having fun with rc

I'm building my second Windridder 737 , and trying to develope new
ways of finishing it to make it more scale:

But i alway's felt that this is supost to be fun , so I decided to take
a break for a quick fun project .

almost every flight of a 737 starts with a pushback from the gate
from a special tractor. so i thought why not build a pushback
tractor .

I looked in the junk pile and there was an old rc toy 4x4 truck
that would make the perfact bed for my little project.
this is more my own design that what real one look like but it was
fun

Looks great!

Really nice job on this! Make sure you have a union driver and guideman for that push tractor. Oh, and don't forget a breakaway coupling link for the towbar, cause those guys are forever swinging the nose gear past the critical angle

Thanks ; we only had the open tractors at Piedmont/US Airways
so this is sort of my own design.
