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
