RC Scratch Built Completely Custom & Totally Tubular: Justin Hilton’s NSP-1

RC Scratch Built Completely Custom & Totally Tubular: Justin Hilton’s NSP-1

There’s a huge variety of kit and RTR models out there to match just about any full-size dream machine you’d ever want to wheel, but Justin Hilton couldn’t find the scaled-out, solid-axle trophy truck he was looking for—so he built his own! Justin’s scratch-built NSP-1 looks like a tube-frame truck because it really is a tube-frame truck. Or to be more precise, “rod frame”—those “tubes” are solid steel! That adds quite a bit of heft to the big rig, but Justin dialed in the suspension for the weight and installed heavy-duty Tekin power to carry the load.

The chassis is made of welded 3/16 rod and powder-coated for a much more durable finish than paint. Note the threaded mounting tabs for the body panels.

Justin is 19 and hails from Atlanta, where he’s an art student. The NSP-1 definitely qualifies as a cool kinetic sculpture in our book!
