Hi John
I like both porotypes. One the first a Bronco grill would look great.  Also I am not a fan of the multiple 1/8" thick interior panels that need to be glued together and like the two larger pieces for internal components in the second prototype.  Also this thing needs seats.  I so enjoyed the seats on the Jeep Grand Wrangler - i recommend integrating this feature, or some kind of seats.

It takes 2 minutes to decorate a slab tire even less if you make a template of the style you want and use a drill press
These are done freehand , the wheels cut on a band saw

sizes are optional [biggrin]

Looking great, John! 


I would drill the holes for the axes 2 mm bigger than the width of the axe. In that way the whole car will be able to drive over blocks on the road and wobble hilariously like those cars do. 

keep up the good work!

Hi, Maybe you could glue three wheels together and then cut them in half.

Cheers Raymond.

You can buy dual wheels if the width is correct for it.

megaponycar.jpg Rough concept sketch for a companion Monster Muscle  Car. The final design will be an iconic muscle car like a Mustang, Camaro or Hemi Cuda. I am also working on the Bronco Monster Truck and hope to post some sketches in a day or two.

Look up the LA Dart "Wild Bill Shrewsberry" I think
I had a poster as a kid with the dart showing daylight under all 4 tires

Like your concept sketch although I prefer v8s to v6s

I sketched this Monster Truck Forty-Ford Power Wagon out on a piece of scrap wood today. It has 2" wheels and is 7-1/2" long. The design is a peach to make. This might become one of the selection of 4 Monster Trucks / Cars Plan Sets I am working on. Feedback? Right now the list is - 1. Ford Bronco - 2. Muscle Car of some type - 3. Forty-Ford -  4. ? maybe a VW bug or mini bus.....
