Tamiya Scania R620 and Tanker Trailer rebuild

Recommended Posts

Picked up a Tamiya Scania in need of a repaint with mint tanker trailer.

Full sounds and lights with the Tamiya MFC-03.

Trailer has rear lights and coupler sounds etc.

Had one of these years ago which I converted into a Dragon Wagon. Not doing that again :)

Simple strip, rebuild and repaint on this with a new Carson Posion motor and steering upgrade.

Colour has changed from red to grey. Metallic grey from Halfords and clear coated.

Going to do a false wall to hide the electrics and for the interior next.

Carson Posion truck motor arrived yesterday along with the cranked steering arm.

Both fitted and make a huge difference. Turning circle much improved and the scale speed is much better. More torque, less rpm.

Been playing around with a false wall for the MFC-03 to fit on the back, enabling the cab interior to be fitted.

Looking good there mate. Nice work.

Different motor makes all the difference for sure.

Cheers

Thank you for checking in :)

Massive difference - no longer driving at warp speed!

Made some progress, false wall hinged and electrics fitted.

Wiring just needs tidying and it’s done.

Griffin stickers arrived for the cab sides :)
