Yes, the wheels on the Tiger are homemade, out of 3/4" plywood. They
were rough cut on a band saw and then sanded round using a simple jig
and a sanding belt. Each wheel has a roller bearing (1/4" ID, 3/4" OD)
that supports the shaft, which is made using a 1/4" stainless bolt.
Eventually, I hope to sculpture the outer face to make it look more
scale, but that day may never come ;-)
I thought I had some pictures of the under-carriage, but maybe they hit
the editing-room floor. I'll crank up the ole digital camera this
weekend and post some more details of the under-carriage.
