    Hi there,

    my current project? A fantasy car. Offroad. In a 1920 roadster style. Build from scratch with five scx10(I) axles.  2.2 tires, Hobbywing fusion motor and servonaut transmitter/receiver

    Tube frame from 6x1mm stainless steel tubes.

    Why? Just for fun 🙂

    It will be a base car and an appendix

    The base car gets a tatra style chassis with two front axles.

    A first shape giving  bending was today the cockpit border. it will be a two seater with a looooooong bonnet 🙂

    my guess was it will be some kind of farm truck but no…

    definitely no farm truck 😀

     

    while waiting for the stainless tubes, i’ve made the front transfer case with it’s three exits (two normal exit for front and rear axle, third exit to reach the appendix)

    First step: the gears. 18 tooth modul1 with keyways. Handmade of course 🙂

    All parts together

    assembled

    slightly polished. It will be a bling bling car 🙂

    Now it’s time for many supports struts to get it strong and rigid.

    Hi,

    just the headlights are missing to complete the front part.

    tubes: stainless steel

    panels: steel

    rivets: aluminium

    panels are glued to some of these little holders.

    Regards
