Monty’s Humber - conversion

Recommended Posts

Message for kkarlsen

Evening. I have just join the group after seeing your fantastic conversion of Monty’s Humber (2016/2017). Could you tell me which wheels/tyres you use in the conversion as they seem different from the old AIRFIX kit.

Many thanks

Hi, thanks for nudging me Richard!

 

Wow this is a long time ago, as I remember it, I used the kit tyres and made a mold for a tyre without a cap.

The tyre tread has been made with some thin plastic card, with some grooves added.

A new rim was made mounting a piece of styrene in the Dremel and using it as a lathe.

The bolts were taken from a pack of Meng Nuts & Bolts...

 

After that i made a silicone mold and cast the five new wheels.

Nice work, Kent! I have the same kit and was wondering what to do with it and I like your conversion!

 Kent,

 

you mentioned not having enough 1/32 scale vehicles to go with aircraft models...then how about this 1/35 scale trailer kit which could do the trick...
