HL Truck Mods

Heng Long/WPL are now manufacturing 1/16 scale RC trucks, so it seemed sensible to create a forum area dedicated to the amazing things that members are doing with them. Post your builds, mods, and tips here.

it is the only way to print TPU :haha:

Getting an Ender 3 tomorrow (or maybe a knock off - hard to tell?) going to experiment with leaf springs from flexible PLA... All being well I'll be able to set the bigger trucks up with the proper beam suspension rather than the individual leaf systems that Helifar and JJRC opted for :|

Phew, thought I’d cocked up there..
With the 1/6 Deuce I’m printing a bastardised version of Will’s rad rod rear suspension to locate the axles, once it in place tomorrow I’ll see if I can use leaf springs instead of coil overs, either way there’ll be loads of suspension travel

So been busy all day designing and printing and fitting my new range pf parts for the JJRC Q65 Willys Jeeps.
Trying my hardest to tart them up a little and make them more of the part.

We have a long list of parts to design still, but hopefully the next range of parts will help for those making an SAS version.
Just left my wife to start the painting and detailing on these :)
30 cal for protection with fender mounted MG

Barbed wire cutter and also a real folding tow bar, not to mentino a 50cal mount and MG on the back
Image

Wire reel for communication Jeeps
Image

I also designed myself a new set of door cards for our Ford V3000 truck. Artistic license used heavily haha

Also got our new Dual 370 motor mount printed for use on Alu extrusion U channel chassis
Image
Image

My Radio Communication Jeep also has one of our dual 180 motor setups installed with servo. I am looking to add sound eventually aswell, but it really does work well

Alot more to come, hope you like

I done some more parts for my Willys Jeep JJRC 1/11.5ish scale thingy
Image

My 2nd one i have started fitting out with 50cal & 30cal with a fold down tow bracket :)
Image

I also had a shot and tarting up the interior of our Ford V3000 replica truck. I wanted the interior to look a little better. Unfortunately no pictures existed that i could find of the real interior. I stupidly forgot to get some when i saw a real one at Omaha beach. Doh!
So i used artistic license to make it look a bit more different
Image

Next jobs on the list that are printing as we speak are some special new parts for our MAN Kat1 8x8 go anywhere truck
