PROJECT BUILD: Losi Baja Rey

PROJECT BUILD: Losi Baja Rey

Tamiya’s Original Trail Rigs – Old-School Scale

by Kevin Hetmanski If you use the term “scale truck,” most people will automatically think about vehicles like the Traxxas TRX-4, Axial SCX10, or Vaterra Ascender.

How to Paint a Hard Body

How to Paint a Hard Body

When building the ultimate scale rig, there’s nothing that compares to an injection-molded body.
