Finished Tire

This is the finished tire. The little ridges you see (visible in the lower left corner) are from me sawing excess material away with my X-acto knife. This stuff is hard to cut (not because it's hard, but because it's too flexible). You want a super sharp blade!

The tires pick up any dust they come in contact with, so I use rubbing alcohol to clean the tires between rounds.

The tires are sticky enough, that if I leave Marauder with clean tires on a flat surface for about half an hour, the tires "stick" to the surface and you need to carefully peel away the tires from the surface. I normally leave the tires dusty, or rest Marauder on it's back. Smaller...
