Default Pistenbully 600 w/ Pc - Body 90% done!

Hi

I copied my 4x4scale thread here and now I'm going to add updates to here too!

I've always wanted to build something with tracks and then I found this machine. I thought I would do my PB a little bit different than usual one is and will make passenger cab on it. Maybe in the future snow blower in the front. My PB is in 1:10 scale.

1:1 machine



Passenger cab



1:10 beast
Making tracks, I have done about 1500 holes and have a lot of to do <_<





Chassi almost done, needs only sprockets and springs for suspension.





Just random pictures through the time:























But **** it takes so much time to do this thing, it will be a long build.


Tell me what ya think!
And I'm sorry for my poor English, still learning, I'm just 16 years old.

Loving what I see, and drilling all those holes, you must have a lot of patience. Keep up the very talented work buddy. I'll be watching this one for sure.

I'm glad you like guys and thanks for the nice feedback!
Holidays are now over so I won't give so fast updates anymore, now I have to wait for summer to get everything done.

Some pictures:







Bought a new tool to improve building speed/quality. Very nice machine



Next weekend I want to finish building cab's exterior and move on to interior.
I have to visit car painting store and get some more putty, epoxy and something called "rubber sealing", good stuff to finish the body
I have to find a good LED kit too, anyone has got something? I always push searching for a one to the future
Thanks for looking,
Madda

You are doing a fabulous job!!!!! I have always wanted a PistenBully, I've toyed with buying one from PistenKing.

Keep up the excellent work!

Thanks guys!

If you have snow in your area then buy it, it is very cool to plow snow when sitting in your house.
I try to add updates every week.

Some more work done (you can see a lighter for size comparison):







Head lights seem to be very big in the pictures, in real life they look smaller, don't know why it is so.
Now are the basic curves of the cab ready, a lot of sanding is waiting me
Next I'm going to start adding details: interior, mirrors, front emblem, rotating lights, muffler, glasses etc. Some of them will be laser cut and maybe even 3d printed.
I wanted to do a test drive in snow but found that I have screwed mounting bolts to one of the motors too deep inside and now it is making wierd noises. Have to find a guy who can repair it.

Thanks for looking!

Looks great!

Sorry to hear about the motor problem.
I guess the screws are too long and reach into the gearbox?
I would hope that if you use a shorter screw, it would work and didn't do too much damage.
Or maybe I did not completely understand, and the problem is more serious?

Yes, the problem is a little bit more serious. When I first mounted the motors, I didn't knew that the screws have to be quite short and screwed little bit longer screws in. Then I did some testing and found out that one of the motors cases is broken because of that. Then I repaired it myself but now it is still broken, have to find a better guy to handle this.
Another problem is that new motor is another 50 bucks and for me 3 weeks of waiting so buying new is the last option for me.

Another update to keep you informed:













So I took one of my motors apart and found out that this thin spacer was behind all that noise, without it everything runs flawlessly. I don't know why this motor doesn't like this spacer. And I didn't put it in a wrong place, checked it twice.

Next time I hope to finish interior and move on to passenger cab. I want to make ready rough edges on everything and then add all the details and do the sanding. I will also make new headlight housings because I don't like them at all!
I will another update in the evening, my lights will then arrive and I want to make some progress in my plow drawing.





Thanks for looking!

Plow finally ready:







Some of the details I will make myself when plow is "real". Scale size would be 540mm, mine is 538mm, pretty good.
Got my light kits:



22 lights total, in the weekend I will try to make all of the lights working ( even 4 beacons) and make a video.

Thanks for looking!

I am in awe of the magnitude of the project that you have undertaken! To me, this talent you have is nothing short of amazing....your focus and attention to detail is remarkable. I have been a life-long enthusiast of anything with wheels, tracks, and hydraulics. Add snow to the equation and you got me hooked. I've driven/operated a variety of stuff from over the road trucks to off-road loaders and excavators, but nothing captures my attention more than what your'e building. Keep up the good work, and please continue to post your progress.

Effinay , WOW! It is always very nice to hear such comments! Attention to detail is not very remarkable, chassis could look more scale but to be honest, I didn't know a thing about lasers and CNC's and made all by hand and making more scale wold have been much difficult. I'll try to keep you updated!
If you want to watch more pictures of the build you can go to scale4x4rc.org and watch my thread there.

Another update:

Soldered all the LED's together, now there are 20 of them. I only soldered one beacon ready because it is easier to make them ready after the body is done (you can see it in the video).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfkifuDicOk (how to get it showing in the thread? In this forum it doesn't work?)

Pretty statisfied with the result.

So this is how much wires I've got already, I don't want to think how it will look when the servos etc cables will be included, very tight fit indeed.



I started making the seats, they are the last things i will make for the interior, other parts will be milled. I didn't have time on Sunday to finish them so here are some shots ( you can see the new heavy duty putty i bought ) :



Made new headlight housings, I didn't like the last ones. Lucky me that it turned out good this time because i had to make the front bumper again 4 times and I didn't want to repeat that uke:



Thanks for looking!
