The radio box. I still can't believe how big it has to be to fit that NOVAK in there, well I suppose the TQ3 is no Micro RX....LOL

looking even better
how does it hold up all the styrene attatched to the lexan? Any cracking at the joints?

Really like what you did to the body, already liked the chassis.

No idea, this is my test platform, I figured I'd use the free body to find out.

Well here she is, next is the aging process, I love aging paint jobs, no worries about prep while paint, any screw-ups become perfect rust spots...LOL

I do still have worries about the paint adhering well because of the Tamiya polycarbonate, but since I know that paint will stick using pactra as a base coat I'm not to worried, the real test is the polystyrene.



Just gotta love the electronics box.....

Whoa, that's a tough question, it's really not hard it just takes a little practice.

This one is all paint. Using flat enamels and acrylics. I started by detailing any paint flaws. I than washed the whole truck several times with a tan acrylic to dull the paint. I than went back with a rust, black and silver paint to make the rust areas. Once those dried I washed it again. Basically I keep adding layers to the whole truck until I think it looks right. I just added the last layer, flicking a brush with wet acrylic tan in it, gives the look of muddy splased water.

All you gotta do is build it.


Still a ways to go, but I think I'm done for tonight.

Your truck is the Sweetness man!
and I think your back yard is kickin butt!!

Love everything you have done to the truck and yard!.

I think in the back it would look cool with some wood peices some where.

I plan on getting another AX10 kit and doing a non tuber this time.
so i can have both.
because I really like detailing the bodies like you have done here!

great job!

I agree, this is a kick-@$$ build! Would almost be scale if not for the shocks and towers for them. BUt it still looks completely real too me. Styrene is fun to build with. You can really make anything out of it when you take the time. I am curious about the Styrene/Lexan adhesion though. I have wondered about it before.

Yea I'm always adding details as time goes on, I need to still add windows bungee tie downs, so who knows what will get added. Since this is a test truck I will have to push it to the breaking point, I need to know how strong the styrene to lexan is, once I know than I can really begin to detail lexan bodies.

Rock Crushers are WAY to BIG, but Mud Slingers would look really freakin cool, hmmmm that maybe just the tire I need, I was leaning towards mashers but I may try the 2.2 Mud slingers. Any idea how they handle the rocks? Especially wet or muddy? Axials don't do worth a crap.

Yea the Radio box was a late night thought that quickly went from paper to reality, the only problem is I'm not sure how I will ever do a standard radio box again....LOL

Holy crap! This is one of the baddest trucks I have seen. As far as the shock hoops go....leave 'em. You never know what some back country hick is gonna find to get his rig up and running. Maybe shocks from a combine or something.

Yea, function over form, I prefer springs to droop so long shocks, but also I was trying to use the box parts for the build, the shock towers are removeable should I decide to go with shorter shocks.

I plan to push the rig to find out how well the styrene to lexan holds up, I will post up the demise of kreaky so we will all know how far it can go. I have no doubt though that as a mudder or trail rig the styrene would stay in place, but it's on the rocks that concerns me.

LOL I've seen them shine the mud, I live in the Deep South, so I've seen it all.


Alright, windows are in, electronics are installed, bungee cords are holding things down.

The new camera will be here Wednesday so expect Action pics very soon.
