  1. Thanks for the comments! Here is a quick mock up with body! Not the best quality on the pics, but u got the idea. The stance feels right! /Rick
  2. yes, I´ll do that! Both rear wheels are now glued in place. The epoxi must cure over night first. /Rick
  3. Thanks for your comments guys! Today I recived some fine small parts in my mailbox Finaly I can finnish the rear wheels! thanks for looking! /Rick
  4. Hi all! The "Weld" decals was not easy to make. I decided to buy a cheap ink jet printer and a package of withe decal paper, and from there try to make my own custom decals for the wheels. I made the design in Corel Draw on my computor. This is how they turned out. /Rick
  5. Tim: You´re right, those printed parts are extremley fragile. I broke a small part off when I was removing the sprue...no big deal, it does not show... I thought I must make the wheels stronger. Another problem was the conic shape, it did not fit the tyre at all...it sort of rolled around in the hole, not good. So, I had to solve those problems. I found four Penzoil pro stock rear wheels im my sparebox. I cut out the center and sand the inner side a little. Then I glued the Deltas in the rim. To make the wheels stronger I filled the gap between the rim and the printed part with epoxy. After a light coat of primer I sanded the surface very carefuly. I sanded off the beadlock bolts and drilled holes for new aftermarket bolts. Another primer coat, and it looks like this. /Rick
  6. Thank you! If using this Weld Delta 1 wheels, the decal are most important. You naild it! 🙂 /Rick
  7. Very beatiful and brutal build! I love it! I have a question...where did you find the "Weld Forged" decals for the rear wheels? Slixx? ...some kit? Regards/ Rickard
  8. Wow, those wheels looks truly amazing!! I recived a package from Shapeways today. the 3D printed Delta-1 rims looks really good what I can see. They are printed in a milky-clear filament or resin...I dont know. /Rick
  9. Thanks Erroll. I´m still looking for some nice rear rims. On my previous builds I used Revells Convo pro wheels from the Top Sportsman kits, but on this I want something else....Weld Delta-1 with beadlock would be nice! Cheers / Rick
  10. Update! Rear axle are now mounted on the chassies. The wheelie bars was built from Evergreen strips. Primer. I wanted them look like they were pouder coated, so I airbrushed then semi gloss black. I scratchbuilt those small wheeli-wheels from Evergreen tubing. Mounted with RB Motion bult, washers and nuts. Thanks for watching! / Rick
  11. Hi guys. As many of you can see, my update ratio are more less than many. I started this project more than 9 years ago, so I can understand that many of you get tired and bored. I know, I should put more effort in modeling, but time is the problem here. I wish the day had more than 24 hrs Update! Rear axle are now mounted on the chassies.
