Making a 4mm Radio Control Truck Pt1

This story starts with the O gauge layout ‘The End Of The Line’ and Giles work on developing a 16mm Radio Control Truck (http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/18108-radio-controlled-road-vehicle-and-powered-gantry-crane/)

When I first saw this truck I was fascinated. Searching the net indicates that the Germans have managed to make radio control vehicles in HO (1:87), thus it should be possible to create a radio control truck in OO (1:76).


As our UK model market generally lags behind our German and American cousins, I decided that I should have a crack at this.

I have purchased a complete starter conversion kit (which arrived from Germany today) and I now need to start preparing to construct the vehicle.

The first steps will be trying to understand the German instructions (a challenge!!!!), understanding all the components, and finding a suitable OO truck for the conversion.
