you can buy them in different sizes!

I did look into so RC tires but nothing really fit the bill. Plus I really want to try and make everything from scratch.

Thanks
Worked on tires today kinda rounded the outside edge and re-painted them flat black. Also cut the inner hubs for the "lug nuts" to screw into...yep another 20 holes tapped for the 6/32 cap screws.

Actually changed it back to an all aluminum flatbed holding an Oversize rooftop AC unit to house PC parts.

Looks like I have two of these sold one Peterbilt and one W900 Kenworth both with flatbeds.
I was really hoping to get started on the Caterpillar D9 bulldozer but looks like I will have to shove it back.
Look for it in 2012......wink.gif

You're making these for people now? That's too cool. Count me in for the D9 build!

Little update. Got one of the hubs done today for the front axle it's just an aluminum collar that has a set screw to hold it on the axle then drilled and taped for the 1" 6/32" cap screws.
As you can see I rounded then end of axle to simulate the chrome center.
One more and I can mount the axle.

Next on the list? Front bumper and grill then I will start getting body ready for primer so I can start making items that mount to the body.

Little update I have started getting parts in for the CNC lathe and mill conversion. Alot to learn but sure will make parts faster and more accurate.
Don't anyone ask how much the rims cost now!
1. just a though kinda like a day dream.
2. crap how will I cut them...I need lathe and mill
3. More sticker shock on aluminum prices.
4. Add cnc motors and digital drivers...well cause they are simply cool.
5. set of rims $4000 expression on wife's face PRICELESS

Now to get back on the shop build so I can get setup.

Man FannBlade.... You never cease to amaze me man. With you, if it can be thought up, you can make it. That's freaking awesome... Your a computer artist. And you make it look so easy which is the part that kills me because I know that its not. I know that there is countless hours and unimaginable amounts of money that go into this. At least now that you have the CNC and mill bought, that's a huge cost already taken care of. You should be able to make all of that money back fairly quickly with a big enough client base. I have thousands of single sailors here by me all looking to spend their money on the next cool thing. Maybe I can talk some of them into getting you to make them a fighter jet or aircraft carrier case for their computer. It would help to offset some of the cost and put a smile on your wifes face for a change lol.

ahhhh Afterburner!

When I build my 4' X 4' router table I will be able to cut foam for fiberglass molds. That is when you make the CAD drawings for me.

Fiberglass "F18 Raptor" PC imagine the possibilities!

Yeah I would get a F-14 Tomcat as it was my favorite aircraft when I was in the navy and actually pushed the fire button to launch the jets off of the catapults on a aircraft carrier. It was just insane. It was the only aircraft that, when at full throttle, its afterburners would go into the jet blast deflectors (the huge panels that co.e up from the deck and direct the slat from a jet into the air so they don't damage equipment, other jets, or personel) and actually go over the top of them. It looked amazing. It would make me feel like I was a kid again watching Top Gun (the main reason that I joined the Navy and wanted to work with the jets). A little piece of trivia for you guys. Did you know that the F-14 Tomcat is the only Jet that was designed for a missile? They designed it to be able to use the Phoenix missile as it was so large, heavy, and awkward shaped, that no other jet could use it. They have since retired all F-14's from active status (I was on the last deployment that they used them. The retired them on my ship). It's a great plane and I'm sad that they are gone. The Navy has replaced them with the F-18's big brother, the F/A-18 E/F Super hornet. In fact its such a universal plane that they are replacing almost all of the other ones with it (it's replacing the S-3 Viking as a refueling aircraft, the F-14 as a fighter jet, the EA6B we a electronic jamming aircraft, and eventually the F-18 as a fighter also). It's just an all around aircraft. I hated it because it was phasing out my favorite aircraft but it was a great jet.

Oh and if you made the F-14 then you could make the wings do what they do in flight and fold back. You could also put flashing red and green LED's in the wing tips to make it more realistic. I used to love watching them go to do a fly by because the wings would go from extended (I gave it more stability at lower speeds) to folded back (I gave it more aero dynamics at higher speeds to make it reach even higher speeds). We had a pilot who did a super sonic (broke the sound barrier) fly by just feet from the side of the ship. I have pictures of it somewhere. He got into SO much trouble for it.
