Small detail that was bothering me for some time:

Long time ago,I've ordered a Axial parts tree only for the door handles. Not lazyness, only lack of skills. But the tree only had 2 so they went to the doors. Now, I can do stuff out of Styrene

Also carved the holes, they're not painted because I'm doing underside detail on the hood

The guys who print my stuff offered to model and print an Unimog engine so I took the chance.

straight from the printer:

It could be more detailed but i wanted to add parts later. The sizing isn't true scale but there's space constraints on the place, there's the 540 and the servo over there

First, exhaust manifold, turbo and an alternator

Then, the intake manifold

The engine driven air compressor for the onboard air tank

Injector lines

Turbo Downpipe

In place

It will not be a perfect replica but it's enough to cover the motor and servo. Needs more stuff like air filter, pulley belts, some pipes and paint
