a trial on real wire spokes

Kit / Model  

BMW R 80 GS

Manufacturer  

Tamiya

Item Code  

14056

Scale  

1/12

Description  

This were my first hand made spokes - based on a technique learned from a modelersite.com pdf note. To further improve the spokes one had to either keep the slightly thicker part where the spokes are mounted to the rim or represent this otherwise, but I failed to do so. I also fiddeled around with some of the old and fragile decals, you may see this in pic #1. I did not use my usual gloss coat on the GS, as I thimk that most parts of the original are made of colored plastics.
