Zax13 Erecting Gelande Gen 2

Post by Zax13 on Sun 5 Apr 2015 - 0:00

My latest build which I think most guys would already have or already saw others making on you tube will be the RC4WD G2. This kit have been out i think about a year and finally I got a chance to built it.
As usual RC4WD packaging is always top notch with its ever poisoning graphics in the front calling out to people like me to spend.  Laughing



Whats inside the box. RC4WD coloured instruction manuals plus some bulletin for amendments from the manuals.



Underneath the manual is the first layer foam tray with the fwd and aft yota axle which was similar but an updated design from the TF2. Compared with the previous Gelande 1 which came with the t-rex 60 axle, this is all metal. On the same tray you could see the transmission and the transfer case as well. On the left are the fwd and rear bumper with the left & right body fitting for the body. As you can see the items all are nicely pack snug in its own slot. Awesome packaging!  Very Happy



Next try is the ladder frame and the interconnecting  brackets to hold the frame together. The shock mounts as packed together nicely on this tray.



Next layer is where the hardwares and fastener together with the wheel set sit. Most bottom is the d90 body packed in a box with shrink wrap. Its like having a package within a package. Laughing




Thats it for introduction of the unboxing and layout of the items. Next I will start on the build progress.

First up... Like any of my other projects I would basically open up all the axles, transmission & transfer case. Check every single one and pack it with marine grease.





Don't forget about the amendment notice as well while working with the necessary parts.



Rather then tearing apart the axle again. I took liberty of buying some hop ups in advance.
Here is the ARB diff covers.





Assembling the axle with marine grease already packed inside.




Same goes for the transfer case and the transmission. Not forgetting to put a dab of thread lock before securing the screws.




Next attaching the linkage of the fwd and rear axles.





Assembling the ladder frame. All the hardware and fasteners are pack in their own plastic bags that make it so easy for even beginners.



One side of the frame done.



Looking more closer to the end product...



Servo stand off...



Another 2 Hop up items came in just in time for this rig.   Smile




Continue on installing the fwd and aft axles.






The drive shaft included in the kit is made of plastic. Dont really know how tuff it is but for the time being it will do. Would really appreciate if RC4WD would include a metal one.






Connecting the shaft into position.




Another hop up that came is the fuel cell radio box.





The chassis almost ready for electronic wiring.

I took sometime to think of a good colour to paint the Landy body. Finally I decide to go with blue with a white roof. Im not going to go through the process of how to paint the body. Those who wanna know can go through my other build thread to find out more. Here is the end product after paint and with 3 to 4 coat of clear matte paint. I decide to give it a more personal touch with some diamond plates. Wink










Some scale lights with grilles




Wiring in progress with a custom design light unit, bought off one of the members here.




Added a Winch...



Added a side guard...



New sets of rims came in to replace the stock ones. This will put a bit more weight for the already high cg Landy body.



Finally, here is the completed out look on the this Gelande 2 project.













On top of this I fitted a sound module to make the model sound realistic. Below is the video take on the Gelande 2 full functions.



Hope you guys enjoy the build. Till next time. CHEERS!

Dont get me wrong... It is greased but at a limited amount. If you intend to trail in a puddle u might need to re grease it with marine grease just to be safe.

Added a smoke unit that i bought from asiatees. Have to bend a brass tube to channel the exhaust smoke to the right locations. Here is a vid of how the whole thing looks like.
