hello everyone! this build started back in December when I bought a few goodies from rc4wd, I decided to turn my old scx-10 honcho kit, which looked like this ...into a land rover, so I searched on Google images many times to try and find a nice land rover to base my build on... and, well I couldn't find any, lol so I took all the things I liked about each one I saw on the internet and started making my own, I decided the truck had to have a camouflage paint scheme, a big home made snorkel, lot's of lights, a winch, mud flaps, blackened rims, and one of those springy antenna things? lol CB radio! so this is where I’m at so far... yes, that is electrical tape holding the snorkel on... for now, the snorkel it's self was made from an axial dingo driveshaft, a traxxas rustler steering bell crank, the top square piece was from an rc snowmobile, and the lens on the top was from an axial light bucket... that’s what I call recycling! lol I made the cb radio out of a piece of lego, a spring from a clicky pen, and from part of an axial receiver box, topped off with some hockey tape! haha, oh and the fire extinguisher in the back window I made from part of a Christmas tree stand! I thought the spare tire needed something to hold it down nice and tight the painting took forever! at least 14 days, I just free handed it with some rattle cans the winch and bumper I got from RC4wd, I think it looks perfect with the land rover body I shortened the wheel base of the honcho by cutting the aluminum links and re-threading the inside holes currently this truck does not run, I am still on the fence about the electronics, I want to throw in a 35t tekin system with the fxr but I'm worried that it won't be fast enough, I'm going to use a futaba 4pl radio for the winch and lights, along with a 2075 traxxas servo, everything will be water-proofed I decided to mount the battery up front, I wanted to use li-po’s... err, I mean li-fe's, but there is a limited amount of room up front, so I am stuck with using a 6 cell nimh 4500mah battery... at least the weight distribution is scale, lol it is sooooo nose heavy! the mud flaps I made from an old belt, and that ladder was from ... um, I honestly don't know where it came from? but I thought it looked cool, and lastly the mirrors I made by cutting up a CD thanks for lookin! this build is far from done, and I can't wait to see what it looks like covered in mud!
