    Hi there,

    today I’m starting a new Project. I’ll try to build this little ugly guy

    Preferably in metal, of course.

    RECOVERY-AU-1-1-1024x768Kwe-2-1024x768

    I’ll build a civil version of this south african mine resistent tow truck.

    Some specs (metric)

    Length  7,82m

    width 2,45

    height 3,00

    tire height 1,25

    tire width 0,4

     

    Regards

    Ralf

    Man that is ugly, I think you should call it Pluto.  However I very much look forward to seeing you recreate it. 😉

    I drove one in 1989. The SAMIL 50 is essentially a Magirus-Deutz 232. Can’t wait to see this come together!

    At first as usual the basics. Setting up the ladder frame. Finding positions for axles and gearbox.

    Then starting the measurement of the few pics i‘ve found in the web.

    Now i can start with prototyping things to find out if my plan can work.

    To get really sharp edges I won’t bend the panels. To join them I will make cornerstones to set up correct angles for the panels. I.e. the angles from the roof to the sides and the frontpanel are 106 degrees.

    It’s a bit tricky to setup the mill but at least I‘m happy with my stones

    How do you will recreate all those curves? 🙂

    Curves? Where do you see curves?

     

    ———

    waiting for stuff is boring. So I made the decision to build a quick changeable back for different payloads.

    the crane will be a long job to do and I will drive this ugly guy. So the first payload will be an easier to build flatbed.

    Every payload gets his own Frame. The connection between the frames are these six snap-on things. Electric connectors are also in a snap-on way

    Both axles are originally with leafsprings

    I have only one tamiya set. So I built the second set from spring steel 7mm x 0,3mm

    Thank you.

    More Metalwork today. This ugly little guy get a big toolbox between cabin and payload area. The toolbox will be the rolling-cage of the truck. Second main reason for the box is, to hide the non scale thing of the great main winch and the outriggers.

    The box itself gets a spaceframe with a thin aluminium skin.

    At first, the bulky outriggers takes place. A little test

    The trick is the embedded gear racks in the poles

    Gorgeous! Those outriggers are brilliant.

    Very much looking forward to seeing the body come together, I have a lot to learn working with sheet metal.

    The Cabin gets his rear panel, the bonnet is finished and first details taking their places.
