Further Description/Back Story When Covid came around, I was looking for something to help with my time. I have built many scale crawlers, so I was going that route. I bought the kit with no idea of where it was going to go. Once the kit was together I needed to decide on a body. I wanted a hard body, and I wanted a jeep….but not one like everyone else. I found the Ossum body on Thingaverse, and started printing multiple scales of it until I found the one I liked, and seemed to fit the chassis the best. From there….it was just making it all work. It has a ssd trans/transfercase so I could have a true engine under the hood, and didnt have to cutup the firewall. The fuel cell in the rear hold the battery and the cover is held there by 4 magnets. The camo canvas is from an old backpack. It was a great project, and close to my favorite.
