Further Description/Back Story I had an Injora Cherokee in the shop, I took off an older build. Bored one day, I decided to cut off the rear roof and make in a “Comanche”. Soon after, I decided against that, and cut the full rear off, and cut Lexan to finish off the cab. Then I decided to pinch the body. None of this was planned. Soon I had a semi complete body, with no paint and no chassis. So, I grabbed all the Tamiya paint I had, and started layering, knowing I’d sand and weather the paint to reveal the colors underneath. Once the body was done, I 3D printed some badges and began to work on a chassis. I settled on an Axial builders kit and an IERC Merge chassis. This was it, my vision was coming together. From boredom to a vision. I dropped a Hobbywing Fusion, NSDRC RS1, and a FlySky receiver in it. Then installed HotRacing 12mm hex extensions, Injora 2.2 wagon wheels, Proline Hyrax in 1.9 with their Dual Stage foams. A flatbed and front bumper from IERC finished off the look I was going for. The end result I describe as a shop truck, comp truck, not so scale crawler. It’s a performer and looks good doing it. The interior was built after the entire truck was built. I needed to know what sort of clearance I would have and where I needed to set my dash and driver. All the parts were 3D printed and created from scratch. Designed in house and fit perfectly. A lot of time went into creating this rig and it’s never going to be finished. I will always find ways to change and improve this one just as I do with all my others. But, this is it in, let’s call it phase 1. I’ve also decide to name it Bobba Fet. I think the color in the body, distressed look and attitude deserve the namesake.
