Default 1:10 Stupid Scale Bronco Build

Dont expect to see a 2 week build in this thread. Also dont expect regular updates. Will be using K-44 axles, GCM t-case, Disruptor tranny, fxr spd control, DX7 spektrum radio, rc4wd Rangie steelies. Most everything will be 1 offs with a few scale parts along the way.

first step is to model a real 1:1 frame~ (in 1:10 size!)
First few cuts.....


Lining things up


a few more cuts


final: cut it a bit short on the rear end- I believe I will be cutting another frame, this was just a test run.


Will be getting with my friend for welding it all up, I am going to pick up some 20 guage sheet steel (or something close) and work on folding/ bending up the coil buckets, body mounts, and fabbing some spring hangers. If any one has some good ideas on how to do this stuff post up. I am all ears.

L.R.

Awesome job! I will be watching this for sure. Definitely what i wanted to do for my scale build going on now in 1.9.

I really like the technical side of this build.

I'll pick up some 30 gauge(10mil) steel tomorrow the 26 stuff I have now is a bit too stiff to try and bend the 90* angles into. Not complicated bends just tough to do on such a small scale. The best thing I have seen online is the galvanized round pipe for ac ducts and things. I will have to pop it apart then I can cut out what I need. Will also pick up some cutting disks tomorrow too!

I'll be curious to see how this goes. I've got a '71 Bronco and have been been seriously contemplating making a scale replica. I had been planning to bend the frame rails, hadn't thought of cutting and welding them.

Got some small stuf dome today- worked with some tin, and made a body mount shock looks great, and started on a scale shock mount for the front. Will try and get some pics up tomorrow.

A few updates for you~
body mount bracket, coil bucket, and shock mount. this is what you start with to make the "scale parts"


just the shock tower- this will be made a bit taller than scale I think(and no one will notice)



the paper cut out version





The real tab next to the paper part-


thepaper part is a bit larger(on purpose) the metal is true to scale as it matches myy schematic perfectly!


last one



Will tinker some more today-

quick update~ the front drivers side body mount was a PITA! got it pretty close I think~



I dont think it has enough angle to it, but again it is close.

It's the PITA parts of the build that make it different.
Your frame idea is cool and interesting, will be following this build.
Wishing you a lot of inspiration and very little perspiration.

its been slow going as I have been mostly tinkering with radius arm stuff. the K44 "looks" cook untill you start working with it- then it becomes a pita. not very well machined imo- It'll be ok, but it could be LOTs better. need to get a body and some rims and go from there~ like I said it isnt gonna be an overnight build.

Hey excellent work have you got there, I like it!!!
Just curious…where did you get those chassis drawings??? Are they from a 1:1 Bronco and then you made it 1:10 to beginning your copy chassis???
I’d need chassis drawings for a F100 67-72’ model. I want to make my 1:10 scale of my 67’ F100 and I only found a good site FORDification.com where there are lots of drawings but not as you have…they are really what I’m looking for
Any help welcome…and keep your hands making those nice 1:10 parts!!! Really nice!!!
