    Thanks. The encouragement really helps to keep up momentum

    Today's work.




    I need to get some strip for the tank details and put a filler cap on and I'll be a work light away from done-ish on the drivers side modifications.

    The HEMTT has a round air cleaner and a tool box and hydraulic tank normally

    nice progress, loved the out-of-box thinking on the "steerings rams", simplified with servos

    Thanks guys. The ram idea works pretty well. I still have to secure the shock bodies but I'll get to those while working out body mounts.

    But wait! There's more!
    Today's progress:
    I rooted in my 1:24 model kit toolbox and found some sheets of 015 and used the paper cutter to make 1/8" wide strips for the tank seam and tank straps.
    I also grabbed an old 6x9 speaker grill


    And cut a square out.
    A little bend and cut later


    And the radiator shroud is complete.
    I added small hinges between the shroud and motor cover so I can flip it up to access batteries etc.

    Then I got some paint on it




    The exhaust goes on the right side and I got a good start on it.
    I used toilet supply line 3/8 copper tube for the pipe, and a grill from an old set of computer speakers with some copper strap and soldered it together.


    A little flat black should hide the sins.
