finally able to get started on this build, ive been wanting to do this for along time. I believe ive done enough research and download enough pictures to get start

like all my builds it wil be r/c with a working arm .    ive scale this out to be a 1/10 which is really big, somt times I think I take in to much fumes . lol

ive measured this out to be around 790mm, tires are 126mm using 2.2 rims

theres going to be a lot of 3 steps forward and many steps back . im going in 1/2 blind on this and don't know what walls I will be hitting. im assuming around 400 hours ,

so this will be great winter coming build .   well enjoy the movie and lets get started

ive cut the frame rail, I some what know where the axles go, I need to make the lower hull 1st.   ive started by intergrading the rails in the hull, starting from the front

so far everything is located at the right height and right place , I do have to make some new frame rails as these are alittle short . but in the mean time I will work with these to see rear everything else goes .  running from the front leaf to th axle is a stabilizer , I have to make these and the mounts
