Thanky you very much chaps!

Yesterday was a day of failures.
Micro on/off switch was either melted due the solder heat or it got super glued together.
Only thing I got done was planning the negative power wire.


And the positive power wire which will run on the underside..


Then it occurred to me I can make a maintaince free on off switch by using a standard male servo plug and make a jumper for the end 




Todays progress was awesome if I may say so myself!
I completed all the power system for the lights.
System is 3v and each 1.8mm led is running of one 47ohm resistor.


Like so 


Underside


My on/off switch aka servo plug was hidden here


And first test. Exactly how I wanted the lights to be!




Wires painted. Makes them look less messy. I ledt the rear section bare as I still have taillights to install when the sides are mounted


Power off


Power on


And then into my scale garage, while other bits is getting made / painted.

Today I made the other side panel for the trailer.


A bit testing



To make it finish I need:
#Make holes for the upper front ramp rams.
#Make the front upper ramps.
#Make the track and "bucket" for the rear part of the front upper ramps.
#Paint the inside of side panels black.
#Paint the outside of side panels blue.
#Paint the tracks.
#Assembly of trailer.
#Make the rear lights.

Still a bit to go, but getting there

Time to plan the scale remotes.
My transmitter of choice is the Attack R.

I just love all the angles. It's not as flat as you might think


Got most of the needed measurements down



All I had energy for today was to draw this.

Well... Seems nobody did put two and two together.
But this was the plan..
Swap over the Fuchs wheels and some lowering..


Poor Porsche..


I did try with the bus wheels, like the 912... But not totally convinced..
Might have another plan..
