Looks like a fun project! 
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.

 :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.

Just a thought. I have my vacuum going as I'm milling parts.
Makes for a faster clean up!

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.

Post by: Admiral_dk on July 30, 2019, 08:14:03 PM
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.
