Re: RC Benchy

Re: Fully 3D printed John Deere 1/10 scratch build

Re: RC Benchy

My back yard is a park. That park is next to what I think used to be a mill pond of some sort on the river. So yeah - I got a place to try it out. I used to run my Seaport/Harbor tug conversion...

Re: RC Benchy

Faster than a slow boat from China?

Don't know yet, I don't want too much speed, he is a heavily armed TUGBOAT after all. He's got more of a high speed prop now. I'm pretty sure it's not what...

Re: Cockshutt 70 tractor (1935-48)

That Cockshutt must have one HELLUVA exhaust leak. Every time I forgot to take the can off the muffler of a tractor, it got blown off when the engine fired up.

Are we being spammed by this guy, or is there something else going on here?

It doesn't seem like the postings have anything to do with this forum.

Re: 3D Printer files for Bodies

I don't know if this counts, but I'm currently working on the 3D model for "Big Red". This was Ford's gas turbine concept truck built for the 1964 World's Fair. Big Red was given coast to coast...

Re: Build an Excavator from Scratch

I was going to ask how you were cutting your parts, then I saw your saw. You've got some fairly tight curves that you appear to be cutting. What are you using for a blade on that saw?
