Front roll

Post  NorfolkModelSteam on Wed 05 Jul 2017, 7:48 pm

I've almost finished the first front roll and now need to neaten up the rubber tyre, what has everyone used to do this? I tried a flap wheel but nothing really seemed to happen!

Hi Greg,
I trimmed mine up a bit with a scalpel,just to tidy it up,was a bit wary of using a powered disc as i didn't want the rubber delaminating.
Hopefully it will "rub in" as it gets some use.

Hi all
I have used 40 and 60 grit flap wheels to "adjust" the rubber on wheels before it just takes a bit of time

I have a build thread in the Owners photos but progress is slow!
