Where can I find the "Expert Tips" for building the wheels?
The wheel-building method used to build the spare wheel in stages 4 and 5 is a slightly simplified version of the actual spoking pattern used by Jaguar on the actual E-type. The visual differences in the finished wheels is almost imperceptible, but confident modellers who want added authenticity may wish to try the more complex 3-spoke spoking arrangement. This is demonstrated in detail in the issue 5 section of the build diaries thread on our forum, which you can find HERE.
