Guest Blog from Lukáš Cajkář on creating remote controlled models
Lukáš caught our attention online with his amazing videos of the SK850LC remote controlled model, such great attention to detail deserves a spot on our blog to show other like minded collectors and model makers. Let us know in the comments what you think.

My name is Lukáš Cajkář. I am 25 years old, I live in the Czech Republic and I work as a mechanical designer.
Modelling has accompanied me all my life, but it wasn't until a few years ago that I started building remote-controlled construction machines.
I try to build the most realistic models and at the same time make them functional and fun. I don't just have them on the shelf.
My machines are mostly 3D printed. Therefore, first I must draw such a model on a computer.
No construction equipment manufacturer will provide drawings, so I get the dimensions from the catalogues and photos of the real machine.
Watch the Video by Lukáš of the SK850LC model in action.
I create all models in a scale of 1:16. All models are powered by electricity and each model has a three-cell li-pol battery, receiver, controllers for motors and lighting.
My first model was a CAT D10 dozer. The second machine was a Kobelco SK850LC excavator and now I am building a Terex TA400 dumper.
I would like to show my models at events. Unfortunately, today with Covid-19 this is not allowed.
You can watch the video of this model in action and more of Lukáš's online videos on his YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb4KGU558Sn8gTI3jnAoecA
