      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

1/8 wheel question

3 posts in this topic

Posted

Hey guys!

I have a 1/8 Monogram 1985 Corvette that I have been putting off building for quite a few years. Problem is, I want to build a model of my car, but the wheels are all wrong. I need a set of '95 ZR-1 wheels like this:

Does anyone know how I would go about making a set of these? My scratchbuilding skills are somewhat limited, but I'm willing to give anything a try. I just need some ideas as to where to start, what to use, etc...

Thanks! 8)

Those are very similar to some RC wheels I've seen. Check the net or your local RC store and if you find a similar set all you will probably have to do is alter the center to match the Vette. A lot easier than creating a whole new wheel. I'm not sure but I think the 22mm will fit most 1/8th kit tires.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I just took a quick look at some RC websites, and there seems to be a couple that look almost perfect. With just a little modification, they'll look the part.
