Default JJRC custom zombie build.

New project. Taking a JJRC Q64 and making a zombie survivor escape vehicle. First off I gutted all the stock electronics & upgraded the ESC / servo & transmitter /receiver. Next I am modding the interior & cab to accommodate 3-3/4 figures.

Which figure did You use?

I used a Thunderbirds Kayo. But the Star Wars 3.75” Figures look correct too, despite the truck being more like 1/20 scale than 1/16, or even 1/18. A slightly repainted 3.75” Han Solo, or Jyn Erso should look properly “zombie apocalypse” like also.

My second MAN Kat is going to get the Post-Apocalypse treatment too. These trucks just scream for something like that. I also have a GAZ ( edit: Ural ) Comm-truck on order, and am hoping that big rear cabin will fit the MAN chassis without looking too weird. Probably will. Chassis’ are all the same for the 6x6 trucks.

(By the by, don’t You just loooove that big space behind the cabin? I stuffed a full-size Turnigy sound&light module, a speaker, the receiver, esc and some other bits&bobs in it. All stuck on the inside with industrial strength velcro, so as to simplify tinkering)

Haha, great minds think alike. I have specific action figures called Zombie Lab which I will use. Yea the large cabin is perfect to hide all the electronics.
