That video is awesome! I like the freightliner too, how cool.

What trailer is that? All metal, like the Zon.Com ones?
Driving and loading the cars onto the trailer made me question if a mini servo could be mounted to the trailer to operate the ramps in unison. My idea is a longer servo arm for more "throw" of a cable for the ramps. No idea how to communicate with the servo though.

Looks like a load of fun, but you need a law enforcement car/truck with all that wrecking y'all did!

thanks mate the kids and I had a Ball making it

The Trailer is a 1/32 Oz Legends all metal trailer, They are made by a Aussie company and are only about AUD$17 on ebay, For the price they are really good, with folding ramps and basic suspension, but they are heavy, ideally id love to mould it in resin and just have metal hinges.

I reckon, the ramps could be controlled remotely, but been metal it would need a powerful motor and might be hard to hide?

haha ok, so its not just me..... ive been saying to my wife i need a police car... nothing like a good old slow speed chase lol

oops..... I forgot the latest project im working on... here is some mock up pics... Id love to have it that low, but i dare say it will end up been jacked up like a jeep




It started as a 1/32 kit but I just was not happy with it... I dident like the paint (first time airbrushing) and the mirrors and wheels really bugged me, so rather than trying to make it look nice ive gone the opposite way....

haha yeah man,,, but i keep mixing it up lol

I was playing around last night with my Death Race themed car. I was adding some scratches and bullet marks....
But then i realised Humbrol 073 kinda looks like dry blood..... so i went nuts lol
So yeah... now im like,,, do i make a death race car with guns or a carmageddon style car with blades, spikes and human remains?

Here we go guys my little 1/32 truck is still coming along ... little update: Working trailer suspension YAY! (fireworks in the back ground)
Its completely dodgy and the axles are literally super glued on... but it works
In the end I use some 3.7mmx0.1mm coil spring from a vintage traxxas nitro engine to make some shackle-less and equaliser-less leaf springs.
so yeah... now ive got it working, I just need to order some fasteners, mount it properly and pass it onto the durability testers (my kids)
