New to the Scale scene build
Well this is my first scale truck. I have been looking into buying an Axial Dingo, found a Honcho roller on Used Naniamo instead. The truck came to me half painted, bare bones and a box with extra's(light buckets and odds and ends), just a rolling chassis.
So my learning how to build scale items started. I wanted to see how much I can make rather then buy it, some things need to be bought (winch, axe, jack and the shackles/hooks)
Nuff of the chatter, this is some of the stuff I came up with. Here we go
1st pic is just the truck sitting almost stock, in the front bumper you will see a chain I had made from cutting paper clips and bending them into links(Tow chain kinda...lol) On the side you will see a breather that I had made from an extra piece of the plastic holder for the parts. I cut it and shaved it to resemble a breather then adding a light bucket filled with fuzzy velcro to the top for an extra bit of look. Added painted light buckets to the bumper and ta-da the front is almost done.
Next pic is the Lift plates I had made, to help lift it a bit, I had an issue with the Servo horn screw hitting the cross member under the batt hold down. I used a piece of steel plate shaped it then drilled it out to allow me to move the shocks around. Painted black and ta-da lift done. Sorry for the fuzzy pic, camera would not focus.
Now lets see the height to this PEPSI can ! (My wife forgot to buy more COKE)
