The r/c is a new bright 1/28th scale hummer $5.96 at Wallyworld. I cut the front end off including the steering motor and mechanics, took the rear wheels off the axle and did some chopping on the back to let the Bachmann wheels off of a 4-6-0 front truck spin free. they were drilled and pressed on the rear and the front is the actual truck from the 4-6-0 cut down. The Tudor model is a goodguys 3n1 1/29th scale that has all been welded together for strength. The batteries are all part of the chassis, the boxes on the sides are tool boxes hidding the batterie compartment. And one batterie AA was removed or not put in to slow the speed down for a more realistic speed. And any color as long as its Black paint.
