The guy in the back of the truck must be operating the really super secret black box! Awesome job all around!

Or he's checking the ROVER feed before launch.

Thanks for caring, guys! :thumbsup:

Smart scooter! ;D

Also, flight controls. The GiB is using a remote control station from an EOD robot set* which I "repurposed" into a remote flight control box.



[*: the operator & box are available separately to the robot - the operator is the guy checking the systems with the laptop ... which originally came with the GiB as part of a Humvee crew.]

Landie could use a few more antennae- shark fin or baseball bat V/UHF antennae, a ROVER dome, etc.- indicating a GRC-206 in the back.  But is good, and a little modeled aspect.

I will ... eventually :rolleyes: ... make a roof-rack & a bullbar for this & the aerials & antenae will go on them but, for now, it's a stealth operations vehicle. ;)
