Thanks Tex. Yes, I respoked the wheels about 20yrs ago and then put the kit aside - for a reason I can't exactly recall. :scratch: From memory I removed about 80% of the moulded spokes, then with the remaining 20% still holding the hub in place, I started drilling from the outside of the tyre through the wheel rim, and added wire spokes until I had enough support on the hub to remove the last of the plastic spokes, and then I added the final wire spokes to finish the job.

Another addition today.
Airfix 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf109G-6 (A02029A).
Depicting J-704 of the Swiss Flugwaffe. Built as a late entry for the 2017 Messerschmitt GB. Build thread here: viewtopic.php?f=603&t=51225
