    Hi there,

    I guess, I’m not the only Guy who have more then one Rigs on the Road. So, in this Thread I will show my new Rigs, my old Rigs and their often rather minimal changes or improvements.
    I Hope, you enjoy this potpourri.

    ——
    Starting with a “slight” modificated Slash 4×4, two Years ago. Bored with all the plastic and lexan, I’ve tried a little more steamish rig.




    Drive-Train and Suspension from the Origin. Brazed Steel-Tube-Frame with lot of copper and other stuff. (Notice the about 35 year old ship propeller as sparewheel-holder. true to the motto “you should not throw anything away” 🙂 )

    Build at my start on metal-handling and before my owning of a lathe and a mill, the finish is rather rustic.

    Today it is still hanging on the Wall and waiting to get refurbished.

    Regards

    Ralf

    I love a wonky D90 🙂  Your’s is great, just the right amount of scale add-on’s. Looks like you got the brittle-plastic wing mirrors too though!

    Doesn’t matter where you place, as long as you had fun 🙂

    25DDA226-3C63-4825-9AD6-14ED791D6167Indeed, fun is more important than places, but a little bit ambition isn‘t wrong.

    Btw: Fun. Today I‘ve great fun with my biggest Rig so far. After over a year long rest in the garage I‘ve reactivated my Oil-Field-Truck. Astonishingly just a few minor, decorative issues coming up, but all major tecnical features working well.

    And again I‘m fascinated that this 90lbs Monster runs absolutely noiseless.

    Some cargo is still on his way 🙂

    Looks stunning. 40kgs though? Wow!

    Yep. 90 percent scratch. Only the wheels, motors, elo ( amongst other things 7 esc‘s 🙂 )  and the frontwinch are not .

    Built from  some web photographs  and the key-dimensions from a foremost brochure.  Its almost exact 1:10. that means 350mm wide and 1200mm long.

    Material is steel (profiles and sheets) and some brass. At this time I didn‘t have a lathe or a mill, so the appearence is very rustic. 🙂

    A big challenge was the articulated steering(electric) . I need three versions, each bigger and stronger than the last.

    I’m especially proud about the full functionally gin-pole. It can raise and collapse only through the power of his main winch.

     

    max lift capacity with frontwinch as anchor will be roundabout 25 kgs (I don‘t try it so far )

     

    Lift and move with a cargo of 10-15kgs – the normal weight of a 1:10-truck – is confirmed.

    Regards

    The Day after I mounted the snorkel I‘ve

    tried it out. It works. The motor runs even under water 😀

    But it‘s a bit slippery in the mud 😀

    So I need rubber boots , a D 110 and a Mog to get it out….

    At least a nice little rescue action.

    At the ESC some guys sway me to buy a mst cfx. And there it is:

    3E48EDA9-03A8-4AED-B1BE-7E8608A51646

     

    Together with a 1080 esc and an unused babyblue tamiya pajero 2-door it will be a   secondary project to the trial-car.

    goal: at least one place better in the esc-trophy than this year with the D90 🙂

     

    The pajero :

    C86DE296-C8FB-45DD-9BBD-AE5D44AE0D18

    First thoughts about styling going to make a pickup.

    We will see… 🙂

     

    Any suggestions about Styling are welcome.

    Regards

    Ralf
