My Gaz 66

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.

Well, Gossard had an underwear set that colour a few valentines ago, they called it red. . . .


It is on my monitor, close to a mandarin orange.........or, a Valencia Orange if I change settings.
Either way its a great base and would look even better with a flame job on it :haha:

It's a shame they never ran a Gaz 66 (suitably modified) in the Paris Dakar race. Those trucks look epic.....

Chassis and cab done. MR Color Acrylic over tamiya primer with a top coat of PCB lacquer which dries rock hard with nice gloss finish.

Used packaging from a kids toy to make the windows secured with future floor wax

Also covered the seats in foam not that you can see it !

Just need to repair the missing mirror.

Work on the box will commence when I have the 3d printed frames.Image
