It has been I while since I last posted on this forum, alas life, health and work have been keeping me too busy. I am currently trying sell most of my Tamiya and RC collection and part of that process involves selling my Toyota Hilux. The only problem is it was partially built, so I had the option to sell it as it was or to finish the build. Considering I was not able to guarantee every nut and bolt was present I decided to complete the build and document it here as it may be of interest to others.
I am starting from page 8, section 30:
Gear box casing
Next was the differential which meant opening the blister pack, no going back now.
Took a bit of time but got there in the end,
Next step was to place everything in the gearbox casing
Once all together the next step was to attach the gear box to the rear sub-frame and then attach that to the chassis,
Next up was to attach the drive shafts; at this juncture I decided to deviate from the standard specification and add proper bearings, it just wouldn’t feel right otherwise.
Everything went together nicely,
Next was the suspension,
Suspension is now attached and the remainder will be tackled tomorow
Thanks for looking!
