      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

  5. so I had one of those 3 steps back , the airbrake containers under the axle were out of scale. must of forgot a number. anyway I had to make them 4 mm bigger,


    next ive added backers to the axles for the brakes . you can see them here looking at the axle to the drum


    I finally finisehed installing all the mud flap mounts , I bought some 1/16 thick 12x12 inch rubber sheet. it works perfect


    im getting close of finishing the lower hull and chassis , almost ready for paint

  6. for me to put the top on, I need to make an inner structure, im using square stock with metal inserts, this will keep the structure strong and not bow after awhile .

  7. I started on the forward compartment



    I received in my sound and light kit. this all should fit in the engine compartment, the battery will go under the floor boards


    I scaled out the seats and seats mounts and there dead on, on difference in the seats is the backer is lot higher, but the width is the same



    after installing the seat something look off. I lost 8mm in between seat, not sure where, I look at some 1:1 interior, man! these guys cant even stand up in side without crouching, really tight inside, so maybe im not that far off .

  11. today I worked on the dash board area. there a lot to do here. I started off making the lower center piece, it looks like heating and air condition




    made the front seat mounts and prefitted the seats



    the upper dash board I used a donar from truck, not sure what from though . the 1/10 scale steering wheel was to big, I needed a 40mm one and the king hauler fit perfect, I still have a lot to do tomorrow in this area . nothing is glued here
