I am starting a JK build so I would like to see all jk's together. Like the bronco builds. It would be easier to get idea's. Thank you.

I would like to see a tuber section, no full bodies. I know that most of them are not scale but most have full or partial interiors and great component consealment ideas.

Thanks

This is to help people find scale R/C builds on RCC, not 1:1's.

What about one for Paris/Dakar or trials trucks? Could be called "6+ wheel'd Scalers" or "6x6 and 8x8 Scalers".

1:1 is an awesome way to get inspired for a scale rig though.

I want to build a scale tj to look how my 1:1 tj would look if I didn't have to drive it 60 miles a day. It wolud be helpful if all the tj builds were in one place.

I searched for a multi-axle thread for 6x6's and 8x8's, but haven't found anything.....though I admit my searching abilities lately has been lacking for some reason.

Anyway, I made a thread for multi-axle scale crawlers right here.
