    Well, after a few years pick and shovel trying to get one of the two loose chassis of this very exclusive version of Rcmodelex that I asked for two friends, one of them is still in process and has passed through the hands of other bend work of frind and this one I have finally managed to buy it, along with all the material in the photos, gear head rims ,1.55 tires, pitbull tires… two hpi planetary reduct , mirrors and rubber snorkel rcmodelex etc etc, all brand new, he even gave me the threaded rod and aluminum tube for make the links… tamiya cabin with rc4wd bed…. Well I leave the photos and you know … soon and little by little the progress:

    And now , the most tedious task , at least for me , of this project . Although I will take an rc4wd cabin, because this one from tamiya looks like a colander, there are now no Marlin version beds, so I have to cut and paste, since it is not the first thing I do, I already know what to do and what not to do, Let’s see if it’s better than the last one hehehehehe

    I have taken advantage of the weekend to do things, test suspension, make links and other things, to see if what is missing is coming and I continue with the bodyworka





    With the material I have , I am doing what I can hehehe any progress is good , even if it does not follow the logical order hahahaha

    Electronics on your site, as I have links made that there does not bother me


    And some internal wheel arches , the rear ones finished , the front ones I have the molds made , I am missing the plastic I know I have run out




    The front ones are already drying

    I love a classic Hilux build and this one is looking awesome. Seems like a cool chassis and your inner arches are brilliant. Can’t wait to see what you do with the paint

    More parts have arrived, for now I have been able to adjust front links including panhard and its support.
    Definitely, I will put smaller tires, it will go very low and with Currie axles, with the pitbulls it rubs when going wider than with yota axles.
