Introduction of an old school nOOb. Checking in from Maine

Recommended Posts

Long overdue on this one as I lurked for a long time and then finally signed up recently...

I’m a Rover/Jeep/’Cruiser guy and a scaler guy. Just recently started actually realizing my Vintage-Lust :)

Owned a ton of both and always wheeled them…from comp level crawling to day trips and week long treks with zero pavement.

I’ve also done the RC thing for years and years, but now it’s getting crazy…I have a WONDERFUL wife, two great kids, 2 dogs and I weld Black Hawk parts for GE Avaiation. I used to be part owner of a pretty big regional mountain bike company (I guess technically I still am 1/2 owner :D)

Some of my past 1:1's

110 Hi-Cap.

The Camel Trophy Disco I I'm in the midst of (whilst scouring ebay for parts for my newly aquired Bigwig :) :)

Getting a bit better as I move on. The thing I always wrestle with now is realism versus how I want to drive them. I always drive them and really have fun thinking back on the 1:1 wheeling days before kids :) It's not that a true scaler can't hang...you can obviously build them so they can...it's the damage I inflict :evil:

Great collection of rigs and 1:1's! Especially the Landys! That Camel Trophy Disco is coming along well, I knew I reconised it from RCCrawler!

Is that all scratch built? (Camel Trophy Disco) I wussed out and just bought a New Bright Landy Disco and poached the body.

The Camel Disco is a Kamtec shell, it's definatly come along way!

Here's the RCCrawler build thread-

I hope, tozrovr, you don't mind me posting this?

Don't mind at all!

Yep, it's a Kamtec shell (as is the Defender 110 Pickup) made of 2mm ABS. Harder to work with but it's able to be detailed better than lexan. It's like a slightly flexible hard body...takes a beating but looks 100x better than lexan.
