    There’s some awesome work going into this, those tools are unreal (or, in fact, very real!)

    Thanks..yes, there’s a lot of work and it’s only halfway 🙂 . But it’s not actually work because I’ve enjoyed doing everything. It’s my escape from everyday life

    This time,the task was making the hooks for the canvas. Was thinking in buying those tiny hooks for bras but then, i preferred to try do my won, only to see how it could look

    Well,the looks are important but it also has to move so I’ve made the hubs for the traction wheels:

    quick mockup:

    have to print the rest of the road wheels….

    One of the 10 road wheels:

    What this will be?

    there’s more than one kind of stack for this model. I went with this because it’s easier to add real smoke in the future

    This one is for the intake:

    Also made the bezels (?) around the stacks like the 1:1

    Quick mockup

    Next stage:

    metal on the floor for whatever reason

    Detail,those are M2s

    All assembled:

    were made in 4mm stainless steel rod, TIG welded and the brackets are from 12mm square tubing. Ran out of M2 nuts in the middle of the assembly

    Not really an update..

    I was thinking to put a sound generator so I had to search how a M548 sounded like. I was expecting a big diesel truck sound but…

    …holy cow, it’s like 100 angels riding chainsaws

    By the way, this is the only footage i’ve found of a M548 going fast:

    Talking about motors, adapted the 2nd one to the gearbox. The first was straightforward, this one was harder

    Next stage is assemble everything and setup the radio again now with twin motors,twin ESCs and 1 battery

    I think, without a exhaust pipe every motor sound like you describe it.

     

    Wich soundmodule you prefer?

    Btw: nice bending-work

    Hi scale people…

    Turned my attention to the tailgate now. Added the steel tow cable with all it’s mounts

    Sure it will look better all painted(and without excess glue) but i want to show it earlier. For the curious, there’s aluminium for the half circles and hooks , copper on the middle mount, brass on the cable ends and the cable itself it’s steel(a bike brake cable)

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Nice work.</p>
    ———-

    I know two Soundmodules.

    „Ess One“

    One great box. Sound very well for this little box

    and

    The Beier-Module

    https://www.beier-electronic.de/modellbau/produkte/usm-rc-2/usm-rc-2.php?sprache=gb

    Great sound lib but for own sounds too. And extremly flexible with tons of possibilities to switch lights and motors etc.

    Cheap? No, but worth every cent.

     

     

     

    Regards

    I had a small experience with the ESS. Sounded good enough but I just listened one of paid sounds so it was better than the free stock sounds

    The beier costs twice the ESS but the specs are great. But I’m afraid of spending that amount of money and not listen the sounds. Have you saw the video of the first test? This thing it’s loud 🙂

    Another stage:

    Working on the ring mount and legs for the .50.It’s a notorious feature that had to include..

    The ring it’s a 2 piece part that I’ve machined earlier. Could do it in 1 piece but this way, rotates 360º.

    First, the front legs

    Then,could do the rear ones

    The asymmetry on these is on purpose.For some reason the 1:1 it’s like this…

    Waited to next day to allow to epoxy to harden and added reinforcements,steps and cleaned the “welds”

    Only needs a bit of sanding,colour and better looking(and shorter bolts). I think I’m doing the .50’s mount next…
