Default Headquake's wooden trucks 2011

Hi guys. I've been doing lots of scale building over the last few years and i've watched alot of your builds too.
I joined this forum 2 years ago but my registration didn't work and i couldn't post. I wasn't sure what to do about it so i gave up and just watched.

I recently got it sorted out thanks to a nice Admin and am finally able to post here.

I just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself. I may have met some of you on other forums, theres some amazingly creative people on these boards.
Great to be inspired and inspiring to make these fun little rigs.

Anyhow, here's a few pics of some of my latest builds. I've been working mostly with pine wood to make these bodys. I carve them by hand with a dremel mostly. Bits of styrene are used as well in some of the details but its mostly all wood. I really like the weight and realistic movement of these builds, and theyre tougher than full styrene or abs bodys in a rollover. They all have steering drivers and custom chassis and get used alot.

My first wood body. 1989 Grand Wagoneer.

I've built all these in the last year and i've got a few more underway now as well.
I'm also constantly keeping up a shortcourse truck and backyard track, an acre of groomed scale trails, and a Wraith. I've got alot of time on my hands. Ha.
Sorry for posting so much in one thread but i'm excited to be able to now.

Thanks for checking it out and thanks for inspiring. I love making and playing with little trucks.

I make lots of videos too if youre interested. Headquake137's Channel - YouTube

Amazing builds!!
Love the weathered look!

Your talents in laying out and building bodies is one of the best.
All are wood?
Is this a talent picked up in your career choice or as a hobby!
When they are complete, are they in a few pcs on the chassis, or one pc then attached?

Glad to see you on here, I've seen your videos on you tube and was awestruck by your builds and detail. Often wondered why I hadn't seen you on RCC.

Welcome

Your skills are that of a teacher. You have a lot to offer this board. I watched the video of matts landy (very cool). The way the leafs springs are set up is perfect. Soft but not to soft. What is his set up and how much does the truck weigh. Thanks


Evan

Thanks alot for the warm welcome fellas.

I really like working with wood over styrene. I've have done full bodies with styrene as well and am in the process of turning a Pajero body into a 98 4runner, but i don't like working with plastic very much. Its handy for making small things but its brittle and when you have to sand it, the dust kills me. I had a bit of hobby experience with carving wood so i thought i'd give it a try making a whole body and i'm liking it. I use pine cause i find it the easiest to carve while being really strong once sealed and painted.

Before i start my next build, and instead of starting a new thread, here's a pic review of the Dodge A100 build, just to show you the process of how they come together.

Cheers.

You mentioned the dust, So I got to ask do you only use hand tools, or do you use a dremal drill as well. If that is all hand work I am even more blown away.
