A bit of progress on the Tank Wagon, splitting my time across a couple of projects.

Sorry for the lack of updates.  Holidays and all.  I have multiple projects in the pipeline as I get the business ready, so I'm taking the opportunity to build some of the items I want as masters for casting.  Here's the start of an alternate gunwagon.  I want three for myself anyhow, so I figured casting would be easiest, plus I can offer them in the store.

These are some of the best, most original and just plain-out fun scratch-builds I've seen in a while. Love this thread and your blog!

Work has started on the front road wheel. 

I glued two soy milk carton caps together and filled with resin.

After filing to shape,  I cut and applied the hubs and treads:

Meanwhile...

As I began the track modules I found that they would be the same size as the one for the OrKV-2 grot tanks I'm building, so rather than double up on the work I modified the gun wagon chassis so those tracks would fit:

The roads wheels are cast from a master build I did, but the units themselves are scratchbuild. A little impromptu sneak peek at another project I'm keeping under wraps for now. They are designed to be cast, what you're seeing are the masters.

Over the next couple of lunches I managed to get the detailing done on the wheel, distressed, rivetting and bolt heads :

Stop killing me with suspense. It's rude.

Over a few days and some sneaking off at lunchtime more progress was made:  

The wheel was bored out and matching pegs were made for the hull. The pegs are nylon bushings rustled up at the hardware store

side sponsons were then built out, fitted and detailed

Finally got some dedicated progress done.  Started the 'Ard Case for the Gun Wagon, once it's distressed and detailed I can start on the turret.
