NRC 1/32 RC10 project build

Post by limestang »

In 2017 Shapeways published a project designed and built by Nigel Ratcliffe - 1/32 scale RC10.

Here is a link to the article:

I was able to correspond with Nigel last year, and have been gathering the parts needed to build one. The photos below are some of his masterpieces.

Nile pre warned me of difficulty finding the parts as well as challenge with assembling the tiny components - he was correct (see m1.4 screw size). There’s been a few instances I’ve had to double up on my reading glasses to assemble :lol:

Some of the off the shelf parts come off of the Losi Micro-t. Here is the trans with an aftermarket alloy housing.
