Scale 4x4 Presents

Let’s meet one of our Top Builds

The scale RC hobby has come a very long way in the last dozen or so years. There once was a time where if you wanted something and it wasn’t available, you made it yourself. MrMunster had a desire to have a mini version of his 1:1 Series III Land Rover and took scale building to an all new level. From the hand formed aluminum panels, to the 1mm screws fastening body panels together, this build is nothing short of spectacular. He has real glass windows that slide, doors that open and close, and unlike most real Land Rovers, this one works.
MrMunster’s Land Rover build is one of the reasons we have the Top Builds Section and we are pleased to say that his build can now be found here.
Hand formed aluminum body

Yes, that is a working door latch.

Scale dents as well

Won’t you come on in and take a look through this amazing build.

Tamiya's Toyota FJ Cruiser Special Edition
Written by Matt   
Friday, 18 September 2015

The Toyota FJ Cruiser is a retro style SUV with styling and off road performance reminiscent of the original Toyota FJ40 Land Cruisers. It was first introduced to the public as a concept car at the January 2003 North American International Auto Show. The FJ Cruiser was later approved for mass production after positive consumer response and it debuted at the 2005 North American International Auto Show in final production form.

The Tamiya R/C replica faithfully captures all of the full size FJ's details down to the large headlights positioned near the center of the front of the car, chunky fenders, and a trio of windscreen wipers. The FJ body is mounted on the capable CC-01 Cross Country chassis, which features independent front suspension and a rear 4-link rigid suspension set up for fun scale trail running enjoyment. This Limited Edition special release includes a pre-painted body, making it easier and quicker for the modeler to get his machine on the off-road trails.

Axial Wraith Spawn Kit

Axial has sent us their latest kit to check out; the Wraith Spawn!

The Axial Wraith™ Spawn kit version is packed with performance features and option parts that you add as you build it. The virtually bulletproof AR60 OCP axles are ready to take the Spawn through its paces whether blasting through the wide open desert or hammering its way through the toughest rock trails. The 2.2 Maxxis Trepador tires are a proven true grip standard, wrapped around industry proven Method IFD™ beadlock wheels. Whether you are rock racing or backyard bashing, the Wraith™ Spawn is ready for action.         

The Spawn showcases Axial's newest purpose designed body.

"For the Wraith Spawn RTR, and now the kit version, Axial wanted to create a body that had a classic feel with modern styling. Just as we have seen in the use of retro designs in the auto industry, with cars like the Dodge® Challenger, we have also seen off-roaders use classic trucks in modern builds. To implement this idea, our Design and Marketing teams brainstormed and discussed some of our favorite trucks and SUVs from the late-70s and early-80s. Taking those vehicles into consideration, the Design team then studied the iconic styling cues of these vehicles and began sketching ideas. As a result, we developed those ideas and created a unique retro styled Axial SUV body - the Spawn."

Since we've built a Wraith before there won't be anything here on the build unless necessary, but the body is another story. I am open to suggestions on paint scheme. If you saw the YETI build then you saw the body I did for that, so I'm up for another custom scheme.
