Axial SCX10 Custom Honcho by Adam Hoover [READERS RIDE]

Adam’s truck has a certain gritty, home-brewed scale look to it that really appeals to us. It looks like the kind of real truck we would build in our garage at home. He custom-welded the eco-cage and rear section himself, and added a RC4WD Mojave cab which he custom-painted to give it a home-built beater [...]

Chevy 3500 Dually Toy Conversion by Karl Sandvik [Reader's Ride]

About the only thing that gives away the scale of Karl Sandvik’s Chevy 3500 Dually work truck is the size of the hex heads on the custom steel frame rails!
