I recently purchased one of the new Airfix Aston Martin DB5 kits to build for my daughter – she has taken a fascination to James Bond’s Aston Martin and wants Daddy to build her one.
The kit is very simple, so simple that the wheels are the tires with an insert for the spokes held to the axle pin with a two arm “knockoff” hubcap. As it is for my daughter, I would like to make the wheels (& tires) a little more realistic (ie open spokes) if possible. Does anyone know where I can obtain both the wheels (with open spokes) and tires for a 1/32 scale DB5? Would be nice if I could also find the three arm knock off hub caps use in the movie Goldfinger. Checking online, the DB5 came standard with the two arm and were later upgraded to the three arm.
Any help (websites or suppliers) would be appreciated.
