Wow, that is some engineering :!: This weekend I was at the scrapyard looking for some bits and pieces - I came accross plastic guide for a windo frame. It is about 6mm wide and 3 mm thick with a channel in it with wiper for the glass. Tomorrow I will try and form it under heat. If it works, I can put a screen cut from some PPE packaging in it.... let's see - scrapyard challenge :lol:

Wow! Looks really good.
Have my bumpers and windscreen still not painted and no roll bar fitted. Hope that will be finished for Moke 50. :roll:

I have not read this thread yet, so I might be repeating somethings?
This is my second r/c moke built circa 1989, it was based on a Tamiya boomerang, but converted to front wheel drive!
My first attempt was the infamous prisoner moke model built circa 1987 and based on the Tamiya lancia rally car, now owned by Paul Beard.
I might be wrong but I believe these pre date other moke r/c models?

Sorry, but the above shells are no longer available. I was in contact with Christoph Hoffmann (the guy who made them) last year after the IMMM. He wanted to check a remake but I never got a positive feedback. So the above ones were really the last ones.
I believe the only chance is to make a shell out of thin sheets of plastic or metal.
