Default First post - Micro Crawler Course!

Hey everyone!

Like the title suggests this is my first ever post. I wanted to share a bit about me and my rigs and of course my micro course.

I have 4 SCX 24s. Deadbolt,JLU Jeep,Gladiator,Bronco. My first RC ever was a Slash 4x4 VXL. Also have 2 TRX4 kits, sport and trail.

I hand built this SCX 24 course. Itís light and durable and in two halves. Itís built on 2 sheets of 2 foot by 4 foot by 1/4 inch MDF as the base. Boxes and kitchen trash basically hot glued to those, foam on those and then plaster cloth and finally paint and shrubs and rocks.

Let me know what you think! Happy crawling!

This is cool. Reminds r of the old 'Mountains in Minutes' we used oh-so-many years ago, for making hills/mountains for HO & N scale trains.

Very awesome. We have been slowly working on something in the backyard (a little bigger but wont be near as amazingly detailed) but mother nature has nuked that for a while. Too much rain.

From the background of the room you also have one hell of a cool significant other!!! If not married damn well need to, don't let that one get away!!! No way my wife would let me build that inside the house!

@tigris99 she wasnít happy but she did let me build it, the stipulation was it had to be able to be stored somewhere. It fits nicely in the closet. Nice thing is I live in Oregon and when itís too nasty out to crawl with my 10th scales I can pull these out easy and put them anywhere!

Nice! Even "not happy" she still let you do it. And the fact you designed it to store easily makes it even more awesome!!!

I might get by with a small one in the basement since the the kids have 1/24s now as well, usually when it involves them she's all for it lol.

Thatís awesome, we have a 2 year old and trying for the next kid, rest assured I will see if the kids have interest in RCs. My wife is pretty cool, hobby creep is real.
