Holy Scale Defenders!

Okay, its a twelve page long thread, but there is honestly something cool to see on every page. It may take some time, but I encourage you to scan through all twelve pages. Don't forget the movie of it rock crawling on page eight!

All I can say is WOW! Some people have a hell of alot more skill (and time) than I, that's for sure. You don't have to register on the site to search it either. If you search 'defender' there are lots of cool builds as well. (I found it through a link to a scale Miata build that's nuts!)

Check It Out!!!

Here are a couple of pictures from the thread to wet your appetite..

Another Amazing Build..

I would fill the gear box with 90 wt, drill a small hole so it will drip onto the floor slowly like a real rover.


Wish they sold that as an official LR product with real LR paint codes!

that is a great link! I have a 1/10th Tamiya Pajero which I use to play with my Australian Shepherds. I also have some 1/16 scale tanks which really freaks the dogs out.

How early is too early to buy an RC Land Rover to your kids?
I was thinking about building something like this for them http://www.toylander.com/ but I wonder if I would not have more fun with an RC Defender.....

My son started with serious RC's when he was 12. The quality RC's that are rebuildable are the way to go, hobby shops have good selectionas. Associated and Tamiya are two brands I can remember. The Radio Shack versions are all throw a ways so stay away from these.

The good RC's can be modified with more powerful motors, have adjustable suspensions, rebuildable shocks, tires ti suit the terrain, new body kits etc. etc. Have fun!

I have a Traxxas T Maxx truck with a $30 HPI body that is a D90. Not as detailed as the ebay body with the interior etc but hey the truck moves around the yard at 30+ MPH so that's cool. Easy to work on and deal with, it is gas so probably not a great fit for little kids, but there are eletric versions at the hobby store.

Any pictures? Roughly, how much would that setup be off-the-shelf? I'm not into RC much, but is there an "used RC model for sale" place? eBay?

I have the same one sitting in my attic. It has a bunch of aftermarket stuff. A couple hundred bucks would take it. Then you just put the body of choice on it.
