Congratulations on a successful wheelbuild. You may need to retension your spokes after the first 100 km or so, but this is very easily done.
The early 1970s saw a brief radial spoking fad, but people got tired of breaking spokes and/or cracking their front hub flanges. You may want to make sure your Miche front hub is designed to accommodate radial spoking; many models from various manufacturers are not.
