Where the hell can I buy one of these? They look sweet! I'd imagine these guys build these things since I can't seem to find them to buy anywhere. Are these guys engineers or what?

really cool.. I have a Tamiya CC02 chassis and a pickup cab body trimmed and painted, but never finished it off. Fun stuff indeed.

They should make a body out of heavy aluminum foil and the chassis out of 30g a sheet metal so they could dent up and rust away just like the real things!

Check this out, 30 year tech but very cool!

I've got two. One is a D90 on an Axial chassis (better than Gelšnde), and a 110 on a stretched Gelšnde 90 chassis.

The Gelšnde 90 is usually always in stock. It's the 110 and 110 body that is only produced every few years. I ended up using two 90 bodies to build my 110.

The Gelšnde chassis is good for the stock look, but the Axial chassis is better suited for wheeling. The Gelšnde also has a VERY loud drivetrain which can be annoying.

Then there are loads of spares to add to the cost of these little fun things.

Then you have a lot more time than I do for these fun toys... enjoy!
