Always wanted an SRB.
After looking around for quite a while, I kept changing my mind over what model I really wanted. I've always admired the Ranger and the Sand Scorcher and in the end decided I was probably going to buy a new 2010 re-re Scorcher. That's when I came across this beauty for sale. As a vintage chassis that's had some restoration and a vintage body shell with a paint job I could only ever dream of pulling off, it appealed straight away. Factor in the custom wheels and front tyres and I was sold on it. Turns out the seller was Rallyebaz and the wheels and tyres are the work of SRB Bloke. I'm a fan of box art finishes but I also appreciate a bit of a decent custom job like this which would take me forever to try and replicate. There's no electrics fitted at the moment so this will be a 'shelfer' for now but I plan to make it a runner at some point.

Thanks everyone! That's what I thought when I saw it. SRB Bloke - I'm reliably informed by RallyeBaz the wheels and tyres are your handy work - just amazing!

I'll probably be adding one or two more scale accessories to this bug - I'll post fresh pics when I do
