The fuel oil lines have been installed, as well as the throttle cable and linkage. Also, the tires have arrived from Teds Modelling, now just waiting for the wheels. I used my lathe and three grades of sandpaper to get rid of the mould lines on the slicks, and put realistic wear on them. I simply clamped the tires on the chuck, using each grade of paper at differing speeds. The fronts were just done by hand as they were too flexible to be put on to the chuck.

Here is a picture of the wheels that are on there way to Steve.  They are the first 1/16 scale M/T wheels I have made we did a set 1/12 scale for Joe.  I think they turned out pretty good if I say so my self.

Yep, definately like the look of those wheels, they look great, can't wait for these beauties to arrive. I have taken a rest from this build so I can enjoy xmas and new year, can't build with a hangover :-)

 

Thanks for the kind comments guys, will need the encouragement after the holidays.

 

Steve.

well all I need now is the wheels for a rolling chassis. The steering is now done, and the emergency and clutch cables have been fitted. 

The under belly pan has been painted and fitted, I will fix the fastners to that when it is on it's wheels.

Steve... It's awesome to see that you are just about ready to button this one up. I can't wait to see what you have in store for the paint.

Looks amazing.... I'm following! I've dealt with Ted for small items that cross over into the 1:12 and 1:24 world that he stocks. He is very knowledgeable and communication was great back and forth. I highly recommend all scales at least check him out.
