6x6 Family Photo

Talk about your custom made one-of-a-kind builds, and also off-beat R/C stuff that you just don't see everyday.

6x6 Family Photo

Post by weeb_beano »

Hi all! I temporarily don't have a workshop as some family members are living with us, so we had to make room for them.

I'm still alive and trying to make some time for the hobby but other things are taking up the main stage. I am however writing a book about radio controlled stuff in the time being since I can't use any tooling.

This was a picture taken a few months ago, but it's a family portrait of my completed six wheel drive project.

From left to right - Tiamat, Mammoet, Power Pig, and Pickle Time.

Very cool, especially the first two yellow & red rigs. I really like the looks of those.
I hear the train a comin'; it's rollin' 'round the bend, And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when.

What are you using for bodies on the big ones?

Hi there, the bodies are from the Ford Aeromax 1/14 big rigs that Tamiya also makes.
Despite being 1/14 they are deceptively large....
I ended up getting the whole kit and parting them down for projects.

On your truck using the Bullhead body... what are you using for body mount posts? I'm building a 6x6 and went with the Bullhead body.

Hi there,
I ended up just using random scrap and bits to make some mounts for the body, largely retaining the original body mount posts.
I don't have a whole lot of pictures of it close up, but these might help:

This truck is sort of my technology demonstrator and guinea pig, so it's usually in a state of being tweaked around with. Hope this helps!
