Look at the shadows under the ‘car’ – it’s clearly hovering. Clearly. As in…without doubt.

It’s definitely floating there.

this is first sphere(ish) “wheel” and it takes to long to make it with layering styrene, so i seek your ideas and every advice on how to make sphere wheel is very welcome.

Matija @matija_skobe, If the wheels are all the same, I would suggest creating a master then a mold and cast resin copies. I’ve never used this technique, but have seen examples by others. Should be able to find something on YouTube.
Maybe Michael Rieth @mrieth can chime in on this as well.

Matija, @matija_skobe for the wheels, I suggest filling around the “spokes” with Apoxie Sculpt or similar. Use a Sharpie on the edge to make it black. After the Apoxie Sculpt dries, wet sand down to the black edge and stop. I use this technique for some of my masters.
@jamesb unfortunately wheels are not the same, as they follow the shape of the car/fenders they are slightly different in horizontal and vertical contours, and that is the reason i made a wheel on the body as it is only way to flush its edges with fender
@mrieth i filled back end with miliput so i can drill the inward cone part of the wheel.
But yes your idea is how i should do it, only i need to make it detachable so i dont fill the gap between fender and wheel

aaaaaaaaand action….. well there was some.
and for transparent hubcap
for the new approach, to save wheel-fender gap and avoid terrible scribing, i used Mr.Rieth`s method to make “wheels” (big THANK you) and its faster and better and easier.

Applause. . .
Very good scratchbuilding. I’m excited to see the honeycomb pattern on the clear parts!
@airbum sorry to disappoint you, the honeycomb pattern is behind the clear hubcap (yellow part in my case)

to finalize this saga here are finished pictures.
Not proud of final product, but i learned how NOT to scribe panels.

Wow Matija @matija_skobe, this turned out fantastic! Nicely done. You should be proud, I mean, this is at a level most modelers dream of!
Erik Gjørup said 3 months, 2 weeks ago: #
Great! – and the honeycomb visible through the clear part just stands out – WELL DONE!
@jamesb if you could see it up close, you would agree it was a sloppy model and it is at beginners level.
The windows are black because scalpel slipped and cut through windshield. Bad pictures hide more bad mistakes.
@airbum hahaha it was the easiest part, printed on regular paper and glued. with a pinch of gloss
Matija @matija_skobe, still looks pretty impressive to me.
