Randy,
I have to say that I wait with baited breath for each update. I really appreciate your craftsmanship. This is probably one of the best builds I have seen. On a par with Gerald Wingrove. Keep it coming!
Pete

Randy, your model building skills are unquestionable, but what sets you apart is your style.

Thanks Ed :D  :D

 

Hi Mark,   "Scale Hardware"    I think these were the 1.0 size.  Works for the large size rims and tires on this one.  I used the .7 or .8 ones for my door car dragster project.

 

Hi Richard,  Glad you like it so far!!

 

Hey Bill,   They will the same style as the plastic ones,  just out of metal.  Just don't hold your breath waiting to see a pic :)  :)  

 

Hi Alyn,   Thank you for that !!

 

 

   Randy
