If you mean the lump of resin that's attached to the wheel I use the little saws as obtained from Accurate Armour which is mounted in a blade holder. you are left with a bit of a flat spot and no detail to which you are supposed to arrange the wheel so the flat is at the bottom of the wheel.
I decided to go along with a nato colour pattern, I used an AK nato set and set about applying the pattern as I saw fit .The AK paints flow through the airbrush without any thinner or water but I did notice that the paints are supposed to be flat and yet all three had a distinctive glossy sheen to them. However it was not a problem as the whole thing was given a coat of floor cleaner polish I have long forgotten which one as its in an unmarked bottle but I know what it is. I shall leave it all alone now for 24 hours at least for the polish to go rock hard.
I just had to stop what I was doing for a moment to show this picture .It show the application of MIG crystal orange and the effect you can obtain with it .
you first of all apply silver paint to the area let it dry .And then apply the Mig crystal on top of that .I have found that you can build it up between coats as well.
Well I think its really good at he Het and trailer have a lot of reflectors all over it so it really makes it pop.

It is the actual trailer that's twisted ,this is what you get with resin I should have addressed it before I started.
Maybe it will touch down when I put the load on.
Next job, decals on the tractor unit.
Taking photos of the model helps to focus in on the detail of the model. For the while I'm trying to add all the bits I have left over to get as near the end as I can before I crack open the intended load.
