Honcho Cap's painted


Falas galera, mais uma pra compartilhar com vocês.Espero que os seus saiam mais bonito pelo menos.
Pra manopla vai precisar de mola, termoretrátil, cotonete e durepoxi...e pra ficar bonitim, tinta.
Tá lá,



Da uma esticada na mola, eu fiz com alicate mesmo.


Corta o cotonete nas pontas e cola a mola em um dos lados, eu usei um parafuso na outra ponta por que eu quis.


Fiz uma bola de durepoxi e botei no parafuso.


Depois de pintado e passado o termo na mola.


Um cambiozinho


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pra quem ainda não viu meu Auto Meter lunar
RC Elétrico - o fórum de automodelismo elétrico! • Tópico: - [Tutorial] - AutoMeter Lunar escala, ou quase isso...
Agora apresento-lhes o AutoGage miniatura.

Vai precisar de um energético fullpower e um motorzinho escovado de carrinho de brinquedo.
Corta a tampa da garrafa do energético e recorta no contorno do desenho, naipe do que eu fiz aqui.


Arranca todo miolo do motorzim e deixa só a carcaça pra usar.


Encaixa um no outro e ta feito heheh....


O AutoMeter pai e o filho.


Abraço.

Fala galera, tava sobrando uns hashi de madeira então resolvi tentar fazer um hi-lift, não ficou lá essas coisa mas eu gostei.
1 Hashi


Aí usei uma microretifica para fazer os furos e cortar 2 stick's.


Usei Durepoxi para fazer os acabamentos.


Aqui já pintado, pena que a foto saiu tremida só percebi quando passei pro computador.


Aí usando no Honcho.


Falou !

Eu fiz uma paradinha aqui mas não sei nem o que é...
Tinha 2 tubinhos de plástico aqui pensei em pintar de azul e por o rótulo da NOS, mas não tinha a tinta azul.









Eu pintei um de prata e o outro de vermelho.




Botei umas correntinhas em volta.E voilá, não faço ideia do que seja mas ta aí acho que vo por na caçamba do Honcho.
Não liguem pra tinta toda torta eu não tinha pincel então usei cotonete para pintar


Tirei aquele baratz de cotonete que tinha antes e liguei os fios tudo duma vez só botei um termo alí pra ficar menos feio.



Issae acho que vou deixar de enfeite também.

Melhorando um pouquinho o visual do AutoMeterzinho, cortei as rebarbas de alumínio.

Made a snorkel for my honcho out of some rubber tube and a spare light bucket with some mesh pushed into it.

I am learning not to throw anything away..got an action figure off ebay for 99cents and used the 2 legs packs for the trailer and the backpack I used to create a "medical pack" for the Unimog.

With a little imagination you can use just about anything to make scale stuff.

There were a few used Co2 cartridges laying around, so after a little head scratching this is what happened.

Cut the bottom off of one, and trimmed the neck a little bit on both, then got out the scrap styrene....





Had enough to build a little tool cart.



The Oxy Acetylene rig is still a WIP, but it's getting close to being done.



I'll post more pics later.

You have regulators in your scrap styrene? Can I have some of your scrap?

Default Winch Line Bind



I know I'm not the first one to have this problem, and I know I'm not the first one to come up with a solution. ALL credit for the idea goes to chino63 . Couldn't really find a thread like this, so thought I would post one up.

This is the delema



Your winch line pulls over the edge of the spool, between it and the gearbox, and gets so bound up that the only way to get it out is to disassemble the whole winch. This can be a huge pane! I even damaged my line trying to yank it out, so now it had to be cut shorter. MadDogRC sells a 3racing winch upgrade kit that is awesome.

http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/scale...re-scale*.html

I would have bought this if I didn't already have most of the parts. Couldn't justify the $24 for just the piece of plastic that chino63 makes. So I made my own.



I looked around for some packaging from anything that would come close to the thickness between the gearbox and the spool, to "fill the gap". My stock honcho lexan body came close, but I wasn't too quick to cut that up. I ended up using the bottom of a butter tub "I can't beleive its not butter." Cut it to shape, cut the hole for the gearbox shaft to go through, and put winch back together.



Not sure if "scale accessories" was the right place for this. A winch is kind of a scale accessory, but can also be a necessary tool, like say, a tire.

Having a working winch is cool! Having a winch with the line stuck 2 feet out, not so much

The moment you bind your winch line you'll wish you'd done it. I kept going on thinking "it hasn't happened yet, I'll be ok...." WRONG

It kept happening on my winch also. I made a shim out of a scrap piece of lexan I had laying around. Since then It has not bound up so bad that it could not be pulled free without disassembling the winch. This is definitely a great mod.

I think the problem is also the roller fairlead is to wide allow the line to run off of the spool.
