Depending on how you do the seat back, an adult can drive it. The motors are two mobility scooter type motors so they have enough juice for an adult.

Started painting this week-end, just have some primer almost done. Ended up using 1/4 round on the edge since the CNC machine didn't round my edges on the outer body panels.

Paint is done- next time I wouldn't use automotive paint, seems like more work than it was worth. I'm thinking exterior house paint would be sufficient.

Anyway, here it is upside down and starting to install the brake and rear axle. It's been interesting so far, have an email out to find out where I should be mounting the axle as the manual and online sources aren't too specific. Might just be based on how the wheel looks in the arch at this point.

Brake is for a hand brake and a foot brake. Multiple parts that have to be assembled on the truck. After the brake I'll have the front axle to assemble and the steering. Then it's time for accessories. Looks like it should only be a few more days of work and then it's off to the races.

So after almost 2 years it actually runs. Just need a throttle box and then it will be ready for it's driving debut. Based on how my 3 year old drives her friend's vehicles I also need a remote stop...As soon as the snow melts I plan on getting some video of it running.

I'm embarking on a journey that might end up with me building a scale 1/2 D90. Any advice you can share? Did you buy everything from the Toylander company or came up with some of the stuff yourself?
How much did you spend so far on this?

It will take longer than you expect. My project went smoothly but I did use parts and plans from Toylander. I did it in stages so I don't have all the invoices but it was a couple hundred in parts.

I think Loic is crazy to think he has the time, but I'm looking forward to seeing him try anyway. I'll donate a LR emblem for it. You didn't really mean 1/2 scale did you?

Also looking forward to seeing yours run Alex.

How much were the plans? I want to do it and I was also thinking about making two toddler bed designs similar, for my youngest two, who are Rover nuts.

video

see if this works for video.

Plans with templates were about $60 with postage. The book gives you all the dimensions/instructions to build all the steel parts too.

Book? Was hoping for a blue print to stick on a piece of MDF and draw it!
I just placed my order with toylander, we'll see what I received.

The file did not work. The project opened in iMovie but I guess I'm missing something else?

Where did you source the drivetrain parts from? I spent a good amount of time looking for a lot of parts that will go together (bearings, shafts, rims, pulleys, etc) and it seems hard to find everything that'd go well together. I'm guessing there is no real standards and it's the Wild West when it comes to drivetrain.

Go next to your 90 and divide it's dimensions by two. It's not that big anymore... Maybe the right notation will help -> scale 1:2.

There is a forum for Toylander builders/owners. A lot of the guys have modified their projects based on arts they have sourced. Some have used go kart parts for the drive train and steering as well as 4 wheeler suspension parts.

I used the drive train parts from Toylander. But- in the "book" are the dimensions to fabricate your own. The wheels are really just wheel barrow wheels with a sprocket welded onto one or both for the chain off the motor or motors to turn. A lot of the guys dismantle a mobility scooter for the motor and some of the drive train components.

You will get a book and the blue prints. Take the blue prints to Kinkos or wherever and have them copied before you go gluing them onto MDF- or put them on cardboard and make a stencil. You'll want them to reference during the build in one piece.

I believe the toylander is a 1:4 replica and the kids and I fit in it. Any reason you are set on 1:2? The weight of 1:4 is pretty significant so I would assume 1:2 is going to be more (as in slower to run and a battery drain). Plus the 1:4 lets you use one sheet of MDF for the base and build it up from there. Unless you are doing a frame separately you aren't going to have as solid of a tub if you have to use more than one piece as the base.
