I am VERY impressed with these trucks.
The thing I cannot understand is why someone isn't offering conversion kits or finished vehicles you could drive around an O scale layout. Most of all, I'd want a US 1930s delivery truck or a US Army Ambulance from WW2. Either would allow for all the 'guts' for such a conversion.
I'd pay top dollar for something like that, as I do NOT have the skills to make one myself.
I didn't express myself well. Most R/C vehicles are constructed and sold to the toy market. Giles work is one of an engineer/modeller who has had to construct something quite specific for his hobby. Much like the way modellers construct scenery or build a loco or carriage.
R/C aircraft and boats in similar, though ready to run is more avaible, but not perhaps 1:43 scale.
