I have one on a converted Minitrix dock tank chassis (middle wheels removed) but doesn't look as good as yours!

I think that's one chassis that I'm not at all fond of - they wear like hell. The Arnold unit intended is definitely superior (even if it is 45+ years old!).

Cheers,

 :smiley-laughing: I ALWAYS profess to know nothing. It makes for an easier life!!!!

It, like the Caly look ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC Alan, another 2 wonderfully crafted pieces by your good self!!!

Surely a Zimo mx617n would fit under the cab floor  :o

@thebrighton mentioned the extension of the cab to fit the chassis, is that the little box on the back??

That looks the perfect size slot for a chip  :hmmm:

But I'll say one thing, I never believed I'd be name dropped by the good Dr himself  :o :D

That's far shrewder than it might first seem.

None of the above - the motor is large and takes up all those spaces. The place a MX616F would almost certainly fit is on top of the motor in the cab roof area. Tight, but the chassis surprisingly friendly as the motor is essentially completely isolated electrically from the chassis, wipers (that could be removed) provide the connection.

Cheers,
Alan
