I would see a front diff in the central axle.

Cannot wait to see the rest Wink

So where's the motor?
Front-back or back-back?
How do you get power to the third axle?
Enquiring minds want to know!

^^ I'm guessing this also. Take out the propshaft and the spacing between halfshafts created by bolting the front diff straight onto the gearbox is your rear axle spacing.

Still rear engined and the front axle is probably unpowered.

All I'll say for the moment is that it'll rear engined, use a Syncro gearbox (with modifications) for the rear axle and a standard front differential with Viscous Coupling from Viscowerkstatt Kern. https://vw-kern.at/

The design for the drive to the centre axle is in my head. It will be based on Syncro parts. I don't have a huge pot of money to be able to ask someone to make everything one-off.

All wheels will be driven. A true 6WD vehicle.

AHHHH.....
Understood.
This is still a work in progress.
[Insert VERY encouraging words HERE]
I await, with baited breath, a finalized drivable specimen.....

I won't upload any of the detailed photos that I took since MG is keeping his cards close to his chest, but the design and execution is simply superb

If you manage to work out the drive system, I will declare this a unique build.
Otherwise there are THESE
