Look what the mailman brought today ! 1 week 5 days ago #66208

Hi!

Just received this. A totally unexpected find...


A full Nylon reinforced cluster for the Marui Hunter. That is the only place where you can find the under gearbox cover which was not detailed by Marui. I was surprised to see this available on a website, and ordered it, as it was including the part that could have saved my original Hunter: the oilless bearing ate this part, and next it was differential, idle gear and the chassis...

In any case, I have now a servo mount, a servo saver, and some additional new parts for the restoration.... And this cluster costed me less than just a single servo saver NIP on ebay :-)

More parts for this project expected to show up in the next days/weeks. I may have what is needed to build one nice Hunter, and one with a broken chassis. And as for the broken chassis, I believe I have some ideas on how to repair it. My project just transformed itself in a double project :-D (shelf + runner HunterS)!

The Marui cluster got me thinking. There is parts I never used. on this cluster while building my original Hunter I checked the manual and their is actually parts remaining unused. I'm not sure if they were planned for usage on the Galaxy, but it may not be the case. I don't even think it is the case, as the Galaxy did have a different Bumper... Maybe there was initially a plan for a lower range model or something different based on the same chassis...

I thought it was to be shared in this topic as it got me thinking about this for the last 2 hours :-D

Few other parts arrived today, still for the Hunter project...

Fog Lights, servo mount and servo saver (did not know before I would find a full cluster), and a broken and unbuilt MSC

Will need to understand how to make it look like a functional ESC again, but at least I have a good basis for working my "wireless" MSC to hide an ESC :-D

That being said, two servo saver is what I needed anyway to build two Hunters.

On a side note, I just ordered a Creality Ender 5 plus. I'm looking at 3D printers since quite a long time, but wanted one which would be able to Print large projects, being quite polyvalent in terms of filament (thinking about TPU and tires), and that I can enclose easily, as some of the projects I have in mind may require it... Maybe overkill for Hunter shock towers, but not necessarily for a full Hunter chassis...

Today, I received a non functional servo from a friend...


My intention for this one is to remove the mecanism, hide a ESC inside, and put it under the MSC I received earlier this week... This will be perfect to fit a Marui Hunter and to fake it is running old fashioned way :)

I had unexpected work yesterday and today so haven't got to do anything. However the postie delivered a box. Not very heavy, so I guessed its my Falcon shell along with the mini. 

Here they are, along with a bag of sweets as a gift. They are nice. And the shells look good too..

 


Falcon shell is nice and seems a lot thicker than the original.

 


 The Mini shell is a bit smaller but I have plans to build a chassis to fit but with more ground clearance than the Mardave models. 






I got them from Kamtec in the UK  I will definitely use them again plus they have some unusual body shells that you wouldn't normally see. Once the mini is done I plan on a Hillman Imp, my dad had both cars so he would like to see them too. Plus they are inexpensive.

In the post today I got a nice bumper for my Porsche 936, I think that’s everything I need for the build. Pretty much everything for this is NOS so no restoration work. Which will make a nice change.
 

I’m even thinking of starting with the body work because the chassis won’t take long.
And I’m really bad at getting any body work done !!!

Talking of body work.
I also picked up a nice rear bumper for one of my many Cheetah builds.

Now you just have to build it. Looking forward to seeing it done.

Got these bushing along with some plastic ones from Al yesterday.
Thanks very much sir!
So I have enough for mocking up projects I hope 
Gave them a overnight bath in WD40 to clean them up a little

My pleasure Richard.
They are definitely looking a lot better compared to when I packed them up.

If you collect those shitty oilless bearings, I may propose to send you some :-). I also have white nylon ones directly coming from Tamiya kits. Although for those, they can be useful when painting wheels, while the oilless bearings are not usable for this...
