Finally I have finished this rig. One of the best builds to date on the 1/14 rigs. The painting took a fair bit to get it all right. Lots of extra detail as well on this. Again like the rest of my rigs has under gone some custom CNC parts :) The first was the fitting of the MFU control into the box that comes with the scania. This was done by CNC'ing a hole into the box then remaking the part that holds the circuit board and fitting it into the box. Next was to make a tray to hold the main MFU in the center of the cab with the rumble motor and receiver out to the sides. This allows the full interior to be fitted! I also added cable holders which work a treat. Next was to mod the holes in the rear light cluster so as to fit in some rear aux lights, With all the leds fitted it is a very tight squeeze! the last job is to make some covers to hid the light coming from the top navi lights,

Excuse the quality of the pics as my digi cam packed up so taken on my K800 mobi.

Very sweet - time well spent on a top job. I like the body colour coded lowers too. Better than black.
