Not where I should be

Well thank you guys, I feel I have finally made it, well sort of.

Been working (RL) like an idiot struggling to have any thing like my usual mojo for this, but want to see where this goes.

Points I have taken are drivers view, and get rid of the smiley, so here we go .....

First alter interior......The guy is from the sentinal box. Did an enclosed sentinal so body is spare. Will have to do some conversions for the co-driver etc, but this will do for the driver. Raised the seats.



Lowered the front, stowage rack, (actually lowering this furrther as we speak) Needs lowered a bit further. Now sanding it down and shaping it a bit.





Hope the bar on the front is a start at loosing the smiley.

Question for you......exhaust, horizontal or vertical. (its a bit big at mo but you get the idea.



Thank you guys. Welcome to the new guys and please all keep it coming.

Good progress. Hope you have something planned for those wheels.

hmmm... for the exhaust I think the horizontal version is the one you should go for...after all these are desert rats... on any other setting I would go for the vertical one as it would allow small drives through shallow water...

also... do you need a further sentinel pilot? I could send you one... I still have a spare one...
also... if you are for bitz hunting I would suggest looking at the legs of taurox drivers...

as for your work issue... I really hope you soon get rid of these long working hours... you may be sure I am crossing my fingers for you here...

I like the idea of twin vertical exhausts, or possibly angled back slightly...but if I'm being totally honest I have to admit that's just the mek in me speaking...I think the horizontal look is the one to go for here.

Nice work so far.

Knowing little about the mechanics of vehicles, I would say the horizontal is more aesthetically appealing to me. This is shaping up nicely.

Normally I would say vertical, but with speed I think good all around view is needed so I vote horizontal.

Good work Cam.

If that's the exhaust you plan to use, I say horizontal. It looks a bit too tall for vertical.
If you're open to other ideas, try plugging in "bug exhaust" into google (or your favourite internet search engine), there's plenty of possibilities...

I woul have said vertical, purely for the practicality of taking it off road, if the exhaust got coverd by water/swamp/ sand, then the engine would stall out.

But rule of cool trumps everything, so go with what you like most

Neat. Just curious about any research though. Have you done a check for images for Special Forces Buggies? There are some cool things goiing on there. Possible source for inspiration.

Thanks guys,

@ Vik more parts from that 1:48 scale Supacat Coyote. They just seem perfect.

@ Red Not done any yet, got to do some at some point but my time is sparce at the moment.

So Update, just a little.....Theo it's your fault, (anyone notice that happens alot.)

Winch for front end.....



Rough positioning..


And she's on....


Also getting a million different washes to look dirty and dusty and generally lived in.

Question, wheels? Go with the one of the different sets I have tried so far, or order up some zinge wheels that would probably better fit size wise.

Next I think I need to work on the crew. That will be much later probably, thanks for looking in.

I like that winch and cable and the hook detail... but how long will the cable stay?

and thanks for the explanation of the bit for the bumper!

as for the wheel issue.... well my OCD would say that both wheels would need the same profil... mixed ones just make me feel weird^^...

I think the protuding cable on the winch needs to be a tad shorter...other than that it's looking great!

Hmmm....think some zinge wheels would look ace on there....and you know you want a few other little things from their catalogue whilst you're there

I'm tempted to agree with monkeytroll on the wheels, depends what wheels you have in mind, the red caped wheels would look great orkified. The bumper looks great.

Great winch. Also looks like it could double as one of those old fashioned clothing dryers...wringers they were called? Useful for drying the garments after washing the blood and gore from them

Any way to get a more 'steel cable' look to the winch cable? They all have that woven/braided/twisted look to them. Or will you paint that on?
