Speed Champions wheel inserts for Wheel 18976
#1
Hello Ldraw

Looking for the new-ish Speed Champions wheel cover inserts (referencing Bricklink #'s):
29117a - the Ferrari F40 wheel with 5 wide spokes
29117b - the McLaren 720s wheel with 5 outlined floral-shape spokes

Also from the early waves:
24308b - the Corvette/Chiron wheel insert "10-spoke Y-shape"

Curious what happened with the still-unofficial 24308a. It appears to have been flagged for Certify back in 2016 but it's not made the jump into official parts. Did it get forgotten or were there issues?

Thank you,
Ryan

I was planning to start working on 49098, but I could do 24308b instead. After all I made 24308a.
The subfile is still missing a second certify vote, and thats why it is still not released.
Maybe someone could give it a review?

I don't have 29117a/b.
Their shape is rather simple, but the pictures of those part all lack the vital height information I need.
I could do them, based on the Bricklink images, but I'm afraid they will be no good.
All of these wheel fronts are very different in thickness/height and shape/slope of the spokes.
Maybe I'll buy the F40 set. It looks to have 4 sets of covers.

The F40 is a fantastic little set, and yes comes with four different styles of wheel covers. I could measure approximate heights of the new covers with a mm ruler, but without calipers perhaps not accurate enough? Happy to shoot some close-up images if that would help.

These covers /are/ modeled in Mecabricks, for what its worth, and exportable as STL, OBJ, and Collada formats. Look to be reasonably accurate there.

And here is that odd wheel widener, 49098:

I choose to name it "Wheel Rim Side with Tyre Widener" instead of "Wheel Rim Front"

There's a subfile that never got certified, holding back the main part.
