Travel mat aircraft wheels

Wheels for airplanes from a tourist mat Recently I made multi-colored wheels from a piece of a tourist rug.
Stepping back a little, I'll tell you what kind of chassis I did for halls and other light aircraft. Weighing up to 250 g.
My first experiments, this is a variant with knitting needles, sawn out of fruit plywood.

The wheels were fixed with a plastic washer on cyacrine.

A disc made of insulation, cut with a tube. An axis from an ear stick on titanium was glued into the middle.
The tire was made of foam insulation. Pasted on a disc with a moment for shoes.

Very light. There is a nuance, as they say, during a long stay at the “airfield” crumpled. During the competition, the planes waited upside down on the slipway. I go to the start, put it on the floor and immediately take off. I sit down on the slipway.

I tried to cut a small tail wheel with a sharpened tube.
It turned out quite well.

Made a wheel for the main chassis. Also made of black foam rubber.

I cut along the contour with a tube. I pierce a hole in the center. I insert a piece of the tube from the ear sticks, fix it with cyacrine. I squeeze a piece of tubing into a drill and use a sandpaper to form a beautiful tire.
 Wheels for aircraft from a tourist mat I found a small piece of a tourist mat in the model. He made different wheels, black, white, but not once multi-colored. What a problem, I'll make it now.
There is a great box with “tubes” written on it. I choose the diameter I like.
 Wheels for airplanes from a tourist rug Wheels for planes from a tourist mat I cut out thirty circles of different diameters.

They have a small perforation at the tips, in this place the splint will stick very well. But throwing away the leftovers is not rational. Therefore, I clean them with coarse sandpaper for better gluing. I cut twenty pieces. This will be for small diameters. I cut it into pieces with a razor.
The other ten are larger, they require a stronger axle, with a larger diameter.

Wheels for aircraft from a tourist mat Wheels for planes from a tourist mat I cut off the long tip and twenty small multi-colored wheels are ready.
Wheels for aircraft from a tourist mat Wheels for airplanes from a tourist mat Large diameter tires need to be made more durable.
For I will use stronger and thicker axles. For them sticks from chupa-chups are suitable.
And also cheeks should be made as reinforcement. A plastic card will do. I clean off the paint with a piece of a blade, at the same time give it a roughness for a more durable gluing. Then I draw circles-cheeks with a compass.

I apply glue and push the entire structure into the tire.
Wheels for airplanes from a tourist mat I cut off the axle, leaving a small tail.
V a small chuck a sufficiently thick tube does not clamp. I turn to “heavy equipment” and clamp the wheel into the drill.
Wheels for airplanes from a tourist mat  Wheels for planes from a tourist mat True, the big chassis turned out only four-chupa-chups ended. I'll have to buy some more candy.
A batch of beautiful multi-colored chassis is ready.
