Time, Time, Time. If only I had more of it, I could make more progress on the projects I have started. I know I shared photos of my 379 Pete already, but tonight I test fitted the wheels on the axles and dropped a grain box on to see how it looked. I am impressed with how the hole inside the wheels fit snug over the axle without any additional drilling or filing. The 3d printed parts simply press fit together like a precise kit. Of course I designed it this way so I should expect that right? If you look close, the cab and frame parts need a little more cleaning to get rid of some rough surface, but it will soon be ready for paint. I ordered some felt polishing bobs for my dremel to see if that would be a good tool for getting a polished surface. I am open to other ideas if anyone cares to share.
I am anxious to get this model finished, so I can share some final photos here on my blog. I am thinking some nice tall straight pipes should make this one look mean. What do you think?
