Hi ian do you just paint the tyres in on the solid resin casts ??? Cheers nigel

The tyres and wheels are cast separately Nigel, I would never get a clean hand painted line between tyre and rim! I usually bore out the tyre centres to fit tightly to the rim, then after spray painting them in matt black, submerge them in hot water, press fit them on to the rim and let them cool and contract around the rim.

Just a thought Ian,but Plasti Dip black rubber leaves a more realistic effect than Matt Black,
