« Part 2: Model Build #2 : WWII Jeep w/ Trailer plus M-3 Antitank Gun 37mm UPDATE! Part 3 of WWII Jeep series Part 4: Model Build #4 : Tires for WWII Jeep w/ Trailer »

I did a little more this weekend. Actually I did a lot. Don’t pay attention to the wheels. They are the next thing I’m going to work on, then the 50 cal.

By the way, what should I put on the wood? I have Tung oil, Danish oil and linseed oil. I can’t decide.

Can’t seem to get the last picture to rotate to see it correctly.

Looking good love the radio.
I’ve seen some of those wheels on them there mud drag racers.
I meant to say something back in your last post, but never throw any parts you make away even if they won’t work you never know when you can use them on another project and save yourself a ton a work.

AM, FM or CB?

Like the profile of the streamline wheels to catch up on (or outrun) the enemy.

I managed to dig out this picture

Its my Dad’s farm vehicle from many years ago. I dont remember it having a stereo radio in the back or a 50 cal for that matter! but come to think of it, it would sure come in handy these days!

Have fun cutting in all the bar tread patterns !

Dont forget to check out Crowies work he made one some time ago

Tony, Thanks for fixing the picture for me. I did this post on my phone last night. I think that’s why I couldn’t rotate the picture.

J’19374, the problem with far too many pictures here on LJ is that people take happy-snaps on their image immortalising device in portrait mode.
The orientation is store in the metadata of the image which is then interpreted by the displaying software on the device (or PC/tablet) and the inbuilt software presents the picture in it’s “correct/intended” orientation.
Unfortunately here at LJ, after the picture is uploaded and the metadata automatically removed, it is presented in the physicality of the snapping device which is landscape.

To overcome this, you need to remove the metadata using some sort of software prior to uploading. Now there is a free version of BatchPurifier (there may be many more) that will remove the metadata from JPG files. You will still need to manually rotate the picture on your PC. Once you remove the metadata, it will be obvious which way it is orientated… unless you are Australian whereby it will be upside down due to the other side of the world.

Alternatively download the file after you initially uploaded it, rotate that on your PC and re-post it deleting the original… much as what GR8 probably did 4u. This way you are using the initial upload procedure to remove the metadata without using a 3rd party software.

From what I can see the wheel will have 50 bar indentations on each side staggered.
Maybe impossible to achieve in a model!

... will have 50 bar indentations on each side…
- robscastle

Possible by adapting this front end jig (50 index loaded),

however, may not be practical… not at 50 cuts depending on kerf width… somewhere I saw a jig for making those kerfs using a swinging trimmer (it’s sex was not specified) and not being a swinger, I did not file it in my memory banks above the line that alcohol won’t affect..
