I finally got around to trying my hand at a triple axle vehicle. Been wanting to do one for a while and as I had a few F-350 casts around with no plans I put them to use.
Stock and custom. I've been buying these MBX F-350s when ever I see them as I like the stake side bed and have used it on a few customs now. I'm not into this vehicle really but hate seeing a cast go to waste and my hands were idol...
I'll tidy up the paint and add some details before handing the keys over to Sonzilla. He has already expressed interest in owning it. :)
I really hope MBX has done a similar set up for the upcoming 6x6 G Wagen UTE!! This is a no cost setup and there are no springs or other technology used to get this working. It’s a very simple arrangement. The center axle attachment is left stock. The front and rear axles have an elongated axle slot in the interior part. The front is only minor, around 2mm but the rear has about 4/5mm of extra slot. The stock cast has ‘floating’ axles already so there's no tabs holding the axles to deal with.

Unfortunately the stock wheelbase was a little short so a small stretch was required as well as adding the rear axle. The cargo box was left over from a Hot Wheels Hiway Hauler wheel donor.
Happy weekend everyone!
