Default ANTIGACHO BP Custom GenX/SCX10 UNIMOG

Hello from Mexico

This is going to be a boring thread, basically, because this project is a long term building that I have in mind, maybe this is going to take the rest of this year

I'm actually still working with the building of my first crawler, a hilux truggy but I cannot resist e temptation to build another, this time an UNIMOG

This is going to be very expensive for me, I live in Mexico so is impossible to find the parts that I need at my local hobby shop so I have to pay always expensive shipping cost, also the Mexican peso is so devaluated VS US dollar so I can not invest a huge quantity on a single order


The following pics are the inspiration for my build






I just order a couple of parts the next post will be the "Vehicle Build Sheet" to keep a record of the parts that I already ordered

I'm a newbie on this hobby but I am totally hooked to RC car building, I'm never going to buy a RTR again,

I will appreciate your suggestions and tips for this building, searching online and youtube are my only source of information for this hobby, the shared building experience on this forum has been really helpful for me, I really envy the huge RC community that exists in the USA and how you help each other on this hobby

Kudos to some builders that I have read before pulling the trigger for this build

Angus_Beef

KillerBlackbird



finally, sorry about my bad English skills

Welcome. I worked out of Tabasco for several years and can see how logistics could be an issue. I spotted this in Ciudad del Carmen. Guy bought it in the D.F. and was headed to a resort in Cancun.


If you can find anyone with a 3d printer it would help out as well.

Real UNIMOG should be an incredible vehicle, I have seen videos of how these vehicles perform and wow! that blows my mind, but definitely 1:1 is a hobby for rich people,

As you said 3d printer would help, there are some places in my city where 3D printers are available, but I haven't try that option

I know nothing about CAD designing but I have noticed some websites were 3D files are available for sale

Check Thingverse and a there’s a few other sites available. May not have anything specific for the Unimog body but you can find some for specific a chassis and some scale accessories.
