Nice pictures Charles, starting to take shape, Doesn't look like a lot of leg room. Like the quad, looks like Eddies going to be a contortionist to get his feet on the pedals, are there pedals? :lol:
Looking forward to seeing an Eddie or a Dave in the driving seat. 8)

Thank you john.

Your comments are much appreciated.

Today. We were mainly milling the tailgate frame, which was nice.
In't milling great

Having said that it would/could be reasonable to file the frame down too.

I am going to to take off just a gnats whatsit tomorrow as I want 2mm thickness on the milled area.

Confused: Follow up photos, to follow, if you follow.

good night all

You've blown the cover of No 27.

I was hoping to keep:- Huge, Puge, Barely, Magrew, Cutherbert, Dibble & Grubb, under cover for now! :shock: πŸš’

Oh no I said too much, I thought I heard you laughing.

Well, the planned build could be a good laugh .

Cheers all

Hi Folks.

Hope you are all having a good weekend.

Due to the heavy dose of wet stuff this week I had a tidy up of tools and things in't garage. With me, that means I find something, then go off in a different direction, well this happened. I found some EKP slotless screws.

I wonder, what to do?

Old L********* S1's have a smooth tailgate:-
Slot less screws, filed down, edging will be added later after some filler.

As you know one thing leads to another.

So we went soldering, great fun. I know the hinges are the wrong way round but I wasn't prepared to rebuild the whole thing, so tough, it stays :twisted:

The yellow marker is to highlight that these are welded on to the chassis (use more slotless screws/filler, you can see how distracted I can become) but bolted to the upper bodywork.
A view from the other side.

Take care.

Evening all.

Just a small update on no.28.

Found some faux webbing on *bay. I tried leather, however I think the webbing more correct. It could be slacker, but I am sure it will stretch with use.
Dry fit with plates

Might just leave the button screws as they are behind the wheels: Unless there are objections from the S1 fan club :lol:

Take care

I think it looks great, though it's the first time I've seen this type axle tethering other than on something on "Customer states" or "just rolled in" on Youtube :D
I mean, I know "keep it simple", but WT....thank goodness technology has moved on. :lol: (Your No1 fan)

Good evening Fan.

Fun day today, S1. No.28 has been out for a run around the tank track :-D :-D

We did test the lecky bits this morning, some issues occurred, which I have passed onto management (AT), so will not go into details.

The end of day results are;-
1/
Its gonna have to fit somewhere, somehow.

Good evening folks.

Just a quick entry to say the electrical issues are sorted and we have fully functioning sound system.

Something that did occur was the steering was the wrong way round,(go left is turn right & go right is turn left). Did it on both "rudder" & "aileron", so simply reversed the servo.

If the weather is with us tomorrow, we will have a run out.

Cheers

Found somewhere for the electrics to go:-
Well, I did say it had to go somewhere!

I wonder if the huge on/off switch could be changed, push button perhaps?
The lights work too.

I will make a lead up to link the battery compartment to the engine bay and hopefully everything will be out of sight.

Take care.

No wonder the dummy engine and rad post went quiet if there's no bonnet space, what you need is a frunk, like an EV.
Hold on...... :lol:
Or it's like a cheap tin of fungi soup, not mushroom inside :twisted:

Joking a side, access to the battery should be good and easy to remove if using a lipo, I always charge my batteries outside the model for safety reasons

I'm liking the position of the side lights, very early S1 positioning.
Nice 8)
