    Default Project 7 from d3javoodoo ^custom wheel design^

    Here are a few pics of another project of mine that I've been working on ... For a while now I've had some ideas in relation to automobile design in every aspect. Recently though I have began to lay the groundwork for a (custom) rolling chassis to support multiple small scale concept vehicle designs.

    these are images of a single wheel design currently in progress. I choose to use 1/4" x x1/2" crst stock to begin fabrication of the bulk of the spokes, & plastic pipe section for the center wheel well. Eventually when the original is complete I'll make a mold to reproduce in different mediums like plastic, aluminum, bronze, etc.

    @ this point I've chosen to use 1/8" instead of 1/4' to decrease weight.
