I did look into it as I have one of Marlon's bodies which was all but essential to go with some of the other 1938 stuff available.
The picture below shows a wheel with the same spoke layout as the 308 front wheel, albeit that the 308 fronts had 72 spokes, not 84 as shown in the picture.
The second picture shows the correct spoke layout for the 308 rears.
Both correct spoke layouts are available, however;
The front wheels are complex in their assembly, so many have opted to have the simpler (centre laced) option, which was after all used on these cars later on.
References to size are all but non-existent. I can only assume that sizes varied to an extent, dependant upon whether a fast circuit was involved or not. Regardless, I can only supply 18" for these.
I will have to check on parts, that is, spoke etches.
Ok, thanks Peter, if you find me some relevant bits i'm happy to buy them.
