Russian MB-LT Army Surplus Logging Machine

This section is for builds that are not strictly Tamiya or Heng Long. For instance, replacing the electronics from a WSN or Matorro, or even a scratch-build.

I've always enjoyed watching these You Tube videos of ex-army tracked vehicles ploughing through the Siberian wasteland. Nothing seems to stop them. The MB-LT and it's variants seem to be favourites for logging and supply vehicles so seeing as I can't buy one I am having a go at making one.

No armaments, and a modified rear hull should give it that Mad Max look, and if I can make it amphibious so much the better. It should be an interesting project if nothing else! :/

and this is where I am at the moment.

LOL, trust you to find something obscure. How about turning it into a mad max machine, or a moon buggy to compliment one of your past builds ;)

I will be happy if it runs reliably! lol. Hopefully it will, I will use it as a mud plugging off road machine. :wave:

I am leaning towards nylon gearboxes as they will be immune to water getting on the gears and corroding them, but I may have to go the low ratio route. I can solve that problem when I get to it... 8O

Progress so far, it will be cut in half and the front and rear printed separately, I loaded the whole thing into Cura and it would take more than 5 days to print it. 8O 8O 8O
