NEW Edition True 13"Wire Wheels 1/25 scale.

Posted by Jevries on Sunday, December 4, 2011,


Been working hard on a new edition of True 13" lowrider wire wheels lately. These new wire wheels feature all 
the details and 
are the most authentic looking wire wheels up to date created by Jevries. Each individual spoke
has a nipple and the 
dish has that nice lip build up leading to the wires creating that real Dayton style lowrider look.

 

Along with the new 13' lowrider wire wheels come the matching 5.20 tires including white walls. The mold on
the right side holds 5 sets of white walls.
The p...

The RC miniature lowrider tricycle project

Posted by Jevries on Wednesday, May 4, 2011,

 

After moving to a new place I finally got my new workspace ready and I'm back at creating new lowrider models. 
This is one of my latest creations and work in progress a 1/12 radio controlled lowrider tricycle. This miniature trike rolls back and forth, steers, hops the front and has a 4GB MP3 player with amplifier on board.
Initially it had some problems with steering but after adding a micro differential it steers perfect!
The overall style of this tricycle is inspired by Latin Active II a cr...

Scale wire wheels : two wing knock offs

Posted by Jevries on Wednesday, May 12, 2010,

 
Now that I've created the 1/12 and 1/25 scale wire wheels I really needed some cool looking knock offs to go along with it. The Zenith straight 2 wing style knock off I find to the best looking and both are not available in any scale so that means: scratchbuilding!

 

For the 1/12 scaled knock off I used styrene tubing and a thick flat strip. A scaled  printed copy of the real thing helped me to determine the dimensions. Putty, sanding and more putty and sanding was needed to get to the final r...

Creating the 1/12 Jevries wire wheels

Posted by Jevries on Monday, March 1, 2010,

 
 I own a nice collection of 1/12 RC cars that I'm going to transform into masterpiece model lowriders. 
The thing that sets a lowrider apart from many other custom cars, besides the hydraulics, are the ofcourse the wire wheels like Dayton and Zenith.
Since there are no aftermarket 1/12 scale wire wheels I decided to create my own set of rims and wires. In the early days I used a PVC pipe fitting as rim, cut the wires from a 1/10 Pegasus wire wheel and used sticky vinyl to give em a chrome or g...

The birth of the Lost Angel '64 Impala part 2

Posted by Jevries on Saturday, February 13, 2010,
After adding all kinds of details like the L.A. script and small winged Lost Angel emblems I had to rush to get this RC Lowrider finished for the Tokyo Lowrider show in Japan. I cleared the body and left it to dry on the central heater covered by a plastic container speeding up the process.

 
 
 
 
Two days later I was sanding and polishing the body, wrapped it in a soft cloth and in my suitcase of to Japan.
Lowriding in Japan is still going strong and the quality of the rides is amazing to say the...
