Default 1st post, new build

Hi Pete UK here, just starting out with crawlers have tried other car types up to 1/5 baja types, didnt enjoy just way too rushed about for me. I fly RC aircraft of most types so enjoy the build as much as the play.
Starting my first post with my current project, just working on chassis steel frames with CNC 3mm aluminum parts, been milling some parts today just to work out my layout. going for a scale look with leaf springs and
scx10 axles or some sort.

took some vids CNC but will upload more to UT when Ive edited them (noisy)
bear with me on this project... first timer at scratch building cars
Austin K2 ambulance (coz i liked Ice cold in alex )

Good start!

Liking the frame and leaf mounts so far, matching the axle width(in particular) and wheels/tyres accurately might be tricky though

We might move this thread into the relevant sub forum later on, i.e. scale 1.55's, 1.9s etc...
