1985 3+3, 4x4 Scratchbuilt
 
Hello. I'm still alive, had open heart surgery last May,and installed some cleaner lines to my heart, 3 to be exact. :)

Anyway, I'm still building little RC trucks. My latest. A company out of California, called RC4WD makes a 70"s Blazer that makes a great platform to cut up.. I used 2 on this build. Its bigger then my other bodies, as you can see in the 1st picture. I also wanted an 80"s square, so I had to redo the whole front clip

hey Jeffro, long time no hear!
OHS? wow, that's a big one. good to hear your doin' alright though

as usual, another stellar job! how about a mud test run?...lol. love the sound of that big block, cool vid.

Thank you KShortell :)


Hi dieseldawg, its been awhile, and its great to hear from you again. I was hoping I might see you on here. Tell you what, I have more energy and stamina now than I did a year ago.( I'll be 61 in June) Im livin on Bonus time LOL ( I lost my dad when he was 59, so, I made it a little further, so far.

( Would you have any use for some 1/25th models ?)

Anyawy: :)

I actually want to do a mud run, just not sure it can pull its fat butt threw it,. lol
It weighs 15 pounds which is a lot for an RC truck. I may just give it green, just for you. It will be awhile though, I've got several builds going, actually for someone else, which is unusual for me.

I did one for a guy in Michigan last year to match his real mud truck

Thank you Ol Blue, great to hear from you ! Had to repair it, and took it for a test drive.

Jeffro2,

Sweet 6 pack crew cab truck!!!

I want to know where you got your body and parts to build that sweet 72 Chevy 4x4 that you built.

Did you use a regular 1/24 72 Chevy 4x4 body and adapt it to a RC chassis?

Thanks,

Doug
