QUOTE (minimental @ 5 Oct 2004, 17:42)hi does anyone know of any mini moke models in 1/32 scale?
Academy make one in 1/35th scale. It comes in various guises but the one I have is like this. I haven't made mine up yet. I'm a fan of tiny (miniscule) slot cars but with this one it's even harder trying to find somewhere to put the motor. Also, being 1/35th makes it even smaller. I picked mine up on ebay about a year ago for a very reasonable sum (£3 I think). I just did a search for a 'mutt' and came up with this and a couple of others if you're interested.
Had to dig around in the attic a while to find it. The mutt is about 9cm by 4cm. As with other military kits, it comes in about a billion pieces, they can't just give you a body and a chassis! There is an undertray, which is what I've given you the dimensions of. This forms the basis of the kit to which everything else is glued. This might make it more difficult to convert as you'll have to use this undertray and somehow mount running gear into it. Not impossible, but not straightforward.
Thanks for your comments re the baja. It's made from a Tamiya Mini 4wd kit. Again off ebay although I think some suppliers in Japan may still have some stock of these. The scale is fairly close to 1/32, it looks OK next to a pink kar one. There's more about this in another thread here. If you need more info, get back to me.
The floor on the real thing was one thickness of sheet metal, about 0.035" IIRC. And it only has 10" wheels so there's almost zero ground clearance, one reason why both our Army and the US Army decided against buying them. The Australian Army did though.
