Found plastic paddle wheels.
« on: December 15, 2021, 07:38:10 AM »
Found these on line. They are 100 mm dia and the paddle is only 10 mm wide…but I have thought about gluing two together for a wider paddle .

They cost me 70 cents each….probably about 0.45 P. There were also smaller ones being 70mm dia.

Hello Paddlebox Q- these have possibilities for simple models or the basics for conversion. . Where did you source them?. regards, Walter.
Blessed are the "cracked" -for they let in the light for the rest of us.

Walter,
I was also interested in them and had a search of the internet. I could only manage to find them on AliExpress from a Chinese manufacturer. My thoughts were to use the 7cm ones (with a couple of mm shaved off the diameter), for Vic Smeed's 'Royal Falcon' which is slowly being built. Just not sure about this seller/site and will probably stay with the plan suggested tin-plate ones.
