I'm still looking around for a source of truck/tractor tires/wheels, without spending a whole bunch. If anyone comes across some in an un-thought of place please let us know.

Mine cost me 10.00 bucks from a Spiderman 4-wheeler! It has two big and two smaller tires .I cut the centers out and used some extra rims from a Romels Rod .

That's where to get them. There are some some cheap Pull Back farm tractors in about 1/43 - 1/32 scale. The tires are about 1-1/4 to 1-1/2.

Well, I hope nobody minds, but my little tractor conversion isn't going to be so little. It'll be a little bit jumbo-sized, actually, because I'm starting out with a '26 Mack AC. :rolleyes:

Mine (above) is also a Mack, but it has been somewhat shrunk.

I noticed. :D Mine might keep a few more of the stock Mack parts, but even stripped down of the uneeded truck stuff it's still pretty big!

Unusually for me I watched some TV last night. TV is always good for my model building.
