    Yep, that is the same picture I used to model my wheels

    I had no idea the wheels had bolts like that.

    I read they were made this way so anyone could replace a tire in the field. Quite practical in the middle of a conflict.

    The wheels were called combat rims. They were two piece rims that allowed the tires to be broken down and changed without having to wrestle with the tire itself. Unbolt the nuts, rim comes apart and tire/tube slips off.

    Been working on the back portion of the tub.

    This is so much fun, it ties up everything together and it looks mighty good. Lots of details to put on before I print. Here's where I stand

    The bracket that will hold the pipes for the roof swivel. They are printed in place with a minuscule gap between the swiveling portion and the base. It is also chamfered so it cannot get out.

    That's a good place to stand. What's up with the top? Can you print a flexible top?

    Two days ago I tried to print for the first time with flexible filament. It screwed up my printer badly. I had to disassemble multiple parts to get it to run again. After wasting the afternoon, I gave my flexible filament to a friend. So technically it's possible to print flexible material, but not me. I'll make a top that will look like the flexible top but rigid.

    The detail on the top and bars and all is incredible.
