    Instructions and photos on 1/24 scale piano wire sidewinder rear axle and motor box support

    Guys,
    Does anyone have instructions and photos on how to construct a 1/24 scale piano wire sidewinder rear axle support and motor box? Thanks.

    Check the building articles in the Scratchbuilding forum - there are several detailed builds with pics there!

    I'm not sure if there are any showing sidewinders... but you might find some helpful pics at least.

    Al, do you want instructions for a full sidewinder or an anglewinder motor box? For an anglewinder, Steve Okeefe's The Independent Scratch Builder has instructions with photos. Here's the URL: Motor Box
    I like long walks, especially when they're taken by people who annoy me.

    I made a jig up to make the one piece rear motor bracket. I do not bend up the rear portion, the builder does to his length. If you are interested I will scout around for the jig.
    Why make it tougher than it really is?

    Sorry, you misunderstood, I made the jig for ME, to be able to make them.

    Rick - I know you sell the wire benders... but if the jig is for you, then I'm guessing you sell the motor brackets?

    Don't worry Al - I think we're all a bit confused at times!
