LOL
Thanks Frizz

Little truck is waiting on dresser thingy next to work bench.
I've too many little trucks started and absolutely almost no time to play right now.


Seems to always work out that way for me.lol
I'll be back on this one shortly I hope though.
Not much to the construction of the cab. plus I have built a couple versions already, cowl is always a buggar but I have a wood buck I can vacuum form from to speed things along.
I'm still wrestling over using the spokes for this project or whip up some all steel heavier duty versions looking ones.

I might have to just break down and buy one of these 3D printer doooohickys yet...ahahaha

you do NOT want to go down that rabbit hole.

the spoke wheels that came from Shapeways are done on a powder machine and those are NOT cheap. Not something the typical home user is going to have.

the type of machines that I have are called FDM (fused deposition modeling), or FFF (fused filament fabrication), and they are not real conducive to making things like those spoke wheels..
yes, it can probably be done, but it wont look nearly as good, nor would it be as sturdy.

they are a lot of fun, but do require a bit of patience to get running properly

As ive no patients at all..patients...
I guess I better keep the scratch building methods..
Just bug harry and you for the neat one off stuff that can then be sent to shapeways for a quick beautiful print.

Keep bugging me on this one and i might just have to get rolling on an update of sorts …hehehehehee
Thanks again heartless.
