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!

Added an aluminum sleeve that slides over the axle that has been tapped for a nut....
You can see that the rims I'm building are still not ready for prime time and am using the plastic ones for now.
thanks for looking!

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

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 !!
