    Coming along very nicely and you’re right, I had no idea it was that big!  This is going to be incredible.

    Thanks. It’s big but still real 1/10.It’s to look correct next to my Unimog although they look different scales when next each other
    The bad thing is that 1/10 it’s an odd scale for a tank. Almost everything is 1/14

    Had the chance to make the hull. Had to bent a 0.8mm aluminium sheet and now with the angle grinder I’m making the last bends. Rivets to hold the corners and epoxy to reinforce

    The truck it’s very dirty because of handling it at the shop to fit the hull

    Front:

    Bottom:

    Gearboxes in place:

    Not having the “hull” done, delayed progressing on the body. With the hull, everything is figured out.

    Another view of it,to show better how much space it has for transmission and eletronic

    mAh for days….(actually, I’ll use only 1 battery, 2 if the stress it’s too much)

    Was planing to do these “fenders” as part of the hull but they were looking bad:

    This section was also to be in aluminium but because the hull is removable, there will be gaps showing, so I enclosed it in PVC. Now it’s easier to add details

    Then, made this bulkhead(?) with service panels for the engine

    This time didn’t do much visible. Lots of sanding and trimming. The most visible chance was the floor of the cargo bay. Had the piece cut from the beginning and now it found it’s place

    First, some reinforcements :
    I

    Then, a kind of hatch to change batteries:

    Maybe some magnets to close properly:

    Tailgate on:

    This is coming along great!

    Is that Foamex you’re using? It looks thicker and different to Styrene. I just noticed your curved rear window part and it makes me think I might attempt to do the same thing to make the curved cab-back for a D90 pick-up..

    Thanks! This stuff has several names like Komacel. Is pvc sheet. It’s easier to find here and i prefer it over styrene for larger parts. Has a disadvantage of not liking strong sunlight

    Well, I can’t leave the truck unattended…Seriously,cat?

    I was figuring out how to close the doors. Seems to work this way:

    I wasn’t liking the squareness of the rear. Looking at more photos, realize that was a mistake. Redone it with angled sides:

    Got the cushions for the seats:

    The footrests:

    And the levers to steer:

    Tried running a gearbox on the hull. The gearbox is loud and the metal hull amplify that. Guess I’m not needing a sound generator 🙂

    Hi,

    I had trouble solving how to do these small mounts for straps:

    Well,the easier way was designing them and print:

    This mounts are for holding tools on the 1:1. An axe, picaxe,sledgehammer and shovel. Quit of doing the picaxe because there wasn’t enough space for it

    First one:

    Second:

    Third:

    Thanks guys!

    off to work,now to the small opening under the tailgate:

    The real one opens but I kept it shut, more simple and allows more space inside:

    Only the D-rings are 3d printed. Something new to me because it’s printed in one piece but they rotate

    glued the roof and did the opening of the hatch

    When the windows were cut, didn’t notice that the real ones they weren’t square. Small detail but bothered me lately…

    So I chamfered the top corners
