UGears Heavy Boy Truck VM-03 - Just a start
Check out my latest project
Those who have seen my previous articles will know I'm always working on some sort of model project. Here is my latest, the UGears Heavy Boy Truck VM-03. It only has 541 parts has a ranking of hard and is supposed to only take 8 to 9 hours to assembly. Well....as you may recall from my last build I'm not exactly going to build this one stock so it will take me a lot longer.
I've been working on this one for the last few weeks and here are some progress pics:
The rubber band motor is made up of 20 rubber bands. Just imagine that POWER!
Check out the mess of gears!! All wooden of course, like to leave these natural. the hear labeled '3' moves in an arc for Forward and Reverse.
Most of the gears for this model are located in this sandwich located underneath the cab of the truck
This is the bottom side of the motor. This plate rides against the chassis, hence the short bits of round stock to act like roller bearings.
This is the wooden disk that goes on top of the roller bearing plate in the previous picture
I have completed more but I'll save that for the next article.
