finally able to get started on this build, ive been wanting to do this for along time. I believe ive done enough research and download enough pictures to get start
like all my builds it wil be r/c with a working arm . ive scale this out to be a 1/10 which is really big, somt times I think I take in to much fumes . lol
ive measured this out to be around 790mm, tires are 126mm using 2.2 rims
theres going to be a lot of 3 steps forward and many steps back . im going in 1/2 blind on this and don't know what walls I will be hitting. im assuming around 400 hours ,
so this will be great winter coming build . well enjoy the movie and lets get started

ive cut the frame rail, I some what know where the axles go, I need to make the lower hull 1st. ive started by intergrading the rails in the hull, starting from the front

I have to admit that I’m not completely unprejudiced with your project, the reason?
Your avatar is from a truck model that I’ve build when I was around 16.

So anything you build is gooooooodhe1he


However as I’ve said before, there are hardly words to describe the sheer beauty and unbelievable quality of your work, especially not being a native English speaker.
