I've finished this little Clod, the details on the grill and taillights for the Jconcepts 88 Silverado shell are forthcoming in a full video with purchase links.

Not trying to sell so much as to share my work

Finished assembly of my Superduper Blackfoot from new old stock parts. Gotta get a driver fitted & stealth body mounts & other minor details to sort out but really pleased with it, about as good a Blackfoot as I could come up with, looking forward to a test run.

That’s a great colour choice, the Labradors fur won’t show on that 👍🏻

Is that a King Blackfoot rear end on that chassis @J@mes
I do hope they get re-re’d sometime.

It’s a super Blackfoot with a Bush Devil body or you could say it’s a bush devil done in mk1 Blackfoot colours. :D But yes you’re right, Same rear as KB

I did briefly consider doing a Super Monster Beetle but I seem to have more of an obsession with the pick ups :)

 

Hows your MB coming along @Re-Bugged

Terrible obsession you have to live with, glad to see you thriving on it though.

MB is coming on slowly, I was hoping to get some primer on the body but looks like we have a week of storms brewing as I type so that might not happen?

Installed the shocks on the CR-01 and had to do the old can articulation test :lol::lol:

Had to adjust the rear top shock point due to the shortening of the wheelbase but i now get the same travel at each end after a few hours messing around in the garage

Looks great mate. Grats. B)

Couldn't help but notice the gearbox on the left.

Do you have an ORV project on the go too?

After running my CC-01 for several years on a TEU-101BK zip tied into a balloon for waterproofing, I have brought it up to date at last by replacing this with a waterproof 1060. Along with the existing SR300WP RX and S3014 servos, my electronics are now all puddle-worthy.

In addition to achieving a neater installation with no need for a balloon, I can now run LiPo without having to find somewhere to put the alarm.

Nice touch with the clod roll bars

 

Thanks, they’re really from a Landfreeder- on the same sprue as the bull bar & spotlights

Bought an A4 sheet of foam from hobby craft and made a dust cover for my DT02 (after seeing the pics of the one that had been run on the beach and the chassis was full to the top with sand) its cut to shape and held on with velcro.

I think that was me? It's all good - let it dry and blow it out with a compressor!

No that’s the motor and tranny for CR-01 it was easier to have it out to do the shocks

I went for the Carisma Coyote

I like it, not that I know the the car though 😂

i did see somewhere a long time ago someone put a king cab body on one but I think it required some mods

Its cool I like the style, I am rubbish at cutting bodies though. See the Jagged edge :( hoping I can smooth it out

You keep looking for excuses to post pics of your Dragon. It’s as transparent as lexan.

But I wanted you to know that I never get tired of seeing it, so do keep it up! Such a cool riff on the look of the original.

brrrrrrmmmmm!
