    Not much of a progress, printed the 3rd axle and it’s in place(need to take pics), 2nd axle is still being modeled. Didn’t have the time to sit and finish it properly.

    But I’ve made this:

    You may not remember but my steering was like this:

    It was to try to make it more scale and also hide the servo. Well, it kind of worked. Even with a 25kg servo, it seemed to lack torque and in bad spots, the servo just won’t turn the wheels. Besides, tie-rods hit each other.
    So, simple is better and now the servo is mounted on the bumper. Made 2 brass mounts and the servo is angled to clear the bottom of the cab and also the servo horn(+rod-end) clear the steering rod

    Hi people!

    Now that the 3rd axle is in place with proper links, tackled the most difficult axle, the 2nd. Figured the angle difference between the 2 shafts via basic prototypes and then did the full axle model

    This is one of halves:

    Late night work to get to this point:

    Unfortunately,couldn’t find a way to make a torquetube for the 3rd axle. A regular driveshaft will have to do…

    Thanks! It has been challenging but seeing move lifts me up

    thanks!

     

    final stretch:

    Fitted a new and stronger 1:5 planetary gearbox because the old one was too slow(1:9)

     

    And assembled almost everything to do some real world tests

    After this, I’ll disassemble everything to paint the chassis and mount the spare, fuel tank and exhaust

    Wow, that is superb, it works so well, fantastic job!  I love the filming as well, the camera in the back is inspired.  It looks so good in motion.

    Like I’ve said earlier, took it apart to fix some things and paint the chassis. Was to paint the wheels but paint ran out…Someone told to paint it black but…all chassis are black…

    Did the fuel tank mounts in TPU to bend instead of breaking like the old ones…

    I’m in the process of assemble each axle with proper bolts,gear mesh and correct tolerances. Also, I’m adding lights which are my Achilles heel. Not hard stuff but not a big fan 🙂

    As the first post of 2021, a small thing I’ve done some time ago and put aside until now. It’s 3D printed and the bends were done with heat.

    A curiosity:

    3D printing is a awesome tool but not everything can came out like it should. Sealed Bearings are tricky pieces and demand precision. On the first axles, used the Dremel to proper seat the pinion bearings but was much of a guesswork.To little and the axles halves doesn’t close, too much and the bearing gets loose

     

    Did this improvised cutter with the right diameter and spacing:

    Simply fit it and screw the halves while rotating the tool. There’s no chance of cutting too much

    There’s not much to do on this truck,besides finish the lights(which I’m doing in the right mood 🙂 )

    I’ve got some AK weathering pencils and wanted to try them. Saw the mirrors scratched from the trails and decided to apply some rust instead of touching up with OD green

    This is my first try to do rust

    The rust looks awesome, good job indeed.
