Unbelievable, thats some fantastic work!!!
Cant wait to see it finished.
While the model is too modern for my needs I still enjoy a nicely done piece of Logging equipment in any Era. This is looking like an exceptional model,well thought out and well executed.
Thank you for sharing!!

I think I solved the wheel issue. Yesterdays attempt was a complete failure. But the wheel I made today looks ok to me.

Btw, I am always open for critism.

Jens

Looks like one of the wheels from a Terex truck....what you would call ' man size ' . the tread looks very realistic .

Jens,
That wheel looks like a good match for the ones in the prototype photo. I would also like to know how you made it, and what it is made of.

Haha.. that wont work. Because once over there I dont want go back.

I just saw your questions too late for making step-by-step photos. Have all four wheels made now. But I will go back later when the project is finished an post a tutorial on this topic, ok?

For now, I try a short description.
I made 6 discs out of 2mm styrene sheet. 2 solid discs and 4 disc with a hole in the middle where you can later add the rim. The discs with the hole get a notch/slot on the outside all 18 degrees. Then you laminate all discs together. 2 slotted - 2 full discs - 2 slotted. And then you have to file/sand/scratch/scribe it until it looks like a wheel.

Greetings from germany,
Jens
