  1. Outstanding. There is no fat on that whatsoever, it’s the perfect small scale jeep. whats the part number for those poseable connectors? They look like a solution I could use a lot of.
  2. Cheers man, I’ve spent the past couple of evenings making the canopy opening mechanism as I wanted it to slide and lift like the real deal. It’s now working nicely. (See video) but I will have to find a new home for the buwizz. https://flic.kr/p/2pJZqpM I have the engines spinning, the pneumatic pump working and the gun but I can’t film and operate as it’s controlled by my phone so when I work this out I’ll upload some video.
  3. Just a thought but could you put the crankshaft elsewhere and run the pistons via rockers?
  4. So following a lengthy period of head scratching, house moving, and general procrastination I’ve done some more work on this. I’ve managed to lower the height of the fuselage, connect up the knobs of god with both the joystick and rudder pedals and the control surfaces. the undercarriage and flaps are now pneumatic and I’m building an ejector seat around the buwizz that powers the engines and the pump and of course, the gun. https://flic.kr/p/2pJ5b5S https://flic.kr/p/2pJ5bGi https://flic.kr/p/2pJ4zYE https://flic.kr/p/2pHXmxg thanks for looking. I’ll get on the case and finish this thing!
  5. In an increasingly Bluetooth hub and many motors world this is most refreshing and also brilliant. Followed on t’flikr.
  6. Outstanding! And a way cooler car than a Ferrari!
  7. Awesome build! Surely it should contain 1 lift arm.
  8. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashbory_bass the strings are silicone rubber and operate at a much reduced tension, all of which sounds like exactly what you need.
  9. Ashbury made a bass with rubber strings. They might suit the aesthetic and tension needed for that. Great project though!
  10. This looks a little like the tamiya sand scorcher chassis, particularly the front suspension.
  11. Great model! Instantly recognisable and impressive features at that scale.
  12. Without seeing this, could you have the differential in upside down? That would make it spin the drive shaft the opposite way and snap at a universal joint.
  13. Could you not use a pf m motor directly on each rotor? It looks deep enough.
  14. Maybe I’ll try it as simple as possible first and see if there’s a problem.
  15. Thanks folks. I think I’m going to put a clutch in front of the pump so I can disconnect it if necessary. @Johnny1360 I don’t doubt there will be another strip down before it’s done!
