WOW! How did you make the tires so smooth? They almost look like rubber.

The wheels look AMAZING! I like the "realistic" spokes. I have to agree with @Revell-Fan the tyres look like they are rubber. I am looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

Thanx ;)
The process of making the wheel can be seen in the photos, on wheels in the final phase I use wood putty, after the sealant has dried, the wheels must be completely ground and then they look like in the photos :)

Thanks, I'm glad someone likes it even though it has its faults ;)

So I made some progress again: tubes, cables and rivets were added to the motorbike.
The pad is just that simple - cinder block with grass. I made the cinder using sand sprayed black, for the grass I used 12mm static grass.
I'll finish a few more things and hopefully I'll be done... a few photos:
