Default DEFENDIO...Defender of Mandio

Hello beautiful people! : wave:

Defendio is the name that I gave to my Land Rover Defender.

It is not my first Scaler, but I want to share this with you to know what you think ... if you like!

It is not yet finished but is well underway. : p

Begin!

I started on 23 November 2008 and the material was to start this project:

Body hwpeterl
Chassis TCS X-Trail
Trasmissimon RC4WD R2 2speed
axle TLT
Motor Integy 55T
Servo TowerPro MG995
Rims RC4WD Land
Tires RC4WD Rock Creepers
most other accessories Aesthetic


colors


I removed the original paint metallic body with a cloth and alcohol



I had initially put a reducer 3:1, but I had to delete it because I had some serious problems to establish the link above


Wishing to reproduce the "off spring" of the true defender, I set the rear springs in this way





I know ... the servant on the front is not good, but it's very funzinale is more convenient to handle


first tests




... work in progress ...




I had to cut a little cabin



Then I went outside to Roll Bar





With some damage, but nothing serious













Video



Bumper port winch







The temperature was not ideal for the body paint


so I invented a furnace, with a box and a hair dryer Travel





the temperature was better






Accessories







Cockpit





Now I'm working on your lights ... and soon will update with new photos







Clarification:
To speak with you use Google Translate on, so sorry if I commit errors / horrors, but I apassione is great, you always keep silent, but I wanted to Defend present it.

Thank you!

Ouch on the burn; you can bend brass turing pretty easily with a spring bender, like the one from K&S. Or look on Micromark.com for a couple different types of tubing benders.

Love the paint

Edit; I just looked and K&S makes a tubing bender for larger diamete wire and tubing. You should be able to mark the jig for repeatable bends too. And no more burns.

It seems pink ... the camera is not the best when you use the macro ... the color is actually a type brown root

Hello and so happy!: Nice:

my id Ebay is blocknotes, but your body I bought from www.thescalerstore.com

The steering wheel, is provisionally as originally soon ... (if I find the space) I want to apply a servant in addition to steering, so turn left and right along with the front wheels
