Wheels ... Wheels of SteelAbecedar 12-11-2019

No not the Saxon song, but my thread for making wheels.



These are for my "Chariot" that is currently being built.
The clear thread bits are stolen from the wheels of small car from a cheap shop.  The hubs are from spice bottles, two glued back to back and expertly cut out as you can see

For my AQMF armies I need some towed thingies to get towed.  Like this


So, this is the effort so far

These one is made from 1mm square Poly and Circular saw shims




These ones are made of conduit pipe and 3mm tile spacers




I did have to cut out a small section of the pipe to make them snugly fit the tile spacers

Those are superb!
And while I prefer our enemies to be crushed under our iron clad feet, there's something quite uplifting about crushing them under a wheel  Hashut!

If it makes you feel better, it can be an iron shod wheel to compensate.

Very nice!

Conversions are my bread and butter, you've gone the extra league with these!  Has the chariot been painted up yet?  

Would love to see it when you get it done!

Great bit bashing.. those wheels look awesome and well executed.  Perfect choice of parts  Takes Hat off  Also really dig your old school juggernauts pulling the chariot as well.  Look forward to seeing the finished product.
