    That is some fantastic work…

    It’s almost a shame to paint any of it. Will this one feature hydraulics?

    Thank you, guys, for your kind words.

    Hydraulic features are possible but unlikely. Because they are expensive and very sensitive in rough terrain. Rollovers are really bad.

    ———

    This body is really simple to build. No curves, really simple angles and no playful details.

     

    So todays work are the mudguards.

    Sheetmetal 0,5mm steel. sawed, bended and drilled. Mudflaps cut from an old motorbike inner tube.

    That‘s it. Two hours of fun in the shop.

    Hi,

    after two weeks at a rainy holiday in wales   the work on the ugly samil goes on.

    The Fenders gets her front panels, the turning lights and work begins on the grill  and the main winch

    Thank you.

     

    Last step before a first greater powder session was the hull for the winches and the rolling cages.

    0,3mm aluminium sheets. Some bending and bead rolling later:

    Powder Coating started. A bit of color  changes a lot of the impression

    Looks great, did you powder coat yourself, what equipment is required?

    Thank you, indeed, it seems so, but sometimes ….. 😀

    Anyway. I  see that I‘ve to do a greater Update to get you up-to-date.

    The cabin is almost ready to run. Just a few details are missing.

    8750E353-2161-4A1E-A7D2-FC08221E9EC2

    I made a different roof for the cabin because it will be a civil version of this military truck. So it didn‘t need a gun carriage on the top but rather a big lightbar , workinglights at the sides and a huge air condition.

    All six ESCs and the little bunch of other Electronics has taken their places and are wired.

    And today the first payload-back is roughed up, a simple Flatbed.

    Stay tuned for more…..

    A lot of little, more optical, things to do, but the main things doing very well.

    I‘m very pleased with this result.
