yeah that works. (the reverse colour printing) it looks good!


tip for anyone building this model....

Curve and shape the parts as much as possible
I will spend minutes and minutes and minutes shaping a part until it holds its shape (without support or glue).

In this case, I curved the front ends of the fenders until they joined together without tabs and glue.
Obviously, you still have to use the tabs and glue, and you have to work everything into place while the glue sets to get the best connection,
but the more the parts are shaped, the easier it is.

I curved the front edges of those fenders around a wooden dowel, before joining the upper and lower halves.
Then I rolled the hood and underpan to match the fender shapes.

Then I fold the glue tabs...then I unfold the glue tabs...and roll the the parts all over again.

Well, I was rushing this a bit over lunch.  I think it isn't bad, but could be better.  It's so dinky, pre-shaping is very important.  Not that it isn't always important.

I took note of Don's comments, but didn't compare to his photos well enough.  When I did my reverse print page, I darkened the wheels, but should have darkened the back of the inner tread, which I added to my file, and with those front tires so near the front, I decided to add additional wheel faces.  If you build the treads, these can be attached before gluing the assembly to the backs of the frame wheels.

Do you think this would be a helpful page for others?

Sure.


I'm trying to figure out why I did not include some discs to close up the insides of the Wheels?
Its not like there isn't enough room on the model sheet (which is my usual problem).

I design most of these cars with flat wheels...but with many builders wanting 3D wheels,
I started adding the optional Tread parts if room allows.
In this case, I think inside wheel discs should have been included too.

It's a pdf, and I'm not seeing a way to attach, so I'll just email it to you

Only thing you can do is link to the file and share the download link here.
Thats what I figured you might do.

Because I disabled the file and image attachments here...you can't attach it.

Probably not enough people building this model to worry about it anyway...but it is a great idea.
Nice of you to offer to share it.


I could put together a "reverse side print" sheet myself.
It wouldn't be hard.
But to be honest, I don't want to start sharing extra pages or extra parts (myself).
Its outside what I am trying to do with the KoolWheelz sheets.
If I can't fit it all on one sheet, then it doesn't get included.

Another problem I have, is as soon as I offer something for one model,
I get requests for the same or similar thing for other models! lol

This is definitely something a builder, like you, can do yourself...
and you are most welcome to share the files with our members.

That works.  It would open a can of worms

EDIT -- Here's the file in png format

Connery looks a little unimpressed, doesn't he?
