The master makes his masters, masterfully.
They look great Bob!

Here are the styrene masters for the wheels and the two sides. After a bit more clean-up
I will try today to get the first rubber mold material in place on these parts. It's kind
of important to get these done because the fit of other parts is dependent on having
these to fit to.

The sides will have flat backs so that mold can be a simple one piece mold but the wheels have
detail on both sides so that will have to be a two part mold.

Thanks guys for all the welcome comments.

I am still working on a set of wagon wheels. Work has been slow because of the outside
work around the house getting ready for winter. It happens every year and I get
slower every year too.

Looking back on my previous explanation of making wagon wheels I see that I do step
that I forgot to mention back then. After the parts have all been glued together but before
adding the tires, I clamp a flat piece of wood to the table of my disc sander. I then
lay each wheel on the wood surface and move it into the sander until it just cleans the
wheel off at the pencil line marking the outside diameter. I then use a strong pin
pushed down into the wood at the center of the wheel and by turning the wheel 360 degrees I get a
perfect circle ready for the tires.

Nice wagon, Bob! Looking forward to your next build.
Pennman Posted - 10/22/2020 : 09:50:03 AM

Your ways of making molded parts seems like the way to go for sure. It will be a great rendering to follow such a fine Master Craftsman such as yourself. I will be following along with your endevors.

Ensign Posted - 10/22/2020 : 09:20:49 AM
Hey Bob, I can never get enough of your modeling!
So it's great to see that you have another project, or 2 in the works.
I'll be watching for sure!

Pete and Rich, thanks for your posts.

I check the forum several times a day but I have not been posting. Here's what's going on in my model building.

I have found a building that I would like to model but it would result in a very big model,
especially in 1/24 scale. I have tried several ways to scale it down but so far all my ideas have
resulted in it loosing it's "look". I will continue to work on that.

I have also thought about making another wagon, they are such fun. However, while thinking about
it I realized that the hardest, most time consuming part, is making the wheels. I decided
that I would make a set of wheels and then make a mold and cast my wheels in resin. That thought
led me to think about the fact that if I did the same (mold and resin cast more parts)I could make
wagons quite quickly, sort of like make it as a "kit", not for sale but for ease of assembly. I
think I might do that and base it on that delivery wagon I did years ago. That one is a
simple design that started out from drawings in an old Garden Railways magazine. I have made
changes to make it more realistic so that is what I think I will do. Most of the construction
has already been covered in my previous posts so I see no need to re-post it all but you know
what I will be working on.

This is the wagon I will be making again.

Wow, Bob. Wonderful work.
