1:32 Tireless Albatros Wheels
« on: April 28, 2015, 09:53:27 AM »
Certainly to be of quite limited appeal, but if you happen to have been lucky enough to acquire some of Steven Robson's nifty natural rubber O-ring tires, possibly of interest. Standard black 21mm OD, 18mm ID o-rings will also fit. Designed to fit over a 1.7mm axle, i.e. brass tube, and secured with a wire cotter pin ala the original.




available in FUD and FXD. Those shown in the photos below are FUD (the lower resolution material). FXD proofs have not arrived yet. Comes in set of 2 or 4.

Those wheels look lovely Bo!

Beautiful Bo, can't get any better than that, the lighter colour O Rings certainly add realism to the wheel.
