1:43 Morris J van

Recommended Posts

I've just finished converting an Autocult resin model of the Morris J van. A surprisingly small vehicle.

There's nothing ground-breaking about this one at all, however it did require a different approach to the front axle, due to everything being smaller than the previous lorries.

 

Whereas previously I have fabricated the stub axle assemblies incorporating 2mm dia rod to accept the flanged bearings, this time I profiled them 2D from 1mm brass using my Stepcraft INC mill. This allows a much more compact axle assembly (which was also CNC'd).

I've managed to squeeze in a 500mAh battery which should last a full day.
