  1. 1/12 scale seems to be an all important market to reach!
  2. looks fantastic! Thanks for posting up all these images.
  3. Thanks Dwayne for the input. Keep the input coming and ref images flowing. There are so many tires out there and I would love to get a general Top three or five to choose from.
  4. I hear ya Ralph! Thanks for letting me know and I do understand.
  5. I like the "wrinkle" wall for sure. Plan on that!
  6. Thanks Ralph. Any of you guys going to NNL West in Santa Clara. I'll have a table there and would really like to meet anyone going.
  7. Are these resin or actual kit rubber wheels?
  8. You know....I thought the same thing. Which is part of the process. When you make a part that has never been made there are always some changes that should be made. I say that because It would seem highly unlikely that anything done the first time is the right one. In this case I have been staring at it from different angles and it really does push the "chopped" look. I have been thinking though maybe its too much also. So before I rush to do another one I'm going to keep looking at it and give it some time to settle in. You know what I mean? Its so important for you guys to give me feedback. My feelings are not going to get hurt if you guys tell me it sucks! I actually really need your help to steer it to its final look. So fire away. Mike
  9. Thanks for posting these. I have enjoyed this thread so much.
  10. I see what you mean regarding brand. Are you referring to the "raised" letters like this?
  11. Good call! I took the approach you mentioned and applied it to the muscle machine toy rear tires. I created these cause I never liked the wheel designs and the front tires were too wide for my tastes. Pic of the Willys and 57 Chubby with printed wheel and tires.
  12. Hi have sent out the first print run for the 32 top. Once it arrives(next week) I'll post up some pics on how it fits to the body!
  13. Hi everyone. I'm going to start working on a new 3d printed top for the 1:8 Deuce. The top will be inspired by the Ryan Reed coupe. I'll keep you all posted! I'm also going to make a windshield that will fit the new angle.
  14. They are based on the Schott Tomahawk design. Im currently having a test print done on it so I can make sure it has the correct fit to the stock tires. I'll keep you posted and show the pics when it arrives. Mike
