Default Jim's Specter! O.o

EDIT - If your reading this for the first time, I am putting the link to the vendor page here.

Thought I would go ahead and start the official Specter thread. The first render here still has some obvious errors, but it's close enough to share and start the thread. The segments are mostly 0.125" now, but I may go to 0.100" in the roof section. I'm leaving off the bumpers till I get the chassis mated with the drive train. There are a few nudges here and there but very close.

This looks fantastic! Can we see mock-ups with wheels and guts?

Here is the latest revision. It has several changes that really finish it off perfectly. The next step is to add the upper link mounts and the tranny mount. This one was relatively easy to put together.

Thanks for all the good words everyone.

It is pretty much done. Now onto making the skins.

3D Systems was not able to make their promised December 28th ship date. In fact I am still waiting for a solid ship date. I purchased the new MAX version that wasn't "released" until mid December so I knew it was going to be close anyway. :P

Things take time damn it...

I will post more full renders today if I can.

Sitting a little high, not sure why yet. It's got the mini-t? rear springs soft in front, and medium in rear. I will check the spring lengths and make sure the servo clears in full compression. These renders are using stock McRC axles and tires. We will be adding the trekker parts and aftermarket tires to the renders soon.

I like it alot too!

I wonder how this would look? Just thinking the curves would break up the square lines a little and also look like rounded fender wells? Just toying around

I'm not sure what photobucket does to my files. They are 1920 pixels wide when uploaded. I could email you something?

Hi Dan, yeah you got the idea. I will achieve the effect in the rear at least with the skins. I'm going to do this stocker, then one with the rear modified like everyone does to the Wraith, then start on some smooth rounded lines on a southern buggy style.

Thanks again for all the interest.

I have cash on a card as soon as you print them! Sign me up. I have my own chassis design coming along, but I'll build one of these too!
