Hello! After 2 years of inactivity, and a lot of started project (which will be finished one day...) i decided to build again something floaty.

I've seen a youtube video of some awesome Mud Boats, and i thought, ok why not making one?

it is simple, fun and speedy!

 

So.... Here's the idea. A simple boat. *Simple*. i always wanted to make something simple, easy to use, but not boring. And here's my idea.

A simple all metallic boat, with a hard and strong hull, used into swamps and mud canals, for the fun of everybody.

 

And here i start.... from a youtube video as reference, i made the first hull...

I worked on this lil thing only in my free time, which lately is very few.

I moved to France and heh, in 2 months i fried 4 laptops (Old ones... ok) but finally i have a decent PC!

Anyway, back to the topic...

 

i added its engine, which is quite well exposed. Love it. It is still a Work In Progress (WIP).

yeah as usual, i added tons of little useless details :D like the bolts and stuff.... 

here's a little detail of the engine pivot:

now i added the handle where the driver holds while piloting. Boat is fast and mud dumps are a lot, so gotta keep tight to that :D And to make the boat's hull more solid, 2 little spars inside the hull. Don't stumble on them while walking.

Aaaaand so on. You know that i'm a maniac of detail, so, even if this is a simple boat, DO expect to find it very well detailed. I'll show you something, still WIP.

this is the protection rubber for the pipe that brings fuel to the engine from the front tank (which you'll have to refill by lifting the hatch on the front and unscrewing the cap :P ) and the electricity cables for the frontlights

Home made hook:

Ignition. Hope you like the keyholder!

Just to say that i'm a detail maniac... here's the two switches for Light and Fuel Pump, still to wire up:

So far this is the result... it's still missing the electrical wires, the fuel pump, the frontlights and some other thing i won't tell for now :P

Hope you like it. I love the little project.

Now the bad and the good news. Let's start with the bad.

My dream for this boat is to see a lot of funny races with it, with jumps, swamps, or even skidding on lands for few meters. It won't be a very complicated boat to use.

Just keep an eye on the fuel tank as that's the only thing you'll have to check to keep running ahead. ;) As the real one, you won't have indicators. 

And as i want to keep it very simple, it won't have couple poses. More lightweight. (and you would not f*** on a piece of cold metal dirty of mud!).

 

The good new?

This boat will be completely free! I'll deliver a fun toy, well made and perfectly functional (Who knows my boats, knows how i work. I try to do the best). 

And i think that's a good new, i hope.

Why free? Why not?! :)

Good night and let me know what do you think of this lil fun project.

 

Bonus  -> my reference: (ok no frontlights on this, but i've seen them on another one and they are awesomely awesome!)

We're getting close to the last model version.

it's missing some more details ( tools in the box, and some other sort like the engine fuel injector eh... :D )

Little detail of the main fuel thank and the auxiliary one.

can you add GTFO to it (or distribute as mod)? I'm pretty sure you could haul small amounts of moonshine with that baby.
