    i have tumbler paper model under construction and the piece sure looks good!

    well except for the front armor pieces covering the front suspension and area wher suspension connect to the chassis.

    it does not look like that on the real thing, making the front wheels look further apart.

    well all i want is an accurate replacement parts(dont edit orig file) for the tumbler.

    no other parts reported as inaccurate.


    know how to make Tumbler Tyres in rubber?(in any scale)

    I'm sure if you want better... you can do it. :\

    If your talking about Claudio's Tumbler... it's an amazing model.

    so claudio's the maker of paperinside's Tumbler?

    am trying now,but wasting awfully lots a paper...

    my plan is to make a BIGGER 1/10th scale behemoth (out of cut and folded sheet metal, maybe aluminum) and equip it with AULDEY digital RC electronics ripped off the latest auldey RC(with the pistol grip TX, proportional steering, with hardcase) working steering, front and rear suspensio just to humiliate the crappy 1/18th scale plastic crap sold on kmarts and so.

    i had a brainstorm about the tyres....

    the rears are simple US ARMY truck tire(forgot the M designation)

    fronts maybe Formula 1 tyre(rain tires maybe?) with crosswise treads.

    what to use to create strong, shake proof bonds between sheet metal?

    i dont think 2part epoxy isnt enough.

    am thinking solder.

    I'd normally suggest rivets and epoxy for bonding metal, but that's no good here. Perhaps resistance welding?
