    Default Frame cutting and joining

    I'm toying with an idea for a winter project. It will require shortening the frame rails of the scx10 I'm tearing down. What's the best option for rejoining the frame rails after shortening them? Or should I look at other options?

    I'd suggest welding it back shut, which I'd be happy to do for you. The other option is make a flat plate of (aluminum?) something hard that will fit inside the rail channel, and you can bolt it through a couple of spots to keep it solid.

    Thanks Chris. I've found schematics for an Iltis which I used to drive in the military. I'm going to try one for my first scratch build.
