All very impressive. I'd say the builders all seem to be imaginative. I think it also takes some courage to make such modifications. I know, from experience, it can be disheartening to spend a huge amount of time trying to scratch-build something only to have it not turn out well. I believe practice is the only way to get good at scratch-building though.

As far as I can tell, the suspension on that trailer looks like it'll be good for a variety of subjects. I'm a fan of Moebius!

I think Moebius Models has the ability to reinvigorate heavy-truck modeling by itself. This is great news!

Looks good Ron. What's your opinion of that cordless rotary tool? Do you find it powerful enough and the battery life sufficient?

Actually, what I'd like to see is some custom wheels for a 1/16th KW. If I drew up a design for wheels, how much would it cost to have them made?

I know a little about machining and guestimate you'd be looking at between $50 and $75 per wheel. Also, at that rate, the machinist would have to agree to do the job for love of the hobby or a personal challenge. After I realized how expensive it is to have custom machining done, I bought my own lathe and mill and derive a great amount of satisfaction producing my own metal parts.
