Added some colour to the previous drawing :

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm working towards to making a Scale Paper Model, so every one can have one - you just need to print it out & assemble it ... :)

 

 

 

Give me a few days to work it out though ... :cool:

XV Wheels ...

I didn't get very far with trying to cast them, so I ended up going and getting some 3D printed - following is the trial example :

 

Loaded up :

The Printers :

Printing :

Then test fitted them to the TT-01 Chassis :

 

 

 

 

 

Fitted Strait up :

 

 

 

 

 

Spacers :

 

 

 

 

Note : the larger one will need longer shaft ...

 

 

I may have stuffed up the offset, will have to wait until I've done the body to see how well it sits up against the fenders ...

 

 

 

Ciao, Bantum ...
