Nice work-Pure talent. I'm into the whole R/C thing except I build large scale aircraft. Just finishing a p47 with a 9ft. wingspan I've been building for 5 years. Can't wait to get it in the air! It's something to do when I'm not working on my mv's.

Wow, You are pouring alot of love and labor in to it,,, I'll Give Ya $40 dollars for it..............Thats just a bad joke, I wouldnt ever give it up unless some major money or opportunity / offer to build more came along. Keep up the Good work,,,,,,,,,,,If I had $500 for a cool mini deuce hood ornament to put on my deuce, I would, maybe even a $1000.... But I can understand the model thing too, I love the RC Hemtt I have seen on youtube.

Looks Good, and like everyone else says:ditto:,,, cant wait to see the final work of art!

You have WAY more patience than I do. I would've smashed it into scrap by now if something didn't come out the way I planned.

Everything I made in shop class always turned out to be an ashtray.

Great work! I have looked through books and magazines at book stores that show projects like this and it has always amazed me that modelers can take drawings of mechanical machines and vehicles and build working replicas.
What type of drive train will you use/build?

Thanks fellas! I have been very lucky in that I have used a number of new building methods and they have all turned out good the first time on this build...Now in saying that Im sure the next build segment will go to sh1t.lol...As for drive train I will be using a tamiya 3 speed trans from a semi truck rc. the axles are RC4WD rockwell scalers or blackwells as they call them. The drive shafts are also from the tamiya kit. I will be making my own leaf springs from some scrap pieces of spring steel I found at work today!
