RC Willys Jeep Dragon 1/6

Post by jeepfriend » Sun Jun 21, 2009 5:23 am

hi guys
i´m a jeep model and actionfigure collector from germany.
i have shared my model on some figure and RC boards but i think
this board is also the right place for sharing and one of the best places
after i see this category.

here on this links can you see two from five clips from my RC jeep(not finished)

Outstanding work jeepfriend. 8)

Watching the video, it looks like you may need to model some scale tire chains. :D

thanks gerrykan

the problem on the first clip are the hard tires (SOTW) on one side and the low weight on the rear axle on
another side and the front axle is not locked.this axles works with real differential.
i will not lock the front axle.
in this time is a speaker (also in second clip)under the back seat but i need some more weight.
most weight over front axle include battery
i wait for better soft tires

An absolutely beautiful model! Can you distribute some of the weight down the back end by putting some cells inside the back of the jerrycan, or a ring of small cells inside the spare tyre? Or inside the wheel arch toolboxes, or perhaps a crate of K-rations in the back? Can I say it once again - you've built an outstanding model.
