Just started this new project, and I don't have any idea on what I will make... This is the fun! At least for me, build something just for fun. Probably I should draw something just to have some reference... I'm getting old, and my mind has difficult to keep all my ideas... :-)

For now I made this...

You know, I was going to put more wheels on it, but with this "economy"... I had to cut on the budget... :D

I must admit. I am bewildered. How large are those wheels, tires, circles, ?

There is no tire yet, only the wheels, and it is little more than 2.8in.

Will mirrors be used along with the smoke?

Like the song? :D:D:D A mirror will be good for driving it, like in any other vehicle so I think to put it, about the smoke, I don't know if I can make it, to have a real effect in the model, but I will try to make it.

That inner core looks like the plastic that an adding machine tape is wrapped around.

I think you are right. :) I use it to help me to build the cylinder.

No no, and remember this is a steampunk thing, so it is kind of fantasy. If I have time tomorrow I will draw the idea I have in my mind... :)

Is this going to be a steampunk-esque mono-wheel, like the one in the new Men in Black film?
