So I add my another "every week" update:







Now it's really taking shape, next time when i'm building I want to finish glueing the body panels and move on to sanding process.
On Tuesday I will go to a 3 week vacation so no updates until the March

Hello my friends!

Back from my trip and this weekend I ended body building first stage - glueing pieces, now on to the second step - filling, sanding and painting. Let the pics talk:











I made a little video, of course I started filming when the battery was already dead but you can still see something. I didn't fix the body to the frame.

In two weeks I will get the plow cut out - I can't wait to see how it looks like.

Does anyone know the RAL colour code of red Pistenbully's? I have to find it fast. Google wasn't helpful this time :huh:

Thank you for looking!

Hi!

This time I don't have really nothing to show but I received my plow parts on Thursday:













Some of the parts are details for the body but you will see them in the future.
Few parts need still machining and bending so I couldn't start the assembling.

I want to get the plow parts ready in two weeks, also the body should be painted by that time.

Thanks for looking!

Update!


I painted the body, will repaint it again because I wasn't clear with the results.
Some pics to show:







I also started assembling the plow, I'm making every part manually with angle grinder and dremel so it takes a lot of time to make all these parts.





Thanks for looking!

Chris, Thanks! I will do my best

So I have 90% of the plow ready:







Repainted body, motor room will come later:







Now got to add windows and other details, then will come lights. Glue did some tricks and made white borders to some windows. Next time will use new glue.

Thanks for looking!

Hey!


So I have 90% ready of the body, some details needs to be added but main job is done. Windows and beacons are not mounted, just did a mock up.









Next time better pictures and video of all the lights working, it is very cool!

Thanks for looking!

Hi Madda, very nice model!. I had to take a look here after your question about cylinders in the G990-thread. Im very impressed by what you have achieved so far. I can understand that you are interested in hydraulics, since you need some for the plow, dont you?

Stefan

Thanks Stefan! Yeah I'm interested in hydraulics but my problem is that I don't have lathe or mill to make smt, i'm saving money for a mill though. Other concern is that it's quite hard to make cylinders on a mill :s and I don't have resources for buying both since I'm only 17.

Hiya,

I'm very impressed with your build.

Hydraulics:

You could get some custom made by Damitz modellbau. At the moment that's what I'm doing. It the cost isnt that much more than standard unless standard is suitable.

I think it would. 89 euro for the largest cylinder 320 euro for brushless motor hydraulic pump the valve I can't remember but if you check out precision model distribution (PMD) it will give you an idea.

If you want really small ones (6mm largest diameter on the cylinder) then let me know and I will get the link for you.

Again, a very brilliant build, you are deffinately. A builder to watch for.

Thanks Rebekah!


Yeah I have checked Damitz and other distributors. My idea is to build everything possible myself, then I can say that it is scratch built! I'm thinking of ordering pump from jung-fluid and then make other parts with mill. Probably they won't be the best at first try but I want to try it!

I will continue with the build in the winter because it's winter machine and I have more time then. Meanwhile I will to some warm-up runs so that the things don't get rusty

I hope you understand my point
