Default Orlandoo 1/35 OH35A01 Jeep crawler build

Started out with a Orlandoo OH32A02 Pajero and like it so well I bought the OH35A01 Jeep to go along with it.



The weather was nice here today so I started by painting the main color. The wife wanted to paint it baby blue so that is what color it got painted.



The fenders and roof/back of cab will be flat black. Have to wait for another warm day to finish painting it. In the mean time I'll start building the chassis when I'm not working on the track for it and the Pajero.

Started assembling the Jeep today.




Front diff is all assembled and the servo is mounted



Rear diff assembled and ready to go

This build is going much better than my Pajero. Building it I used the enclosed tools, small phillips screwdriver & L hex wrench. It was a total pain trying to get the balls started using a L hex. For the Jeep build I got a 1.9mm hex driver and a #00 JIS driver which is the Japanese version of the US phillips screwdriver. The JIS screwdriver holds the screws better and has a bigger handle so it's easier to use. Have to use caution not to over tighten the screws as you have more leverage with the bigger handle. Don't throw the phillips that came with the kit away, there are a couple of places you will need it to finish tightening the screws as space is limited.

The next step was building the rods



Completed rods installed on the diffs



Had a problem with the Pajero splitting rod ends along the rod. I re-enforced the ends with 1.5mm shrink tubing 5mm long. After shrinking I'm hoping that this will give the some added strength. Only time will tell if this theory works.



Next came the assembly of the frame





The combo kit came with a 150 motor ass did the Pajero. IT crawls okay but is a little on the slow side. So I'm putting a 300 motor in the Jeep.



Installed the diffs on the chassis

Skipped the step of installing the LEDS for now. I'll do this after a couple of test drives. The next step in building the front & rear driveshafts. Hopefully this goes better than it did for the Pajero.

Finished up the Jeep today, well except for the lights. Started with the driveshafts. Kind of wishing I would have ordered the aluminium ones. For me I think that is one of the hardest things to do. At least this time is was easier than last time. I did discover that after putting the square block with the pins in the 1st piece, I start by putting them in the pinned block in the shaft end. I then used a tapered tooth pick behind the block to hold it in place while I put the ends on.




Completed driveshafts

I used XL-Racing's wheel mod to give it a bigger stance




I thought he used the stock wheels but when I did the mod to the stock wheels when I installed them and tightened the wheel nut the wheels wouldn't turn. I think it's the way the spokes are bent. Does look good with the reversed wheels.

Test fitted the electronics. Thought I could mount them the same way I did the Pajero but the esc hit the windshield so I have to come up with a new plan. I cut the tabs off the transmission that I used to mount the rx and esc in the Pajero. This way I can mount the esc & rx lower in the chassis to help to keep the cg as low as possible.

I don't think there is any way I could solder the small LEDs for the rear so I bought some 3mm red LEDs for the tail lights. Modified the bracket to the LED could stand straight up and down. The makes it fill the entire lens when it's on instead of a bright red dot in the center.

Thought I was done with all the wiring and soldering, plugged in the batter and turned it on and I only had 2 lights one front, one back. The rear one had a broken wire. Not sure about the front yet. Eyes were crossed by this time and supper was ready so I'll figure that out at a later date or it might just have one headlight out. :-)

Wow, those wires get busy quick. I expect my Jeep to be delivered today with a cheap hobbyking radio. Here's hoping that the RX is small.

That's why I went with the Tatic TXX300 the rx that comes with them is small and the antenna is built in so there is no antenna wire hanging around.

I cleaned up my wiring and it looks much better now.

Reversed the wheels to give the Jeep a little wider stance, as per suggestion of XL-Racing. Plus I'm a little ole school and I like the looks wheels with some offset to them.

The mirror got knocked off in a roll over, I have the mirror just haven't glued it back on yet. The door handle I don't have a clue. Guess I need to order the tree & get another one.
