Sure is looking good. You got the scale right. Some other models I have seen the proportions are off a little. What did you finally use to glue the rubber on the rim with?. Don't wear it out before Denmark.:D:wave:

Tom I used the liquid contact cement to glue the rubber on cleaned the wheel's and the rubber with paint thinner and glued a little bit at a time about a foot or foot and a half,had to let it set up about 15 to 20 minutes I guess time will tell how well it will hold up,I'll try not to wear it out before Denmark:O

Ok guys and gals just wanted to give you an update,I've takin it out on several runs and no problems except one the cheap steering knob that I put on broke off in my hand must have been made in china:O so I built one nothing fancy but it gets the job done,the real test will be when my granddaughter comes over and wants to ride around on it for a couple of hours.Everyone have a great weekend.Wag...............

You done a very nice job. If I had a Oil Pull like that one, I would never sell it. Have fun over the next several years with it ! :)

Cool! My dad told me they used to hang a kerosene lantern on the front of my JD Model A when raking hay at o-dark-thirty. :)
