Congratulations Marcel, you achieved an excellent result there. . . and righted a wrong! Why do some makers equip their products with either incorrect or the least-attractive option wheels? I recently bought a Welly 1:18 911 Carrera 2.7 RS, which I think is generally of reasonable quality and is good value at its price, but which lacked the bright finish Fuchs which I have always considered intrinsic to the car's iconic look. I too was wary about removing the original wheels, but got them off with patience and care, and I think the model is very much better on the wheel style I like, (from KK Scale).

I wish I had the answer... I'm still puzzled after many years LOL :doh:

Good job on the Norev 930, I've changed the wheel on all of my Norev's as well.

I'm currently working on a blue 930.

FYI, the front of the Norev Fuchs wheel just pops off exposing the axle clip. Just pinch the two parts and the wheel just comes off.

Great job! I have a couple of Norev Porsche 930 and two sets of KK-scale Fuchs wheels. Do you happen to have some more pics of the process? How are the rear wheels attached? Thanks in advance!

Hi Eric,

I see you did an amazing job on those 930 models!

I have the red 930 3.0 L one myself, do you say that if we just remove that black front "rose" from the wheels, like you did on your blue model, it works the same way for the red one (front and rear axles) ?

Did they use some glue or the black part is just attached?

I'm looking to achieve the same result on the red model, could you please let me know what is the brand of the new wheels you installed and where they can be purchased?

All the best :worthy:
