Default starting mock up

Pretty soon i'm going to start making the models for the tanks, so i had to have a complete mock-up. The engine is empty/finger tightened. I couldn't finish the whole mock-up, but it is energizing to have the gearbox/motor on the frame..

Dig the fender. Keeping it long looks great. Dig the lip you added. Nice job.

Thank you guys, was busy with other projects, but i have some updates for the tank design.

It is always difficult to figure out the final 3d form from 2d, but after some r/d and several tank mockups, i got very close to what i wanted.





still need to work on it but you can get an idea.

Hi Loffer, I used to build planes too but with balsa wood, mine were smaller than 1/10 tough

Some new stuff arrived, all genuine triumph spare parts, including the beautiful NOS cylinders.

I'm going with the original triumph 3134 high performance cams, 9:1 compression pistons.

btw.. i made this today and I liked the form, you probably figured it out what it is... something that has to be very acurate in size.

I don't know how I missed this one over the last couple months.

Best thread on here in ages.

Nice work!
