Peter,Barry,

I show another technique.
A few brass lines are soldered and thin strut is made. The width of strut is adjusted by the number of brass lines.
Strut of the width of 3mm is made in 6 brass lines of 0.5mm.

I made the axle,tires and struts.
I bury tires' gaps with the Polyester putty.

Barry,Lou,

Using polyester putty.
After the patty dries,I rasped the surface smooth.

Kenji your model of the K-2 has come on leaps and bounds,it looks very similar to my own rendering ! probably the only two models of this rare racer in the whole world ?

Lou,Barry,

Because they cannot watch a real plane, these two models are precious.
I make a square radiator from now on.

It is the real pleasure of solid model.
