    I’ve kept the postie busy all week bringing me lots of goodies, so now the fun starts and it’s time to start building 😬

    I’ll post a couple more pictures as I progress, but I’m sure you’ve all seen one of these built before, so I’ll keep it to the big milestones (chassis, electrics and paint) when I’ve decided on a colour.

    Thanks for looking

    Nice bunch of parts. The UMG is probably my favourite body of the scx10ii line up.

    More goodies from Postie today

    37B5F566-9CCF-4F73-84A4-C8DDA7912B5F
    front grill from Knight Customs/Shapways

    D6CC5CB9-47A1-4D25-8DFF-E85470E46A46
    Light lenses for the new front grill

    i don’t suppose anyone knows where I can get a 20mm Mercedes 3 pointed star badge for the grill, or if anyone has the capabilities to 3D print one? Obviously I will cover all costs plus profit.

     

    many thanks

    So, it’s finally finished. After a week of getting very frustrated with my  radio and receiver because it wouldn’t bind 😡, I decided to send it back to the model shop for them to sort out, turns out they couldn’t bind it either so I ended up changing it for a Spectrum DX5 Rugged, which I’m very happy with 🙂 please bare in mind that this is the first lexan body I’ve painted (and hopefully the last) so it is no where near the usual standard on here, but I’m reasonably happy with it anyway. It’s had a little test drive around the living room as it is absolutely pouring down at the moment and it performed well over the few obstacles I laid out. I’ll get it in the back garden tomorrow to give it a better run and challenge and set up the ESC.

    Thanks for looking

    Great looking truck. Curious to see how those tires perform.

    Added a few scale accessories to the Mog today

    D0DF8775-AA74-4A8A-BE1A-5EE14BE39C0AC3CC24AB-B3F1-468F-9760-AD5E863304405770849E-BD92-42D7-8F4C-6C3838C51580
    also got these little beauties from the Postie today 😃 although I did get stung for £20 customs tax on them 😡 worth it though.

    They are RC4WD Humvee billet aluminium wheels, they are very close in style to the original wheels which is what I was after but add some much needed weight down low.

    im hopefully going to take the Mog out for it’s first proper run tomorrow, so I will see how the original tyres perform before fitting them to the new wheels because there is a million screws for each wheel, so if I decide to get new tyres I haven’t got to spend half my life taking them apart again 🤣 Thinking of getting a set of PitBull Rock Beasts and Crawler Innovations dual stage foams, anyone got any experience with these tyres and foams?

    Thanks for taking a peek

    Rock beasts are one of the best looking tires but for me don’t work that well except for deep wet mud. I think they take a while to bed in and then they do their thing.

    Thanks Mark, yeah I have heard they take a bit to break in but then they’re really good.

    Took the Mog out for its first real run today and I’m pleased to report it performed really well, went with a friend who has a TRX4 and the Mog went everywhere his did with no real effort, mud, sand, ruts, tree roots, water, steep inclines and descents, it tackled the lot (sorry no pics, way too busy having fun) the stock tyres were quite impressive, the only thing they didn’t really like was wet leaves, so not sure what to do now 🤔

    Looking good, I’ve found Rock Beasts to be good all round tyres onces broken in, they look great too.

    I’ve decided to go for the Rock Beasts, ordered them yesterday, so just waiting for them to wing their merry way over from America, hopefully won’t get stung on the customs tax this time 🙄.
    A friend and I went out on the trails again today, another 4 hours of great fun, the Mog performed great again, this time vs a SXC10 and a HPI Ventura
