  1. Bare Metal Foil is great for chrome strips. Cover the whole running board then carefully slice along edge of strips with a new knife blade and remove excess. Nice models.
  2. Stripping the chrome is dead easy. Some Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner in a jar and soak wheels for a few minutes. Use an old toothbrush to scrub off crevices. (The oven cleaner foams up so decant into jar through a straw and allow to settle.) Don't breathe in fumes and wash hands etc. Molotow is amazing stuff. I always strip chrome and use this or Bare-Metal Foil. BTW many of the Revell Ferrari models have the same wheel/disk setup. I haven't started my 599 yet so look forward to your build. Cheers
  3. Real alloys don't have a set of inner wheel spokes. I'd suggest Revell have moulded the inner wheel with spokes simply to facilitate easier mounting of a fixed caliper with turning wheel. (Although the disk should turn with the wheel of course!) Nice work HP. With the delicacy of your drilled disks, maybe worth stripping Revell's quite heavy chrome plate and spraying Molotov liquid chrome? Looks great as is though. Looking forward to seeing the colour you choose.
  4. The Mengnut is a terrific little kit. I have three, supplied direct from Hong Kong and couldn't wait to get started on one. One of the guys on Dave W's site has already completed an example. See link below and link from that to his build log which will tell you all you need to know about how good this release https://forum.ww1aircraftmodels.com/index.php?topic=11507.0
