Response to PWMP

Ah yes, I can see it more clearly now. He used the kit wheel and made a wider tire. Even though it's a little square, he did a good job with the tread.

Yes, the F-5E wheel has a more accurate looking depth to it, though not sure if the rim will fit the PWMP wheel if drilled out. If you have some dial calipers, that ought to give you a good dimension to work from.

BTW, we've been working on not only an accurate Widened HWG Nose wheel, but the fork too. I have the wheels (48th and 32nd) done, but still need to get the forks cast in brass, which may be a while from what the caster has told me.

Here's a rendering of the widened NLG fork and wheel assy.
