Another Proof of Concept

Here is another test I did today.  I’ve been wondering how to build these wheel pants for the Baby Cyclone Peanut Goodyear Racer that I want to have ready for spring.  Somehow, I had a flash of inspiration this afternoon and cut out the parts and slapped this together.  I think this will work.

The covering in the last image is bond paper.  The total weight of the assembly as shown (with full sized pin) is 0.8 grams.

    Very clever George. I like your approach a lot.

    I’ll bet tissue in place of the bond paper would work just fine. Maybe mist it the way you did on the McKinnon Goose; that came out really nice…

      Yes, tissue is definitely an option. The only worry I have about tissue is that the shrinking will sink the surface into a concave shape.
