I finally got the wheels for Peter’s walker in the mail today, ordered from a supplier of remote-control vehicles and supplies, RC Planet. I mounted one wheel on each foot of the walker with a piece of plastic-coated wire hot glued in a hole that I drilled through the side of each leg.
Sure, it’s wobbly, without a right angle in the piece, not to mention an unrealistically neon shade of orange, but it’s a fucking walker. After an arduous, tedious and unrewarding slog, I have finally made a 1:6 scale walker.
Looks like I’ll be making more too. I ordered way more wheels than I needed, so I’m well stocked for future mobility aids. All I can say is that, now that I have successfully made one 1:6 scale walker, future exemplars should be much easier. Right?
