You don't usually scratchbuild drivers. Impressive. -- Russ

Thanks guys for your comments,
Unc, My 20 three-quarter inch scale small steam engines models. The two wheel sets are the 16th and 17th of the spoke type drivers. There are 57 wheel sets in all, seven are commercial parts the pony and tender wheels on the Tea Pot and the Glover. All the others are scratch-build. On the two class A climaxes, I used Ozark Miniatures 36 inch V-Belt pulley for the centers and scratch-build the tire part.
Here's a photo of the progress on this model. At this point I need to paint the frame behind the drivers before adding the rest of the parts, and then I will complete the painting.



The photo is on my Flickr

I have no idea why I wrote that comment, Gordon because, when I think about it, nearly all the wheels on your models are either scratchbuilt or extensively modified commercial parts. I will stand in the corner.

But you need to stand in the corner, too, because we haven't heard from you for over six months. I hope you've just been distracted by busloads of beautiful girls in thong bikinis, each eager to cater to your every whim, and your absence reflects nothing more serious than that.

I eagerly anticipate your next installment.
