Boolean21's AEV Jeep Brute 1/10 scratch build

Post by boolean21 on Thu 20 Sep 2012 - 1:20

Finally... found some time to start on the next project... Smile

fell in love with the American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) Jeep Brute....
now trying to make a brute in 1/10... it's going to be a slow slow build... a bit at a time... Smile

was thinking of cutting up a Tamiya Jeep YJ body and continue from there, but thought i should start from scratch... if it fails... then i'll fall back to using the jeep yj body method... Smile

here are some photos of the AEV Jeep Brute


drawn the body on the computer....


the body panels and the front grill....


lazy to print them out, trace on cardboard, cut out the cardboard and trace on the styrene.... so i tried a new method... cut the panels on stickers!


pasted the stickers onto the styrene and trace out the outline... saved a little time...


here's the front grill...


cut up the headlights and the holes in the front grill....

All right! Now I know why we haven't seen you at the last 2 trails Very Happy
Looks to me like it might be quite a challenge to get all the curves and round parts on the body. Looking forward to see how you get it done.

What chassis will you use?

Argh.... I love building, but would rather spend Sunday morning at the trails than staying home to build... Very Happy
Yeah, I foresee that I will be working on the hood for quite some time... Very Happy

Chassis would likely be a custom one as usual... Smile

I also want to know leh. The round part look very smooth and clean cut. I have problem cutting straight lines even with 2mm thickness. Yours is 2.5mm right?

Still havent file or sand it yet.... Should look ok after sanding.... Smile

some updates today... midnight oil started burning at 11pm+... Smile

cut out the window panels... drilled some holes at the curved section and dremel-ed the straights...


made a bonnet out of foam boards... laminated 3 pieces together to form the thickness... then sanded it.... mocked up on the panels to see how it looked....


sticking the side of the trucks in position...


followed by attaching the front grill...


further sanded the bonnet and see how it looked....


mocked it up on a spare chassis to make sure the size is ok....
will likely not be using this chassis and wheel set... still undecided whether want to put t-rex 60 or axial axles under it..


thats all for this session.... Smile

still long way ahead... foam needs to be reinforced, and more styrene works... etc etc....

thanks for looking. Smile

Superb! Coming together quite quickly. The grill looks really nice and spot-on. Did you use a body reamer for the head light holes?

Post by boolean21 on Sat 20 Oct 2012 - 12:55

some minor updates... had a little time this morning to fiddle with the brute....

preparing to cut the front and rear windscreen panel
the shape and scale is based on the Jeep.... but it seems like too rounded for the brute.... hmmm... maybe i should keep the sides straight instead...
in the end, didn't cut it out yet just in case i change my mind....


sanded and coated the bonnet a second time with wood putty.... next round will be more sanding and coating if required.... this should make the foam ready for normal aerosol paint.... Smile i hope! Razz
