The past months I have been working on the RC controls and the cab. Initially I had a lot of stuff in the cab.



But I changed my mind and opted to create more space for the interior, like chairs, etc. that meant that I had to rearrange things a bit. I also fitted the light, which are usually an afterthought, but actually take quite a bit of space. Luckily there is some space behind the cab and there I fitted one servo (gearbox), the receiver and the speed control. There are two servos between the front axles and the rear axles on either side (one for the rear steering, the other to engage front wheel drive). The other two servos (5 in total) are under the floor of the cab, one for the high-low gearbox and the other for the front steering. All the servos are micro servos. Unfortunately there is not space (yet) for the battery. I will figure something out.



Then finally I could do a proper test run:

I'm a kid at heart, so I will play with any model construction vehicle from 1:87 scale to 1:1 scale!!!!

Age is a state of time NOT a state of mind!!

I did a little photo shoot today.











The carrier is getting there. It looks a bit lopsided (leaning forward) , but that is because the suspension is sprung and there is less weight in the back, but that will change.
The outriggers are still missing and quite a few details.
