A quick word about the images included in this review. The wheels sets with the covers (hiding the spokes and the rim) are the original kit wheels. All other items in the images are included in the Scale Spokes product.
Scale Spokes offers a number of high-quality after-market items for 1/48th and 1/32nd wheels for various aircraft. To see a full list, description of each item, and images please visit the Scale Spokes website.
This review features the 32nd scale set for the Nieuport 28. This set is hand-made, and as I’m sure you’ll agree after having viewed the accompanying images, is magnificent! Just like the actual wheels on the Ni-28, these Scale Spokes items have 3 set of spokes. A set connects the inner and outer edges of the hub and another set connects the center of the hub to the rim.
Scale Spokes uses resin or aluminum hubs, aluminum rims, cooper wire spokes and rubber tires. While the rubber tires have been removed from the rims, as seen in some of the images, they are packaged “on the rims”. It is a simple task to remove the rubber tires, if so desired, and to attach the resin tires that Scale Spokes provides.
