The guy is just getting started with more on the drawing board. If things go well he may be interested in looking into some car stuff. This hobby DESPERATELY needs a source for custom wheels in 1/64, which I'm not sure photoetch lends itself to easily. He did a beautiful set of Farmall front wheel inserts, though. Seems like it would be a headache trying to accomodate the different sizes for cars...???

Waiting to see what his fence products look like.

Greenlight is working on wheel packages. Dont know how far the have come but last I heard they were trying to get some big box stores to get behind the idea. Maybe they will be giving some info soon.

Wheels need to be cast (be it metal or resin) and include tires. As the scale of wheels varies, it would be very difficult to just do the wheels and try to find tires to match. These folks could do inserts but again the sizing is a gamble.

Photo etching is limited by the thickness of the material - usually in the small millimeter tickness range. Think of it as more one dimensional. This is why flat tools and the like works so well.

I can't see any Big Box stores getting behind this process. It would cut into their sales of reg cars and the market - despite our excitement for them - is way too small. Been down this path a few times.

That is why you never see the Accessory tools and things like that in stores.

I was surprised, however, to see Walmart handling the lifts for M2 - BUT I think is was billed as a display/storage item more than a diorama piece based on its stackability.

Imagine how hard to see the tools themselves. I sometimes need a magnifying glass to read the imprints on the cars' chassis.

The images on the right blow up, for some reason the left images open the same page!?!?!?! I had to bang around a little to see what worked at first.

I would love to see Greenlight do up some wheels and tires. They would likely maintain some scale accuracy. I'm kinda thinking like dipstick, but maybe TRU or Hobby Lobby, Autoworld,....maybe Target, dunno.
