Still doing the rears. Im working on a 5 hole version as well. This is for an upcoming hot wheels custom competition.
That is slick! I’d like to see details when you’re done with your build and open to sharing your secret sauce. Good luck in the competition! I didn’t know that was a thing.
Looks sweet, what’s the size on that? (I understand it’s 1:18 scale but I have no idea how big a drag wheel is)
This wheel is 1" in diameter.
Mattel does 2 conventions a year. We just got done with the east coast one 2 weeks ago. I compete in the pro classes with ex mattel designers.
I’ve trophied in every class except large scale, which is 1:43 and up.
This was my 1st place winner this year in 1:64 traditional hot wheels scale.
Wow! That is awesome work! I imagine you could make some pretty good money making custom cars. Are you using decals or are you hand painting/airbrushing them?
These are water slide decal.
I’ve made quite a bit over the years, but I only do it for competitions now.
That is extremely impressive, both what your cnc can do and what you can do. Keep up the amazing work and keep posting pictures I can drool over
I just finished the 5 holes. The text doesn’t always turn out the best when you’re painting them. It looks great bare metal but that isn’t the look I want. Is what it is at this scale. Lol.
