      Before the Mark II was finished, I was thinking that I need some rest and maybe stopping modeling completely.
      After a few months "without", I noticed that I'm missing something. But, what to do? A new 10-years project is out of question, I need something less complex.
      After a while, it was clear that I had to do something with Cadillac. But what? The answer came rather quickly: a 1930 to 1933 Cadillac V-16 engine and frame, as a rolling frame.
      I have some contacts with people restoring the second version: 1932/33 which differs framewise from the first version 1930/31.
      I will have to do new things, like wire wheels! I searched in this forum for a tutorial, but found nothing. However , I do remember that somebody did recently (1 to 2 years) wire wheels. Can somebody tell me where to search?

    Parallax and perspective. Inner spikes and outer spikes often do not have the same pattern but around the circumference the pattern should be found to be symmetrical. Torsional, lateral and drive forces are common to wheels, but the solutions are varied.

    Mmmm...Thanks for the pictures. The Duesenberg wheel is similar to the Cad one, but the other two have a different pitch. You get aware of the differences when you try to draw a wheel!
