      Not Supported

      last few weeks ive been putting together some ideas on my next build
      im pretty sure i have most of it figured out how to do
      only difference between what im going to is that will have aworking water cannon on top the cab. other then that i think i can pretty much come close to it.
      the truck will be full functional
      i have the scale at 1/11.5
      rails are 843mm long
      this will have full detailed interior
      opening doors
      sounds lights etc
      i know its a little early to show you guys, because i really cant start for awhile. but i can do alittle here and there .once i get the t3000 done ,then i can go full throttle on it
      in the mean time , ive ordered parts for the chassis,tire, rims and axles
      heres a picture of the 1:1 m978 hemtt heavy fire truck tanker 8x8 . i will paint it the same scheme

    I have not seen your T3000, nor do i have any idea of what one looks like but guessing how your T1500 turned out I am sure this one will be equally as awesome!

    hmmm, we only have these at the moment. driving around in the street where i work a lot of times:

    QUOTE QUOTE #5

  5. ive started on the rails. have to say im going to be working on the rails for awhile as there a huge amount of work that needs to be done with them.
    i have a couple of pictures showing some of what im doing. the rails and crossmembers has a lot of parts that need to be added,before going on to the suspension
    the 1st picture is the front
    the front chassis rails get cut on a angle and the pull ring mounts from the inside of the rails
    the 2nd picture is of the rear chassis. same thing on the pull rings
    sense im going with a bigger scale, the standard rail (62mm) are to small. the chassis width is now 70mm
    there about 20 more screws i need to add to the rails and a couple more supports
    im also going to be adding cab supports and couple others before priming
    i dont have a mill so i have to make do with what i have far as suspension goes
    it wil be kool though. boy! i cant wait to get some color on this chassis but, right now im focusing on the oshhosh arff but devoting one a day or so a week on this project

    Hey Joe, I checked out the T1500 again. Really sorry about your luck on that but then again, I applaud you for your resourcefulness in turning lemons into lemonade! The T3000 looks great and I am even more sure now that this truck will rock!

    I have never built a truck before but then until recently I could say that about anything in 1:8 scale. Maybe I should start planning an 1:8 scale semi tractor and auto transporter to show off my big cars like I have for some of my 1:24 scale cars.

    I am gonna need a bigger house!
