« Part 125: Delivery truck wheels Part 126 of Toy Construction series Part 127: Delivery truck Back Deck and more wheel pictures »

Wanted to play with my other set a wheels but ran out of 1 1/2” wheels for centers so lets try some 2” for a change up.
Here’s the wheels I ebanized.

And here’s the new set of tires I can’t beleave I didn’t take any pictures of the new wheels being put together.
I meant to add lug nuts but got busy gluing up and didn’t notice till it was to late. GRRRRR!!!

Note to self drill the spoke holes one size bigger next time,will have a tad better reveal.
It took all day to figure out what I wanted, and once I’ve committed to some thing it never fails that I see something that would have been better. [next time]

Looks like the new tires will match the truck better.

Ebanized the new set.

Danish oil on the tires made yesterday.

Shot with out the flash for a more natural look see.

Fixed the fenders and glued on the roof.

Think I got enough strips on this build?

Name it Zebra.

Sometimes bigger is not better (I can’t believe I said that… lucky it was written). Personally I like the subtle smaller reveal. Either way the wheels still look great (even with tIres).
