Not quite working on a Jimny, but thought I'd share another passion I have for RC trucks.

Have been building this one for the last 3yrs and finally got it all done with correctly working lights.



For those interested its Tamiya 1/14 scale truck full RC, even the Kingpin and landing gear on the tailers are RC too. Will try and get a couple of pictures of it with the trailers attached, assuming the table extends enough, it's already 630mm long :blink: :whistle: :laugh: :laugh:

SWMBO is also enjoying the new build of a Mercedes Actros truck, soon to be followed by an RC boat. I think with the Jimny it might be 1 to many hobbies :lol: :lol: :lol:

2" lift, 215/75 r15 Dynapro MTs, steering damper, snorkel and slightly mad owner!

Nice. I am an RC fan myself.

Do it right - use Hammerite
When the blue light is flashing I am kidding.

I like anything R/C the truck is great I have an original Hotshot I'm restoring at the moment and I use to race touring cars at a local club, I think the jimny is cheaper though :D

Yesterday I used the Jimny to access some local private woodland for a sneaky overnight camp. Parked just off the road and walked in, as its in the grounds of a local posh hotel. :evil:

Always fancied a Hotshot but never quite got there, just about to try and resurrect my old Tamya Frog so my little lad can rag the backend out of that Esther than the trucks.

I also have a 1/10 scale pickup rock crawler type which I'm a little less worried about. Managed to bust the wing mirror off on its very first outing trying to go up the slide in the back garden :silly: :silly: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

1066, that's a damn fine looking camp site you've got going on there! Keep that one to yourself otherwise you'll have everyone gate crashing it :laugh: :laugh:

Today I mostly drove up to Shropshire with 93 million miles of headroom in today's glorious sunshine with my son, to meet up with my brother and his lad.
My brother hankers after another Jimny - he owned an O2 for many years and did a lot of off-roading with it.
He persuaded me to take mine up to Clee Hill near Ludlow for some very gentle off-road "tuition" around an old quarry - which frankly had me fairly nervous at times but we had a great afternoon. For me this was the first time of the beaten track.

Later on I drove back home to the Cotswolds roof still fully down. Fab!
Only 40 mins after getting home we had a spectacular thunderstorm for entertainment, but luckily not before I'd got the roof back in place! :)

Superb RC course there, just wish there was a take up for this type of thing in the UK. Most of the clubs I can find are a fair distance from the wilds of Worcestershire.

Max, good looking looking roofless Jimny there, now wishing I'd gone the same route. As for the thunderstorm it looked fairly spectacular from our window, but mostly hidden behind bredon hill. Still it lit up the sky well.
