Produced to fit the Tamiya Porsche 962 kit, this set contains four turned and polished aluminum wheels, cast white metal inserts, and a fret of photo-etched trim rings.  Assembly is a very straightforward affair that involves installing the centers into the rims, and attaching the trim ring to the center.  I recommend painting the center insert gold before installing them on the rims.  After the photo etched trim ring is added, a dark wash was used to give a little added depth.  The tires pressed on, and they were complete.  The center lug nut could be polished, or painted depending on the car you're modeling.  Check your references when deciding what to do with the nut.
