After selling on Ebay and, by word of mouth for a bit We now have a website up. Some of the member here have bought from us in the past. For those not familiar with us we offer a wide aray of detail prewired resin distributors as well as some wheels sets and, a few other odds and, ends. We will be adding more items in the near future. You can have a look at our stuff here  http://www.madmodeling.com/store/  Thanks.

Ed, Some stuff to consider. Especially the later model wheels. Not sure what the demand would be for the older stuff though. If I get enough interest, anything is possible though. We do have a few ideas already that are not being done by other casters.

Ed,

Interesting you should mention old truck wheels! I have mastering for the Ford 1.5/2-ton 5-slot, 5 lug offset steel truck wheel, as used by Ford from 1929-52 (along with Chevrolet, Dodge, Studebaker and International Harvester!), and the 1928-early 1929 single (not capable of being "dualed") 6-slot, 5-lug Model AA truck wheel already. In addition, I just got done spending approximately $300 to bring my old Sherline lathe back into action, and later this spring, plan on adding Sherline's excellent vertical mill to my workshop. One of the projects when I get that machine tool will be a TT truck rear wood wheel, possibly doing it with both the 33" high pressure tire, AND a solid rubber tire version. As I write this, I am in the midst of turning out the parts for the Marmon-Herrington Ford AWD front axle units from clear acrylic plastic, expect to have several of these done in a day or two as well.

FWIW, all my references, and my own eyeball observation of TT Trucks is that they used the standard Model T passenger car wheel up front, the front carrying very little more than it would have in a passenger car, the vast majority of cargo and body weight being nearly balanced over the rear wheels, so likely I'll not be doing a specific front wheel for the TT.

What about a Model TT and/or Model AA rear axle/suspension? A decent Model T engine/trans would be nice as well.

I've actually started building an Entex 1/16 Model T into a TT but even then I can't use much from it, just the basic engine/trans and front suspension, the rest will have to be scratch built, but if someone comes up with good parts in resin I might be convinced to do it in 1/25 instead!

Art, Both Jarius and I want you to hurry along with the lathe . I know you're talking about the wheels but that dosen't put them in my hand s as we spoke about this subject in our phone conversation . Heck I think it would be wonderful if Jarius could finance a run of the 1932 Ford trucks he did that outstanding pen and ink of in Resin . Meanwhile you could do the wheels and tires . Then I would have to do a period 1932 Service station , Gulf Perhaps?
