    I joined this forum a couple years ago, and I put most of my builds in the Rock Crawler section, although I would say that they are not rock crawlers, but more like Scale trail truck.

    Some are built from using clod buster bodies and some are completely scratch built from sheets of styrene. I try to build trucks that I see where I live here in Illinois

    Any thoughts or questions I will try to answer them after work this evening.

    As time allows I am going to put all my trucks in this one thread.

    this is my Yota, (the only one I have) it has an Axial SCX10 Chassis and Tamiya Highlift axles and 3-spd trans





    K5 Blazer. Its a shortened Tamiya Highlift, with a modified clod buster body





    1968 Ford Crew Cab





    1975 Chevy pickup





    1979 Chevy LUV Mikado





    1980's Chevy Van, It started life as a clod buster body





    Time to go to work. I'll get more pics put up here tonight.

    Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

    Thank you very very much

    I made a few,( the Chevy LUV, 64 Chevy, 64 Dodge, 77 Dodge, 68 Ford,using sheets of styrene, a No. 11 Xacto knife blade, and lots of styrene cement, such as Ambroid Pro Weld, etc......PVC pipe cleaning solvent works really good also.

    The rest are Tamiya bodies that have been modified a small amount
