Steve's T3 Build

Postby Skudster13 » Tue Apr 29, 2014 9:02 pm

Well, I spent most of the day yesterday debating on what I wanted to do officially. Being on the low budget, I decided that a T3 would be an easy start. It's boxy and fairly easy to build which will allow me to hone my skills for a mightier task next time. As money is an object it's likely to be a static display, but I'll give it everything I can. I drew up some basic prints for the body to guide me on my way.

Definitely keep feeding us the eye candy and good luck with the project!

Awesome! Just leave some room in the feet for motors.

You know you'll want to add them ;)

Check out Moose Mendolia's T3 build on his website www.r2-cm.com. You'll probably have to do a search on his website since he built it two years ago. I know there were several videos of it on youtube.
