Focus mainly on wheel's rim and hub for next assignment?

@Kent: Would it be ok that I focus mainly on the on wheel's rim and hub for the next assignment?

The front axle and the rear axle aren't only significantly different but also have pieces with complex organic shapes. I've already thought at sculpting but maybe there's an easier way. For the rear axle, I've only found isometric (?) views but no orthographic views. Is there a good method how to handle this in Blender?
