Vaterra Twin Hammers Trail Truck  [READER’S RIDE]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Trail Truck [READER’S RIDE]

Custom SWB Vaterra Twin Hammers by Ronald Martin [Reader’s Ride]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Scuderia Special by Karel de Koning [Readers Ride]

Vaterra Twin Hammers Scuderia Special by Karel de Koning [Readers Ride]

Karel de Koning, of Oud-Beijerland, Netherlands, picked an unusual theme for his Vaterra Twin Hammers Rock Racer, but his attention to detail on the subtle but extensive custom work makes it an impressive achievement.
