Hey everyone,

It's been a while since I've posted any builds on this site. I think the last was the 1/60 scale drone from Macross Plus....it'll resurface one of these days!

My current project a 1/10 scale interpretation of Jim's jeep from Mospeada. At this stage, it's simply a MDF mock-up. I'm hoping to finish it up by the end of the weekend and get started on the actual piece next week. I'll eventually offer this as a kit. I hope you enjoy.

More soon.

Thanks for the encouraging words, Guys.

I'll be beginning work on the pieces next week. I

Since the jeep measures nearly 17.5" in length, weight will be an issue. I'm entertaining casting the chassis/bottom half of the jeep in fiberglass resin. I'm working to make it as light and strong as possible while maintaining rich details. Also, I'll be designing it as R/C friendly as I can for anyone thinking of a do-it-yourself conversion.

More soon!

p.s. Lookin forward to seeing that Fuke custom!

Thanks Troyness.

Here's another small update. I know wheels are not all that exciting, but ya got to have em!

These are the basic shapes for the tires, wheels and hubcaps (before details are added). The tires/wheel halves will be molded, cast and joined to form the full{symetrical} shapes. Tread will then be applied then molded once more.

I'm stoked to see all the mospeada activity (from members) of late. So, I'm dusting this project off and getting back on the horse with Jim's Jeep. Updates coming!

Ahab-

Sorry for a necro rise post.

 

However as 1/10 & 1/12 arent that far apart. Curious did this get finished?

Or was kits offered from the wooden masters? As I think this could possibly work with the 1/12 Sentinels Riobot. 

 

Just curious as be great to add to the 1/12 figures or tackle it slightly smaller and more accurate.

 

I have some 1/10 vehicles and aircraft that work perfectly well with 1/12 scale figures. Hence why I ask.

oh wowzers! I think I had suggested this to Cap awhile ago when he was pitching and taking orders for the 1/12 bike accessories. Never knew this was a project. It looks awesome as far as it got.

I did ask Sentinels if they planned to do this "jeep with the 3 remaining characters as a set". The reply was "forwarded on your suggestion". 

Till we hear i guess scratchbuilt will be the way forward or kit is made by someone.
