Does anyone know where I can find these poverty hubcaps in 1:25th scale?

I need a set to do a model of my real car.

Those caps were never produced. I would like a set myself.

Looks like something that could be fairly easily designed in CAD and 3-D printed. Then that could be made as a master for making more resin copies.  Mayne some 3-D designer could be talked into rendering this item?

Yes most likely, I don't have the skills to do that myself as I have no training in CAD or a CAD program.
But I do have a lead.

Actually... these hub caps come as part of the 1963 Mayberry 4 door sedan resin trans kit. If memory serves, this is an older Hendrix piece that is still available through Star Models.

You might want to send Steve an email (SteveKohler@cox.net) and see if he can cast just these caps for you. They look pretty good!

In the mean time, all of us who have a love of anything with "poverty caps" can keep hoping the 3D printing crowd jumps in to help.

Looking really good Rico, I've got more pictures for you as I promised and they are uploaded to my Fotki, I sent you a message with the link.
I will also get several sets of these when they are done.

Rico,

 

Any chance you could be talked into making a grille, tail light trim panel and interior for the Revell 1967 GTX so it can  be converted to a 1966 ?

 

I'm in talks to buy this very car and would love to build a replica for the shelf

Yes I know, I contacted him a while ago but the kit was out of stock and he didn't want to sell individual parts.
He said he would get back to me when the kits came back in stock but I have not heard from him since so I assume they are still out of stock.
But Rico contacted me about a week ago and said he could do them for me if I had patience, so I shot lots of reference pictures for him with measurements so he can do them right.

Very nice to see these, I'll be after a couple sets myself.

Thank you guys. Nice to see that there´s so much interest in these items.

Håkan sent me a big bunch of photos with dimensions so I can check now if my 3d model is correct.

@gtx6970: Best way is to simply send me a PM. One thing I can tell you already is that I don´t have a ´67 GTX in my stash. So I need dimensions of the kits parts you want to have to be replaced.

I hope this helps for the first time.

 

Update will come.

I would be so in on this one . IIRC , Dave Dodge offered the Belvedere or Sattelite 1 Sedan  .Did this as the Cornet have a quarter panel bulges in '66 not carried over into the '67 Slab Sided bodies ? Thanx ..

Hey guys,

had some time today to check the dimensions of the hubcaps. Would call them done now. I really hope the details come out like they should.

Please let me know what you think. Will put them into my shop in the next days as a set of 8 caps.

Looking good Rico, the center "button" could be tweaked some more as it's slightly off, the center depression should be concave, not flat.

If you look closely at this picture you might see what I mean.

I'm looking forward to be able to buy these.

I know what you mean. Will try to make it better again. Maybe we should do the center deepening a little bit out of scale to make it look more correct. We´ll see.

Hope to get this done till the weekend. Will upload new pics when done.

I noticed a stepped edge where the deepening meet the inner part of the flat circle of the center "button" on your rendering, it should not be there as the concave line of the center deepening goes all the way up to and meets the inner edge of this circle, so there is no step on the inner part of that circle on the real thing...I hope you understand what I'm trying to explain.
Otherwise it looks pretty dead on.
The center "button" will of course be quite small in 1:25th scale and this will maybe not show much.

Have corrected it. Hope it looks better now...

One question left...

Should I do the back side flat or should they be hollow?

Yes it looks dead on now, very nice.
I think flat should work on most wheels.

I would leave it flat on the backside to retain some strength / integrity
