What are you thinking of using for the tires?  That would stump me!

At Cabin Fever Cliff Romich displayed a model of a Lanz Bulldog that was a kit ordered from Europe.  The wheels on his model didn't have tires.

I assume that yours is also hot tube ignition.

An interesting model  :) Tyres are available in various sizes. Are you intending to go hot bulb? Someone managed a version using an automotive diesel glowplug.

Some of your dimensions are picking up on the tangency points of the rounded corners instead of the line you intended to dimension. Especially in the lower right view.--Brian

 :Mad:Nice work will follow this thread for sure. One question about the gear. The teeth look not right to me, have you used the number 7 cutter for this gear?
As far as i know the 7 cutter is for large number of teeth. A ten tooth gear should be made with the number 1 cutter

Michael

P.s. look at your cutter it says 55-134 tooth!

You are making good progress, but I must ask about the crank in the bottom of the page - is it made from several pieces not put completely together yet or did you have an accident with it ?

Nice looking collection of parts so far. I think Admiral was asking if the crank is fully assembled yet because of the angle of the crank cheeks in the picture.

Watching this build! Looking good.
I'm going to re-model(3D) it in inch units.
Just a thought. I have my vacuum going as I'm milling parts.
Makes for a faster clean up!

Hello everybody
I'm sorry that I can't answer to everyone. I have to ask help in writing in English. You all work so well.
Today I made the smoke pipe, not finished yet (not polished).

Hello Tapsa,

That stack is going to look really nice after a polish job. I am curious, are you doing the taper using the drill motor?

RCM in Luxembourg were offering some interesting tyres but they no longer seem to be available:

https://www.rcm-machines.com/en/model-tyre

I have ordered a pair of 'Crawler' tyres to see what they look like:

https://www.conrad.ch/de/p/absima-1-10-crawler-komplettraeder-mud-terrain-2-st-1997886.html

But I don't think they will look right even though my tractor is freelance rather than scale.

The DIY supermarkets seem to offer 280mm wheel/tyre sets but again the profile is not suitable.


Best regards

I seem to remember a member (either here or at HMEM) that could not find useable tires for his model, and did as part of the build make moulds, tires etc. - maybe somebody remembers who  :old:

After learning at lot about 3d printing in last weeks, it could be a nice solution to print them from TPU.
Of course a 3d printer or a good friend, owning one, is necessary.
The advantage , it can be made after an own special design for the Lanz.
