    RC Trucks



    I built a couple of RC trucks. They have electric motors and multi speed gearboxes that you can change gear while driving.

    Re: RC Trucks

    Wow! looks like a lot of work has gone into those!

    I used to have a couple of rc cars, just basic kyosho/tamiya stuff. Still got one stored in the garage, might have to get some fresh fuel and see if it still runs...
    Mostly found in Oxfordshire, UK :)

    Great photos, clever scenery to scale.

    It was only the cross head screws that brought me back to scale.

    A bit of both. It started as a Tamiya kit, but i modified it so much it bears no resemblance to what i started with. I made many parts myself such as the front bumpers and the tank and lots of bits inside you can't see. It as working brake lights / reversing lights / blinkers ect and a sound system that mimics a diesel sound.truck4 009s.jpgtruck 3 011s.jpg

    RC Trucks

    Hey R717......I don't know who are you but I really appreciate to see those pics. It is just amazing. You don't know that what did you make??? You makes incredible. Specially, I like that words which are printed on the tank like "04 EXPLOSIVES". The truck is look like "Best from Waste". Good job & keep it up.
