Oh, I have some idea how long it might have taken. Excellent work.

This whole build has been quite fiddly. After this I'm building a RTR truck.



Not a whole lot going on with the Gipsy but I did work on the front fiddly bits.


Go pedal, stop pedal and misc. pedal.


Flexin' Friday. On a Sunday.

More fiddly bits.

Made some springs. For what you ask?


Oh, for that.


It's almost done!


I find myself sitting at the workbench opening and closing the doors instead of building. While having all these functional parts is fun my next build will have nothing of the sort.

Absolutely amazing build noob. Our world is going to come crashing down when you discover females and quit playing with toys.

Thanks Harry. Well, that's one of the reasons this build has taken so long.

I could so build that.

Actually I so couldn't. Seems you do with skill and finesse what I do with hacking and constantly covering up mistakes :-/

Nice truck dude Integrating the back bumper into the look is an especially nice piece. Apart from all the other nice touches, like the grill, the pedals, the door latches...

I sure hope we've got a slot reserved in the Top Builds section by now.
I love the color scheme, with the brown seats and all the silver details. Can't wait to see it in the wild.

Boy Richard, you sure can build a mean Gypsy. I say put a go fast motor in it and beat it!!!

Kidding. Don't run it. Ever.

Go blast a basic SCX10 or CC01 around without a single worry in the world.

Oh come on! I make tons of mistakes. I just don't share them.

Thank you, really appreciate the kind words.

I'm quite pleased with the brown on brown. I'm itching to get this out to Smiggin's Folly before the snow falls. No roof or heater on this truck.

I want it to do wheelies and make the tires grow 2 to 4 times their original height when I hit the throttle.

I've only been driving my RTR Power Wagon and Wraith Spawn lately. Not even joking.


I removed this from a tire.


And this from a wheel.


And pizza cutters were created.


No room for fatties in my Gipsy.

I finally finished gluing all of the tires back together. I took the Gipsy out to Smiggin's Folly for some outdoor pictures.

I'm toying with the idea of mounting the spare on the bonnet. It wasn't too uncommon to see it there. What do you think?






In other related news, I stuck all the electronics in the truck for a test drive. It's alive!

I think I like it better without the spare personally. It might looks better mounted on the tailgate.

Glad to see it outside! It looks amazing, it's a real winner for sure.
