Is there a good aftermarket Nardi steering wheel?

Recommended Posts

I can't find an aftermarket source for a good Nardi steering wheel. Any ideas?

There’s a company from the Ukraine that makes them in resin and they make very nice parts. You can find them on eBay from time to time. Off the top of my head I think it’s called USCP

Thanks for those sources, guys. Actually, I found a source on eBay and just got in a pair of them. They're from 3D Scale Parts and look good. As soon as I paint one I'll post some photos.

So here are the Nardi steering wheels from 3D Scale Parts that I got on eBay - 2 for $12.00 w/ free shipping.

The two piece rim is kind of odd and I don't know why it's made that way. Gluing the two pieces together leaves a visible seam that needs to be filled and sanded for best appearance. Here's before and after filling.

It would be better if it could be one piece but this turned out to be not much trouble. Anyway, here it is done and painted.

So it comes out looking pretty good but there are probably better ones out there somewhere - including the one that Matt Bacon suggested with a real wood rim from France - but at least this one can be had on this side of the pond.

That is a good looking wheel and no two piece rim! Noted for the future.
