Default PFB's Scaleoffroad XJ

Shipped from the Deutschland today!!!! Been saving my Euros for quite sometime now and finally pulled the trigger. Got it fully loaded with the currently available accessories. (though not all pictured) Had him paint it (you guessed it) flat black. Stefan also wanted to change mine up a little so he reversed the snorkel and painted the rack and light-guards. I may actually have some hesitations to rough this one up.....it'll pass More photos and some videos when it arrives!

Very slick, I like that flat black. It looks mean! And the total was?

Is he making those wheel nuts?

Its a regular tamiya wheel nut with a photo etched jeep emblem in it

Looks good dude, I think the rack and light guards look 100x better in black, thats how mine are too

so what are you doing with the other 2 bodies you have

Why doesn't anyone who asks the price take a look at the freakin site? You guys who ask look like a dumbass when they are listed on the site? If you are TOO lazy...around $3000 done and ready to roll built by Stefan. His work is second to NO ONE!

p.s. Pigeon looks really good. Make yourself some rock sliders BEFORE you ever hit the rocks. Will comfort the ouch. Oh and flip the highlift jack 180 so you don't break off the Jack's lift point. PM me if you don't know what I am saying.

Funny thing is that you can by a 1:1 ZJ for that price?! Ah, but who am I kidding, that is one top notch scaler there. I almost said model, lol. Really beautiful craftsmanship. I wouldn't let that thing touch anything other than carpet.


















Ok, I lied - that thing would be used and abused!!! Great purchase!

Negative. And for this one, I'll be bringing an airsoft gun to the shop to enforce the "Touching = Death" rule on my display shelf.

those are definitely awesome rigs; but for 2k plus i would expect more than hpi wheels and highlift tires. with stefans skills and connections this shouldn't be too hard
