Thanks Si

I will check in the odds and sodds bucket for some of those screws ... I know they are here somewhere.

I will convert one of the critters first and see how that goes.

Cheers

Mack

Sorry to say that not much is happening on this front at the moment. Much thinking is being done, but that is about it. Hopefully real life will get out of the way and the fun can begin.

Cheers

Mack

And so, we have a pile of bits, waiting to be made into an r/c vehicle.


This is a 1/43 vehicle, and I have an idea for it, but I am still looking for the same sort of thing in 1:35.

More soon.

Mack

Hi Mack :wave:



This ... MACK ! ;)  A.C. Bulldog, which Michael grabbed recently, looks pretty  C :cool: :cool: L .

It's a 1:32 scale diecast I believe & pretty cheap and available in North America.



I would probably consider one myself, if it weren't for the $$$ :shocked: shipping across the Pond. :f:

Maybe I'll see one for sale in Blighty some day ?





Another nice vehicle & an 'essential' bargain-buy for anyone looking to get poorer buy a couple o' Bucks $ ...

... is the 'Matchbox Models Of Yesteryear' diecast Ford-T in 1:35 scale. :mex:





These were made in 'tanker' ... 'van back' ... & ... 'pick-up' ... versions, in ZILLIONS of different liveries.  :)

I'm sure there are TONS of these lurking on Canadian eBay for peanuts. :P





Whilst a tad small for an R.C. Truck conversion ...

... this one has been decimated, as you can see, & is a candidate for a  C :cool: :cool: L  railtruck ...

... using one of those nice miniature gearmotors. :thumb:



The 'pick-up' version is a bit rare over here, so I've found. L:

I have a 'van-back' one as well.

I like the 'tanker' though, as you basically get a good rear for conversion ...

... & I've used the spare diecast tank, for a small 4-wheeler maintenance oil carrier car.



Break out the VISA card !! ...  &  pimp that pick-up ! :thumb:



:pimp:



Si.

This is a better pic of the winch and speed controller and motors I currently have. The winch is off of an r/c 4 wheel drive of some kind. It can pull/lift 5 lbs . I have the one complete unit as well as 3 more motor/transmission combinations as well as a couple of spare transmissions. They were originally going in an r/c tug boat with a dual winch and two tugger winches. They will now be used to r/c a yard crane and a critter or two.

The only thing missing here are the scale concrete blocks for the axle ends to rest on. Looks like your monochromatic scale SS soldier in the background stole all the wheels!

Si, because those die cast vehicles are rarer over here, they can be very expensive, and shipping is expensive as well, but, there are a few bargains.

We have our local train show here next weekend, so I will be looking for some goodies.

I actually just won a 1:35, Model T van back on ebay uk yesterday ... outrageous price ... 0.99 p ... however, I did not realize that the cdn dollar was down so far, and postage will be $14.00! Oh well, that is still way cheaper than one from here.

Cheers

Mack

Peter, I am hoping to do something similar when I get mine.
