  • Honker II

    Posting across sections as this is a 132 scale car.

    1967 Ford Honker II as driven by Mario Andretti

    Body, Chassis and wheels 3D printed on my resin printer,

    Sidewinder Fulcrum design

    Decals made on my Laser Jet. White decal paper color matched to the paint help hide the fact.

    Front wheels and tires are 3D printed with a groove in the center so an O ring can be installed to give me friction free front wheels that are quiet. I will have to ask if this idea will be allowed in Proxies for the future. The wheels look scale and the rubber o ring keeps them quiet

      Familiar body.....well done. O-ring fronts are typically not allowed in many scale proxies, although some that allow profiled fronts might allow them.
      Press on wheels? The inserts are nice.

        I thought the O rings were not allowed because they don't look scale. This 3D wheel is a hybrid idea where the front wheel looks scale, but just works better as a front wheel with the only contact patch being the o ring.

        The inserts might be ones I got from your Thingiverse files. I really like them and use them for a lot of cars.

          From the posted pictures they do not look like o-rings

                Good ol' Dan Blocker! Hoss Cartwright, for those who remember Bonanza on TV. He owned the team, and for a publicity pic, they wedged him into the Honker, or some of him in it. One leg, as I remember was actually in the car.
