I meant the thickness, of each component. Did you stack card stock, the look like their cast!
I am sorry, I misunderstood you. yes, each part is laminated on 1mm card stock. Afterwards, I painted the edges to finish off the parts.
Here is the drive train.
The only problems that I had were making the U-joints. They are really small and I have HUGE (bear paw like) hands (see the problem).
Other then that, there were no other problem.
As you can see, even with the minor mistake that I made, everything fit together very well.
Now on to the tires.
I looked at those pics and wondered what the heck you were making, and then became astonished!! Well done!!
Here are the wheels. Here are the photos:
I did make the side walls (part 81) twice a thick as normal (I did it just to do it), but there really is no need for such.
Wheels are now attached.
Rolling Chassis is finished.
Now on to the cab (which I will start soon.).
That looks great!
Very impressive! Do the wheels spin?
Thank you for the compliment. Unfortunately, the wheels do not move.
After encountering a few problems that I am really struggling with (and really do not have the skills or experience to fix), and talking with one of the major beta builders of this project (as well as Gremir), I have decided to resign from this project and close this thread for now.
If you are interested in following the build of the project, here are the two threads at Paper Modeler:
http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/armory/20869-gremir-f15a-modelperry-beta-build.html (This guy has been doing the most FANTASTIC job on this project as a whole.)
http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/armory/20853-gremir-models-cmt-ford-f15a-1-25-scale.html (This guy has really put in quite a bit of extra detail into this project.)
I wish both of them the best of luck and will be following both threads.
Once again, I am sorry, but for me this project has come to an end.
Thank you one and all for your kind word of encouragement and support.
