Spid's SCX10 6x6

Post by Spidubic » Tue Sep 01, 2015 1:12 pm

Figured I should put up a build thread.

What the truck started life as.

Image

Parts delivery!

Image

Got a lot of work done. Quite happy with the progress. Chassis extended, middle axle created, rear axles 90% installed.

Kaboom! Explosion of parts.
Image

All back together.
Image

Frame rails extended.
Image

Temporarily testing axle layout.
Image

Sitting on its wheels.
Image

Top down.
Image

Test mount Bullhead body.
Image

Image

Was going to use an aftermarket bumper but decided to try my hand at making one. Not as fancy but one of a kind.

Image

Image

Seems to have pretty decent articulation.

Image

Image

Partly to be different and partly because they looked too modern I filled in the rectangular headlight holes and drilled new round holes. Think they look pretty cool. Also working on modifying the grill. One side removed, one to go.

Been working on and off on the bed. Still have a lot of finish work to do.

Winch mounts.
Image

Tailgate down.
Image

Image

Side.
Image

Image

Close up of the end of the boom.

Image

Finally found a file holder that had the mesh I needed for the grill. Loving the look. Still need to remove the chrome.

Image

Image

I love me some lights! Full 360 illumination. Downside is a lot of wiring to hide. And not exactly waterproof.

Finally got to the point I could get some paint on the body. Camera makes the colour more brown when it is really full green.

Image

Image

Interior in. Still a few details to finish.

Looks great, one question though, is this how Han Solo saved up to get his star cruiser?
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Thanks for adding the build thread here! You really did an exceptional job on this with all the little details you added to it. 8)

One thing I was wondering about was the glass for the cab, Is it still in the works?

I have some clear styrene that will be used for glass. Still needs to be installed as well as some other details. I got the truck to this point and drove it a few times then ended up starting another project. Hoping to get back to this one at some point. Also so want to try weathering the body as well.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming to the Lord,
"Wow, What a ride!"

Excellent work.
I like pretty much everything about this rig. I like what you did with the front grill and headlights as it makes the bullhead body look even better and more original.
Have you though about adding a diesel sound unit? How cool would that be... 8) :)

This build is pretty crazy impressive.... I like the general purpose anti-zombie, anti-Imperial Stormtrooper, 'Get out of my way damnit' theme of the project. I have a bullhead cab project currently going on and was originally intending on leaving the cab pretty boring- just capping it off with the dark tinted window assembly and letting it be.

You have inspired me to at least take a step back and think about some detailing possibilities and not let that space get wasted for no good reason!
