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 [...]

Traxxas/Axial Hybrid Scout 80 by Scott Lempert [Reader's Ride]

We could probably do an entire column just on Scott Lempert’s scale projects, so prolific is he with off-season building. One in particular that caught our eye was this ’63 International Scout 80—not just for the styrene body which Scott crafted himself, but for the unusual mix of components. The backbone is a set of [...]

SCX10-based Croc Hunter Land Cruiser [Reader's Ride]

Wesley Steinke’s truck started off as an Axial SCX10 Honcho, but with a donor body from a Crocodile Hunter toy truck, it’s now a beautifully detailed Toyota Land Cruiser 70 UTE complete with a reworked drivetrain to accommodate the body’s shorter wheelbase. The upper and lower links and MIP driveshafts were cut down, re-centered and [...]
