TugBoat, A 1/10th Dually Story

I have taken these 2 Radio Controlled, little Chevy trucks and I am in the process of making a 4 dr dually.








.
I soaked all the paint of in some degreaser.




This is the frame I will be using and layed out with the drivetrain. It has a 2 spd transmission








This what she looks like at the moment. Its still a work in progress.










Any thoughts ?

Re: TugBoat, A 1/10th Dually Story

This is awesome. I had a though when I saw the last picture before I saw you ask if we had any thoughts. My thought was "Camper". I started picturing it done and in motion across land and a camper on the back would make the Crew Cab look right off road.

Thank you Tim Two questions, ok, maybe 3.

1. Have you come across any dually builds on this site ? I have looked a little, but no duallies yet.

2. Any color combo's you might suggest, I've searched for images, most are one tone. I want green and white-ish or brown\tan with an off white possibly.

3. A full camper in the bed, over the roof , or a dual axled pull behind camper trailer ?

Re: TugBoat, A 1/10th Dually Story

No dual wheel builds of any scale come to mind. Maybe the 73-87 4x4 pictures sticky (in 4 Whee & Off Road) would have some real ones to look at. I'm partial to '84 Light Saddle Poly. I had an '84 someone had added creme two-tone on the sides. I pictured it with a slide-in over the cab type camper to add to the off road aspect of a crew cab 4wd. But maybe a low-profile type (pop-up) would be even better.

Re: TugBoat, A 1/10th Dually Story

All these are dope!

If I've never monkeyed with RC cars before is it pretty easy to get into something like this?
