1/16 Willys Jeep

I've started work on a 1/16 Jeep.

I'm building it as a static model that can be converted to RC. Been away a lot so I've had plenty of time designing bits on the laptop but not much time for printing and building.

First time printing with ABS. Worked great, only 0.25 mm too long and no warping. It stuck to the glass plate so well that bits of glass can up with it as I peeled it off. So no more ABS until I get a replacement build plate.

Re worked the front end-

Sub frame and springs-

Wheels and tyres

Got some more done-

It's on a stand while I sort out the height of the suspension.
