opened it again to start the building a few years later, a nasty chemical reaction did hapen, melting the plastic of the wheel, which remains soft for ever...
