If you click on the pic itself, it'll come in bigger.

Those wheels had rounded edges, with the sadle for the tire being half moon shaped, deep. With the rim folling that same shape. Plastic, crome plated.

Retract motion is correct:
mains & nose wheel all tuck in towards the wing center

Not mentioned earlier: thanks Hab for mentioning the chrome finish!

Good call by flexible in spotting the axle is shorter than the tire width, so the hub does curve in. Didn't notice that. He must have a side job as a private investigator!

After the picture is posted the 6th time, I'll add it again
You know they are just trying to be helpful!

If you don't have any enterest in makeing it true to the period, just make cave man wheels, and let Gerald bump some stone texture on them.

How big were stones back in your day?

I'm pretty sure my wheels will look just fine.

Of course by "roll" you are not tossing in a pun, right?

Okay fly_electric, you have your choice of the wheel in #78, or these. Either is fine with me.

This one (post #89) looks good. In keeping with the "period" wheels, the #78 hub is open all the way through, so this seems closer to it. Bottom line: it works for me.
