I've got a vacuum former with its name on it Now I just need the cab :thumbsup:The answer is simple, don't go so fast. Except if they built it right, 1/8 scale speeds still yield 1/8 scale forces. Damn you mathematics!
If memory serves me, that SBU body kit is no longer available new. Would be nice to acquire one and make some clones, perhaps in a doka.
These 1/8 scale trucks remind me of the guys building scale supercharged nitromethane V8's. Rather simple mechanics but the key is materials and fabrication, takes time to get the designs just so. Anyone want to tackle building a 1/8 scale OM352 to go with this truck?
Hope not....just call me Martin.Mr. Model Guy (is that his name now?)
Working in order to get some cash... what does or did he do when not doing this...
Yep but some 20+ years ago... as there seems to be some predisposition to the mechanical arts.
Nope, it simply had been a childhood dream.I suspect this guy is in some other way involved with unimog.
Not quite correct. These CAD drawings are from another modeller who's 1/8 scale Mog can be found on my web page when you click on "Uni v. E.Wursten" in the menu on the left. I usually sketch my drawings on the backside of an envelope or similar.... ... for E40 he offers a CD with cad drawings for the 1/8 scale SBU
