Default 1/6 1960's CJ-6

Posted this up on Scale4x4, and I wanted to post here too. I can't post pics yet so here is a link. Tell me what you think.

http://www.scale4x4rc.org/forums/showthread.php?t=43773

Scale handmade T6 chassis
Killer Xfer case
T Rex axles (recently modified)
Scale shocks/boots
Planning on R2 trans (prev 2 spd went in another build)


Still trying to work out the wheels - I really want a set of the Willys Jeep wheels for this.

Opted out of the Rok-Lox in the pics. Now using Plutos.

I wish I had a 64th of that talent. That is amazing. How long have you been building?

Thanks for the kind words folks. Started the dash before the build off started, so this is the last thing I added.

Are you talkin about those cheesy Nitto's? They were from a NB crawler. They are only on there for mock up...too wide and interfere with the leaf springs. New and different to be added later.


Just a little distraction

What kind of wire did you use to make the seats? Braze em all together? or is it plastic round stock glued? Looks great...

Actually they are made from 5/32 brass tube, bent and soldered up. I don't think styrene would hold unless it was larger, then it wouldn't look scale.

Thought this one deserved to be brought back to the top so it isnt forgotten about. What a great build.
