1/12 Fiat Mephistofele
Posted by Tracy B on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 12:56 AM

I have a question about this Italeri kit. Especially if anyone has or is currently building it.

The directions seem to call for the spokes or possibly the entire wheel to be painted Brass.  The pics in the directions and internet photos I've researched show the wheel assemblies painted black. Any tips or suggestions will be much appreciated. I'm moving REALLY slow on this build. It's quite possibly the most detailed kit I've ever attempted.

Definitely go with what you find in your research as kit instructions have been known to be wrong.  Just be cautious of the websites you are viewing for your research as some can be wrong as well.  Use a trusted source.  I use kit instructions as a guideline for  building anyway.
