  • Wire Wheel Applique

    One of my projects has been to create a full-sidewinder chassis for the Monogram Cooper Monaco body. It is a tight squeeze, but it can be done...

    Problem is, to achieve that I needed to mount the rear wheels inside-out. Which really doesn't look too pretty...

    What to do? What to do? Well, one could Google images of wire wheels...

    Then sketch in a knock-off hub and print it out...

    Apply double-sided tape to the back of the print and use a 14mm punch to cut the wheel image out. Put it centered and sticky-side down against the slotcar wheel...

    The step back and admire one's work!

    Still not the prettiest car on the track, but a good bit nicer looking. The real trick is to go fast enough that folks won't notice the ugly.

    To me it looks better 'before'.

    I have always liked that flat face look.

    It seems the 2022 F1 cars will go back to having wheel covers.

      I guess I should have posted about how nice my flat wheels look. Silly me.
