    Thanks Z. If I only had that chrome finish paper it could have been even more interesting (sigh). There's a story regarding the shuttles. When the person that I made it for received the firefly they accidentally threw out the shuttles! So this is the only surviving record of these...

    Yes these wheel constructions are VERY hard to do . You make it look easy. Wish I saw this first before building the wheels for the panther crane. Your cuts on your other sections and for the wheels are very well done and clean. Love the work you have done so far. GREAT JOB!:) Sky Seeker
