I've always suggested some twin force axles would look great on here. Maybe I'll get potter to get some one of these days.

My buddy does brazing at his own pace, I'll get it back when the time is right. You guys need to cut him some slack. Dont you know you never rush an artist?

I still have this beast collecting dust but its on the back burner because all the locals started building 1:6 jeeps and they told me my 1:4 jeep wouldnt be invited to their parties. So I'm building a 1:6 scale before I finish this.

Year 6...

This sounds strangely familiar...

These "locals" wouldn't happen to be raindeer, would they?

I would show up with one of these then. Probably end up not getting invited again but it truly is is 1/6 scale. The trick is finding one!


((((((It uses a 16.5'' wheelbase)))))

So...I don't like to critique...but I like to add my .02 when a build interests me. And I understand this project is on the backburner...and I wouldn't ask if it wasn't so close to being done.

Do you think you will get enough wheel travel with those shocks?

Some people really insist on the lower links being parallel to the ground...I'm not one of those people...but it looks like the lower links are pretty steep?

Can't we let the cat out the bag, or should I say The Brazer out of the closet?

Doesn't the blue star change things now?

BLue star changes everything.

i built that cage. and i had fun doing it. And i am happy that people can know it now.

wish he had gotten the truck back sooner from me though. or he would be 18 months farther into the dust collection.
