    Finally getting around to starting this one. Just at the planning stage, but it should turn on soon. I have the side view sketch complete. Now I need to work on the top view.

    Nice choice of vehicle, I think the Canadian Armed Forces retired those just a few years ago!

    Very humble starts. Wanted to start with the easier part. If s been a several weeks since I messed with a scratch build. Still have a lot of detail and sanding, but itís getting there.

    I got a few more pieces of Styrene stuck together. Need to get some metal for the chassis before I get too much further.

    Default Military Build Off - Canadian Military Pattern Truck

    Decided to shift gears a bit in the build. I had an SCX10.2 slated for this. However, when I saw the Vaterra Ascender on sale at RPP, I had to try it out. Never owned one, so figured it would be a fun diversion from Axial and RC4WD.

    I built the front of the kit, per instructions. The back I am changing up though. I am using a piece of square stock split to make the rails. It just needed to be notched to fit in place. Since this is a two piece designed chassis, the rear end conversion was super easy.

    I will be running leaf springs in the rear. I am also not running these wheels and tires. They were in the kit and are just being used until my new ones arrive.

    I am posting the build over on YouTube as well as here. This is the intro to the build series.
