[MOC] [WIP] Unimog U500 Doublecab

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

and yes, I did it again... The next Unimog for my collection...

It's a U500 doublecab. I used the standard chassis of 8110 and added 6 studs in the wheelbase.

There are three M-motors, one XL and one servo used. The M's are used for the front an rear pto and one for the two pumps. The XL is for driving and the servo for steering...

The front of the cab was inspired bei stefan_betula_pendula and his extrem nice U400 - thanks to Stefan for his help.

And since I'm running out of required parts I have to wait until the next Bricklink deliveries...

Have fun watching the first pictures and stay tuned...

Hi folks,

a little update while waiting for parts...

I streched the chassis some more studs. The bed was too tiny...

Have fun watching the pictures:

Those axles are bothering the engineering side of me (I'm sure Alex from LPEPower will understand :wink:), but overall this is a good-looking model so far. Really like the way you used the wing pieces on the back :classic:

I think thats what the 8110 should have been. It looks way better!

Thanks again...

Since there's no scale in the house... I can't tell the weight...

I think a little more than the U400 :)

And here are some moving pictures:

So far
