Great job on that engine. Those injector lines look perfect.

Thanks!




While the fake engine and the rest of the parts are getting done outside the car, one more important thing has to be done: make it run properly!

The cab has new mounting points(4 screws inside the inner fenders) and attached the bed on the chassis.











The bed tips to change batteries, that sit above the middle axle,between the frame rails


And off to the trail!!

You did a great job on making this build, copying the detail of the real unimog frame, how the springs attach is great and axle portals too....

The only thing id change is a little bit bigger tires for 1/10th scale look like 2.2's rc4wd micholin tires, the stock unimog tires is 42-46"

A little more work on the engine






Mounted it and the air filter. Needs a couple more parts to fill this bay

While the bay is slowly being completed, did something else:









This printed wheel is a copy of the Gmade SR02 already in the truck but thin as possible to fit under the bed as the real one








Just needs a mount welded on the chassis
durok, HumboldtEF and Steve g like this.

Already had a fuel tank, done years ago and like I feel my skills improved, re-did it




















Not in the final position (hot glued in place). Have to come up with some kind of support

Hi guys!

I'm on "vacaciones" and can't work on trucks but I've got a 3d printer so can stockpile on parts to apply later

I'm fairly new to printing and 3d modeling so have to start with simple stuff,like a license plate:






quick paint:




A battery is also useful to fill the engine bay. This one it's not my design

Did more 2 parts to fill the engine bay:

This coolant reservoir:







And upgraded my old radiator:













After adding everything to the bay, will hide the blinker's wires....
