Help! I need 1/48 motorcycle wheels
Posted by BobR on Monday, December 26, 2022 12:57 PM

I'm working on a scratch build of a 1910 Demoiselle replica and need two motorcycle wheels to move forward.  The wheels on the actual airplane are spoked and 26" diameter with the tire on the wheels.  Is there a source for 1/48 wheels like these?  Thanks.

You can look for 1/48 military motorcycles. I have several. All are from the 40's but I'm sure you can find others. Since the kits are small they are relatively cheap too.

A lot !! And I mean A LOT!!

Can't do better than that.



 Modeling is an excuse to buy books.

Thank you all for you you help, but success comes from odd places.  A buddy of mine gave me a bunch of kits to give away at the next IPMS St. Louis meeting.  He can't model anymore since his hands shake so bad.  Just to pass the time today I sorted through that pile of stuff and found a RPM kit of a Ford Tfc in 1/72 scale.  It has spoked wheels, not wire, but they'll work for this project.  Thanks again, folks.
