Default TF2 VDJ79 (LC70) Build From Down Under!

Finally got my hands on a LC70 body for my Trail Finder 2! So keen.

I have the same model but in a 1:1 in the shed, So I'm stoked to be able to build something to scale, or near scale

The plan is to build a new tray, and brush bars. Has anyone got any ideas what use, I've had a lot of experience with brake line and brazing, But I'm keen to try something new...? Brass??

So far I've ordered ne Mickey Thompson ATZ P3 and sunnies, RC4WD bar (D40 to be modified).





Here's my 1:1


Cheers!

Both trucks look great !

As for the bumper you may want to see if you can find measurements on the Gelande bumper it looks real close to the one you have on your full size truck.

Anyone else noticed the wheel base is off slightly? Or is it just me...?

Your 1:1 is Rad, RC4WD sells the updated spring perches to correct the WB issue. However if you replicate your bed I wouldnt worry about it much

I'm envious of you having the real deal. Wish they'd sell the 70 in the U.S. My only option is to import one that's 25 years old.

I changed the wheelbase on mine as well. I made some spring perches from styrene myself. Details are in my build log.
