Default cooper's Unimog 6x6 . scratchbuilt, portals...

Hi

This it's my project for Unimog 6x6. real 1/10 except the wheelbase. I don't want it to be too big. I want it be detailed but there's no "WOW" specs. SCX10 axles, ebay tires, Junfac beadlocks. 45t motor...


To start: steel frame rails



First parts to arrive





Don't mind the wheels



The body, build from styrene. It's my first scratchbuilt body so it's not perfect


















That's all for now

Still waiting for the gearbox to see if this layout works

Well...an update is well deserved...

Worked on the rear section:











After 2 coats of mate clear mate, it does not shine



Now it's time for the steering. It was my first try with a "servo on chassis" setup. Thankfully, The-Gamer beared with me all the way and gave the tips to make this work. It's all temporary for now. I'll make a proper axle mount for the new axle and the panhard will be more scale. The rod was only to define lenght

One of the things I've been anxious to do were the side mirrors. The cab seems "naked" without them.


Here's the first finished one:







Only needs some paint

Well, this is the 2th mirror in place



Another thing I've finish was the functional hatch. The hatch was there from the start but I had trouble figuring out out to make the mecanism to open. Nothing fancy but it works









Finally I can paint in the final color
