Hi Richard,

I was so excited when I saw your photos! Fantastic! Your little boy is so darn cute and he's obviously enjoying his new toy [smile]

I've been studying your photos since I love your combination of raw wood and paint. Subtle yet highly dynamic and sophisticated! I can see you used resin for the windows, but is the windshield also resin?

Thanks for posting!
Cynthia

Thank you Cynthia, Its my Nephew Alfie, he is my toy tester. He is always excited to receive a new wooden toy. The front windscreen is resin, but I used too much pigment, so it's a little too dark, buy Alfie loves it anyway. A big thank you to John for a great plan.

These wood toy airplanes are the finest! And I love what you are doing with color and the clear plastics. Genius.

I think the darker window is great, kind of reminds me of car windows that have been tinted. Colour variation is also good

It's 21.26 and I've just come back from the workshop (shed), very excited, I have just cast my first resin wheel, If all goes well, I will explain the madness behind this.

Hi Richard, I wonder if you can mold a soft rubber tire out of some material. Do you have any thoughts on this? Maybe it could be molded around a rigid wheel?

That might work John, I presume that I would need to do the exact opposite, ie: a hard resin Mould and pour in the rubber, where as now I have made a Mould with silicone rubber and then cast using polyester resin, I am not sure weather you can colour the rubber with a pigment dye. I will check out my resin wheels in the morning and post some pics.

John you are a genius, that is an awesome suggestion, please check out my posts in the How to do’s forum. It turns out that I can buy polyester casting rubber from the same supplier and cast in the same silicone mould and even coulor using a pigment dye.
