Anyone not familiar with a chinese 6 layout? it is two steer axles and (usually) one drive axle.
So I have to make a new chassis - on it's way,and use two identical front axles - - got two kits so one can be robbed.Both kits have a choice of straight or dropped axle,the engine well I have a choice - a diesel or a 1500 ci V12...methinks it will be the 12!!!
She is having a mild roof chop.
With the fabric centre removed.
This is the transmission that will be used.
Dressed up what if style with water pump,starter etc,plus valve covers.
A comparison with the Bugatti straight 8.
The aprox position I want..
The plastruct has arrived,it is 4.5x5mm and just right for sleeving the original chassis.Also the orig floor is being cut out.
Just to give you an idea on the lengthening.
What I am aiming for.....
In place along with the grille shell.
The part ERTL part Plastruct chassis.
Thinking of the dually idea,the fronts will be ok with 500 lbs per wheel.
Opened the roof last night,got some salt on the primer today.
You can see by this how much the roof has been chopped by.
Then some flat green - US or IJN not sure now....
Followed by more salt..
Followed by another colour,will do that in a few hours.
