Hi!

I'm on the final stretch of this bed.Just need to glue the planks of the seat and make the chassis mounts

Anyway, there's how it looks:



Closed latch





A printed hinge.





I'm very excited how it turned out.Anxious to get it on the trails

Because the truck has to function properly,I've improved the rear shocks to handle the extra weight.

The old ones weren't shock absorbers at all, were pretty and scale but there was no o-rings on the shaft so they couldn't hold the oil.

So , found these 60mm shocks for cheap and took the springs out and filled with 1000 oil:





They only problem is that they are made for m2.5 hardware and couldn't find 4.8mm balls for m3 so did these ones:











Don't like them upside down but unfortunately,this was the only way to mount them...



Another detail that was buggin me was mounting this tow hitch






Got the hitch from eBay, some M2 scale bolts and printed the frame around it


Don't mind the rust. It's almost ready to be painted

Well,guys,in my opinion, 3D printing is cool but when we only print scale acessories, we're just scratching the surface of it's true potential

The Moose axles being released free maybe clicked in my brain and came back from an old idea of making a full axle for the unimog. The problem is that I like this truck but the ugly axles seem out of place. Adding to that the front axle is a Frankenstein that i don't know how it never failed

So,I've started to design from scratch,heavily influenced by the now discontinued SSD D60 axle housing.

This housing will have all the features of the old one like being 20mm narrower to compensate to portal boxes,panhard mount, spring perches,spherical ends, 7 of caster and 3rd link mount. The pumpkin is small as the stock gears allow...

back:











Diff cover will be designed next....

Thanks! well, there's no way to compare both works. I don't think I'm very skilled, only tackle one problem at a time


progress on the axle:

Like the Stones said: "I see a red axle and I want it painted black"










more subtle...
