Re: snap ring pliers

I've tried a clip removal tool but could not get the right size. So instead i use the following simple tools and process: 1) clamp gear in vise (careful not to over tighten) 2) use the point of a awl or a suitably sized nail to secure one side of clip 3) use small screw driver to flex clip out of gr...

Re: JJH Replica using Classic RC10

Feeling pretty motivated, I decided to make the chassis mods. For those that haven't attempted this mod, it is pretty challenging. The metal is very tough to cut and almost brittle. The effort took me no less than 6 tools (Tin Snips, Hacksaw, Dremel, Milling Machine, Hand Files, and Sand Paper). I'm...

Re: JJH Replica using Classic RC10

Here is the JJH Replica re-assembled to the modified Chassis. I ended up sanding all of the edges on the chassis for consistency. I realize this isn't historically accurate, but I really liked the finished look. Some of the other mods/additions: 1) Antenna mount installed on the right wing tube - St...

Re: JJH Replica using Classic RC10

The electronics are starting to come together. 1) Receiver - I am using items I had, so unfortunately need to work with a receiver with the wrong plug type. 2) ESC - The control wiring had been mangled by the original owner with a g-plug mod, so I converted it back using the same cut lines and clean...

Re: JJH Replica using Classic RC10

Other additions include: 1) Wing Buttons - I fabbed the Yokomo style wing buttons on my mini-lathe. 2) Front Shock Tower - I made two seperate attempts to Rit...

Re: JJH Replica using Classic RC10

The body came back from DarkSideDesigns. Very impressed with the quality of work. Trimming the body is a bit stressful, because I didn't want to damage the nice paintwork.

Re: JJH Replica using Classic RC10

Here's the status as of today (Autographics #6, JG Mfg Decal - Wrong Blue). It turns out there are over 60 mods/purchased items that are needed for this project. I have a detailed spreadsheet I will post once finished. As you can see, I still have a long way to go on finding the remaining decals. Ca...
