    Thanks!

    Now a small detail that it’s almost invisible but wanted to do it anyway

    Each road wheel arm has a piece atached to the hull where the axle pivots

    So printed 8 of these:

    OD paint to cover it all

    These were meant to be bolted on but will try with glue only, for now

    My goal of closing off the drivetrain it’s closer to finish.Needed something on top to keep away dirt and sand

    First idea was a standard cover but started to mess with the 3d printer and decided to do a more elaborate clear cover to see the gears working(might sound like a joke but many non-rc people who see this truck don’t understand how this truck moves or why it needs 2 motors…)

    Then,put some rubber over the sheetmetal to cover 2 previous holes from the first gearboxes and to supress some noise

    And a small rubber lip on the cover to keep sand and dirt away

    The M548 often came with the winch to load cargo,mainly ammo

    I thought mine would look more complete with it so…3D printed the I-beam and the winch:

    It’s held in place with small zip-ties:

    It has a chain, only needs a hook or a D-ring

    This little thing keeps getting better and better. The cargo crane came out really nicely.
