Default Mercedes Unimog 826 Trials Rig...

Well here is my Unimog. After quite a bit of re-building Im finally happy with it.

















Still needs some minor finishing detailing but for the most parts its done.

I really like it! What chassis did you use or is it scratch built?
I like the worn look too!

The body assembly sits on a highlift chassis modded with an AX10 tranny.

Yeah Keith. It needed some finishing. If you still want it the price just went up a bit... LOL


I got the body from a guy on Scale4x4 in Singapore. These bodies show up on the forums every now and then. Tamiya and Dickie both offer the same cab but with a little more detail.

Nice mog! It's tough to make a u500 look cool as RC, but you did it!

Maybe paint the seats? ;)

The interior was all tan plastic. I already painted the seats. They are blue for a reason. Its an homage to a friend of mine who got me into scale RC ( Excitebox on Scale4x4 ) He did a TTTT MAN 5T with blue seats. I think they look pretty rad in blue "vinyl".

Thanks for the compliments. Im really loving this truck. I also just finished my 1.9 XRRA rock buggy which matches the Mog...
