« Part 120: Playing with a Bob Cat wheels... Part 121 of Toy Construction series Part 122: Delivery Truck »

Been wanting to try building the wheel treads like they use on the John Deer traitor but really don’t want to build one so trying it out on this build in mini.
I got in a hurry with the glue up of the treads, just BRRRRR!
So not going to black the wheels, tryed it on one of the reject parts and it was way to blotchy from the super glue, come to think about it if I blacked them out it would hide all the work I put into them.
I need to slow down I went and glued up the wheels and now looking at the pictures I forgot to shape the inside of the rims.
I got so involved with the spokes I forgot.

I’m making way too many mistakes on this build got the plans for the Delivery Truck which was on sale at Grizzly so losing interest in this project really fast.
I wasn’t interested in the truck when I first saw it a year or so back but looking at the plans there’s some cool parts to make.
Plus one or two of the Bruce’s made one so got to keep up with the Bruce’s. LOL

But to me it’s clear no mirrors this time.

I like the bob cat Bruce and the wheels are looking also very nice.

When I glue the treads I use PVA glue to prevent blotchy.

Dutchy been wanting to try some of the clear PVA and got some but just love the speed I get with the super glues.
If I would have taken my time there wouldn’t have been a problem, the PVA would have made the same mess, cause I wasn’t taking my time was the end of the day and just wanted to get in the nice warm house. lol.
