    final stretch:


    Fitted a new and stronger 1:5 planetary gearbox because the old one was too slow(1:9)



    And assembled almost everything to do some real world tests











    After this, I'll disassemble everything to paint the chassis and mount the spare, fuel tank and exhaust

    Truck looks really good, and seems to perform well.

    Thanks! I'm solving some issues but is fun to drive!

    A curiosity:

    3D printing is a awesome tool but not everything can came out like it should. Sealed Bearings are tricky pieces and demand precision. On the first axles, used the Dremel to proper seat the pinion bearings but was much of a guesswork.To little and the axles halves doesn't close, too much and the bearing gets loose



    Did this improvised cutter with the right diameter and spacing:











    Simply fit it and screw the halves while rotating the tool. There's no chance of cutting too much

    Thanks guys! much appreciated


    I took it apart to fix some things and paint the chassis. Was to paint the wheels but paint ran out...Someone told to paint it black but...all chassis are black...





    Did the fuel tank mounts in TPU to bend instead of breaking like the old ones...


    I'm in the process of assemble each axle with proper bolts,gear mesh and correct tolerances. Also, I'm adding lights which are my Achilles heel. Not hard stuff but not a big fan :)

    As the first post of 2021, a small thing I've done some time ago and put aside until now. It's 3D printed and the bends were done with heat.

    There's not much to do on this truck,besides finish the lights(which I'm doing in the right mood :) )

    I've got some AK weathering pencils and wanted to try them. Saw the mirrors scratched from the trails and decided to apply some rust instead of touching up with OD green









    This is my first try to do rust

    One thing I wanted to know how to do for a long time: miniature barbed wire
