One wheel done. That was fun. Going to do it again then start cutting the driving wheels, the will be smaller and go at the rear of the tank.

Good grief man, having you been drinking @Blackadder 's martini recipe? Good work with that scratch build so far.

figured out the issue phone keeps switching from 4g to lte. The switching is often enough to cause data interuption.

The part I like about orky conversions is measuring is just a suggestion ;)

I blame the rum, fantastic 4 and my attention span.... once I got around to putting it together it goes faster then you'd think.. lol



6 hours 2 wheels.... not so bad lol more like 20 minutes a tire so in total 40 minutes... its ok. Done for tonight, a whole day of tomorrow to go.

Rear wheels, then track are my goals.



The most pivitol pieces making this possible are....

Does the brand matter.. nope. Where to get.. canadian tire for the o-ring hooks(scribes) and micheals for the circle template. Cost about 14$ total.
