For your missus’s sake, I hope you don’t call your bum Nathan (explosion wise that is)..

Welcome to the T&J addiction (I’ve even converted my bongs to muffler/exhaust pipes).


... I’m not good at making wheels. lol yet. My first project on this scale.

You are not ”man Friday’s offsider” when it comes to wheels. I have found that at around $1.50 per wheel (the big “expensive” ones) from T&J, the mastering of making the “standard” wheels was not a great incentive. Having said that, you will find from many posts on this site, “wheel making” is a whole daemonic topic on it’s own and could (no would) cost you countless sleepless nights in the dog-house.
Just wait till you become a thrill-seeker and tackle those construction vehicle and/or tractor (farm type) wheels… which you cannot buy (even if they were cheap(ish)).

Yes wheels are inexpensive but im a cheapo… I have shopped around. My tools are a simple drill and coping saw. n sand paper. Thats it. Id rather keep it simple to help develop my skill. I dont know y the picture was upside down. Im doing this from my andriod phone. Whatever helps as i post pictures they are for the public and free to share.

A good first. As said wheels are a build unto themselves and can be time consuming unless you enjoy doing them, which I am one that does I even make my own spoked wheels with a home-made jig

Realy beautiful work on body, detailed enough. Yes, you have lot of space for improvement in making wheels (not that I could do better).

Sorry for this “stinging” comeback, but to be brutally honest, I do have to agree with shoot from the hip, eye on the bull’s eye” majuvla.
Takeing all things equal, the wheels do need a touch up (leave the rest alone… posted as a wheel bigot). HOWEVER, when you get to make the wheels of your satisfactory choice, please, please, replace (hopefully not glued in)... and re-post the new pickies.

Shoot me for my candour… not for my looks…

Please, please interpret this as an encouragement and not for a pleasurable spanking.

You’ve done a nice job on the timber jinker Nathan but the wheels would set it off…

Have a look at “Woodworks Ltd” in Texas were I’ve got mine, yep, shipped all the way “downunder”...

Great service and prices http://www.craftparts.com/toy-wheels-c-178.html
