Wheels done and mounted

This model is not all that detailed. The best detail is in the Campy rims (with separate knockoffs) and the hollow Goodyear tires that fit onto the rim, just like real life. The fronts steer with a sort of trailing link (I think). I had to put the chassis into my old model vice to hold the front assembly together. The rear axle broke during assembly (visible to the left of the pic), and I rigged it with some magic tape.

I think that I will try to paint the interior a bit so it isn't so crude.

Nice job. Looks incredible. I agree the interior is lacking the detail that the 66' has. But alas, you have to start somewhere. It is so nice to let the mind wander. The drive for personal perfection continues.
