    Perhaps when 'santa' finishes building Christmas Cards this weekend he'll put a hobnosed boot up his own tail and get back to designing!:twisted:
    (Hopefully!!)

    Sorry, Stage...that "certain person" hasn't had the opportunity to do that. I think "he's" waiting on the final release of the models before doing so (as well as finding time!) :)

    Finally jumped in and started trying to construct Mater. I have a question for those of you who have built some cars before, cercerning the wheels. I am trying to figure out the better procedure. Do you glue the "tread" part together first and then press the sides on? Or is there a better way? Regardless, you get to a point with a wheel like the ones on Mater, where you have a "closed" object and you are trying to glue tabs inside. Is there a trick to this?

    Thanks!

    SW,

    what i do, and mind you, this is only what i do, i roll the tread into a circle, and glue the ends together, and then glue the sides on, of course scoring the tabs on the sides of the tread first.
    then i usually attach the outside wheelside on first, and push the tabs from the tread as much as i can to the outside of the wheel disk, this doesn't deform the wheel much, but it works for me.
    to finish the wheel, the inside wheel disk goes on, and I will trim the wheel disks to the level of the tread, and use a black sharpie to color the edge.

    Thanks! That is the method I have been trying, getting mixed results. I've seen your work, so I know the method works (and well)......I know now it's a matter of practice (and patience).
