Dave, Jerry, and Bill, thanks for your comments.

Now the wheels are mounted. Looks like I will now have to move onto the horse.

Bill Gill Posted - 09/25/2020 : 8:16:37 PM
Wheelie nice work, Bob, you're rolling right along nicely!
TRAINS1941 Posted - 09/25/2020 : 5:32:27 PM
Looks good to me.

Your talent is showing up with these wheels.
Guff Posted - 09/25/2020 : 4:22:03 PM
Building wheels are way above my pay grade but you sure are good at it!
sgtbob Posted - 09/25/2020 : 12:37:48 PM
Thanks Bill and Rich.

I have not had tome to work on this project due to some personal issues but I am now back on it.

Let me first say that this is NOT the way real wheels are built. I have been down that
path and it is laborious. It does work for Model RR models though.

Here are the styrene parts for a wheel. Starting from the left that little circle is
the inside of the hub (will be drilled later). Next is the inside layer of the wheel
and then the spokes (those little parts fill in between the spoke ends to make the wheel
solid, in small scales that could be replaced with a little putty).

Next is the outside of the wheel layer and then the parts for the outside of the hub.
The spokes had been shaved to give them an oval cross section and when this is all
together I sand the circumference to make it smooth and even and apply a long strip of
.020 styrene to represent the tire.

Bob, thought I would see if you had started. Wow, you really took off. Fantastic job. Looking forward to seeing it completed.

Nice hub caps, Bob.
They will add a lot to the wheels' appearance.

I tried to sharpen the photo a little. It didn't do much. I think the shot was taken a little too close for the camera to focus on the hubcaps rather than the scrap piece they are mounted on.

sgtbob Posted - 09/21/2020 : 07:10:27 AM
Thanks Dave, much appreciated.

I am in the process of cutting out all those wheel parts and I noticed something I have
not seen before. The wonderful Berkshire Valley Kit shows the ends of each axle with a
hub cap held in place with a square nut on a threaded rod down inside a hollow end of he
hub. I was able to reproduce this in 1/24 with bits of styrene but I am unable to take
a good photo of it. Here's my try. I see that one nut is not quite square, I'll have to remake that one.


Guff Posted - 09/20/2020 : 1:56:49 PM
Amazing Bob, this entire build is amazing!!
Love your work!
sgtbob Posted - 09/20/2020 : 08:40:49 AM
Greg, Carl, Mike, and Greg R, thanks for your comments.

Here are the major wheel parts to cut from styrene sheet, the hubs must then be added.

And here are the harness shafts installed on the running gear.
