Default Deerhurst's D21 Build

First time Ive done a build thread I believe. Ive done "look at this cool painted body" but never a full build. I fully expect this to take forever and to not go anywhere close to as planned.



So far the plan is to print a Nissan D21 body and put it on a chassis. I have 2 choices, a HiLift chassis or an Ascender chassis. The Hilift Hilux recently took a big tumble when I fell off a small cliff and it tumbled down behind me so it needs some TLC. Im leaning towards using the Ascender.



My inspiration is this:





So, itll be a MiniMe of my 1:1. Nissan bodies are hard to find.



Wheels will be a set of left over RC4WD Wagon Wheels. Tires are undecided. Maybe Proline KO2s. To leaf or not to leaf?



It probably wont handle great since the body will weigh a ton. The wheelbase will be quite long. Easily a couple inches longer than the HiLift.



Since my 3D printer is fairly small, 220x200x250, I had to split the cab and the box into 4 pieces each. About 23hours a piece. Then sand, prime, sand, prime, sand, prime and hopefully paint!



So far, I have a corner....





Lots to do! It will evolve as it goes. Need to order a couple more rolls of filament to keep printing.

Cab is 50% printed and still a long ways off from being mounted. The seam needs to be filled and the entire thing sanded, primed, sanded, primed.....etc. Hoping to print another quarter of the cab today.

Cab is 75% printed and almost half way through the last piece. Its gonna be really big.

My Tamiya HiLift Hilux in the background. The width of the Nissan is based off the width of the Tamiya lid.

Looking good - I briefly had a brand new 2wd D21 in black, with brushed aluminum 5-spoke wheels and BFG Radial T/A tires.

They're really nicely styled trucks...

I like the little D21 too. Got the entire cab printed at this point. I need to take photos. It's big. It's the right width for the Tamiya HiLift. Probably 6 days in printing just for the cab. Plan to start the box this weekend.
