You do nice work sir.
Here are cardan shaft, break chambers and I guess I can call it reactive bar:
All, except front springs, glued with Craft bond
Radiator of the real thing
And my version
About rear whells spacers: they were made and instaled
I've took some time to make sun visors and wind shild holders (marked with arrows)
Some pattern parts to make power steering
Wow!! Some incredible scratch building going on here!!
Absolutely great scratch work what you showing here.
The cardan shaft looks awesome, i also make them workable so that the cardan looks more natural instead of a lump of plastic.
Can't really see every thing on the right side. I guess it is to cut the torque of the steering in half,so the driver won't have to work so hard Like a helping hand. Or like a damper to absorbed the bumps.
There is a word I'm looking for can't find it and can't spell it.
Would like to know too.
Late models of TopKicks has front mudgards:
I desided to create one, but before - some origamy
Then mudgards were solfered from sheet cooper
Delited some excess resin from bumper brackets side
Rear cab bracket parts
Soldered rear bracket plus bended plastic rod for front cab bracket
I satisfied now with cab position
Time to make damp bed
Beautiful build. Excellent scratch building.
Thank you Jacob!
Very impressive work Sergey.
Thank you, JC!
great update impressive work
Thank you, Henry!
can not wait to see more of your very impressive craftsman ship
Some dump bed work
But first - paper mockup:
sloping end I liked more
By the way, I note - hydraulic ram house on paper mockup turn out too small
great update love how the dump bed is looking
Wow! Looks great!! This is one of my favorite builds right now!!
Coming along very nicely Sergey. Very nice work.
I am enjoying watching your excellent scratch building skills and the work you are doing!
Thank you, Friends!
Kind a little "How To":
Little triangles to connect crosmembers and subframe
By the way, I often used right angles. For example red marked one to cover crossmembers, and green one acts as a guide for side walls
When I assembled the frame, I've forgot that dumpers don't have tail crossmember. Insted it has right angle. So I was have to tear off crossmember and cut out a piece of frame.
Here are profiles I used for dump hinge
And here what it turned out
And finally: hydro reservoir and hinge set up for hydraulic ram
All I needed: right angle and sheet styrene
You do very nice work! Impressive to say the least! You show that a lot can be done with very simple materials and by applying simple techniques. Great job!
Thank you Harry!
Thank you Charles for kind words! I always want to declare, that EVERYONE can make EVERYTHING. All you need is STRONGLY WANT it!
That’s really looking great! Nice work!
Thaknk you, Ben!
Side walls temporary glued
I had two attempts to make tail gate ribs. First one turn out too narrow.
Tail gate hinge and lockers
Starts to look right.
