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.

a new build to report....
this time it's a personal car of the Austrian manufacturer Steyr build in 18'000 pcs overall in the years 1941-1944.

Interesting obscure vehicle. Good job. Is it 3D printed? how it's so smooth :)

yes, it's 3D printed made of resin (a very durable type, because there are different resins available), therefore the surface is so smooth.

Congratulations on another remarkably interesting and excellent vehicle, Panzerjäger. I am impressed and curious. Did the Steyr 1500A have not taillight(s)? What color will you paint it? Dunkelgelb? Dunkelgrau? Tarnung?

Hello Freddy,

You have a flair for introducing unique and interesting pieces to our armor-related world. This one is a run-a-way winner...and so beautifully executed. I hope we see more of this one down the road. :thumbup:

Greetings,

Ralph

@all, Thanks for your interest about this vehicle :thumbup:

This build isn't finished yet, so a Notek taillight will be installed later. The paint job will do a friend of mine and it'll be a tri-color camouflage.

Here are some pictures of my Steyr build. It´s very easy to assemble because it consists of less parts; the body is in one piece. The biggest tasks was the gear and axles.
The axles had to be shortended.

Pretty much my experience, what are you using for motors? I tried N20's on mine, but they were "somewhat disappointing"...
