This one has been delayed for a while. Have the mounts in place and the tools but didn't found anything suitable for making the straps to hold everything



When doing the strap for the goggles, remembered to do this also and the rubber strips do the job well. Tooling foil strips for the buckles(that's the word?)

thanks!


Now a small detail that it's almost invisible but wanted to do it anyway

Each road wheel arm has a piece atached to the hull where the axle pivots


So printed 8 of these:





OD paint to cover it all



These were meant to be bolted on but will try with glue only, for now

My goal of closing off the drivetrain it's closer to finish.Needed something on top to keep away dirt and sand




First idea was a standard cover but started to mess with the 3d printer and decided to do a more elaborate clear cover to see the gears working(might sound like a joke but many non-rc people who see this truck don't understand how this truck moves or why it needs 2 motors...)

That's a good looking drive train. That clear cover was a great idea.

thanks guys

small improvement :

Put some rubber over the hull sheetmetal to cover 2 previous holes from the first gearboxes and to supress some noise




And a small rubber lip on the cover to keep sand and dirt away

The M548 often came with the winch to load cargo,mainly ammo




I thought mine would look more complete with it so...3D printed the I-beam and the winch:




It's held in place with small zip-ties:







It has a chain, only needs a hook or a D-ring

I'm suprised they used the top bows for a gantry crane, but that looks pretty killer!

Thanks...now that you've mentioned, don't seem a great idea but it worked

To make it worse, it's only mounted on 2 of the bows
