First scratch build model - 1/12th scale Hetzer for R/C

Post by Spinnetti » 02 Jan 2022 04:32

I like building scale R/C and specialize in exact scale function landing gear in 1/6 scale. Decided I would design a line of AFVs, and my first on is a 38t Hetzer. CAD designed of course and all 3d printed, both FDM and SLA. Uses a single brushless motor and 2s lipo and steering is like the real thing with brake drums on the outboard ends of the working differential. Its running and driving, and I'm just finishing up all the little details. This is the CAD model - real thing looks a bit ugly yet as its not painted. Next up will be a variant of the Stug.

Looks good! Any further progress? Also, "specialize in exact scale function landing gear in 1/6 scale" Do you build a lot of 1/6 R/C aircraft??
