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


























A video with the sound of power LOL

Working on a Burb also... and a smaller 3+3 for someone else.

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








These are on the bench at the moment. So I keep busy at least

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
