    Default SBG Styrene Body Build Off 2016!



    We're really excited to announce the latest Build Off. This one is pretty wide open folks, so you can pretty much build whatever you like, as long as it meets the following criteria:


    • Must start with an existing styrene body that is commercially available (eBay, vintage, barn find, whatever).
    • Must use original body structure to a minimum of 50% - NO SCRATCH BUILDING.
    • All building materials must be Styrene or Komacel. No Lexan, Wood, Bubblegum, Glass, etc. Filler is allowed.
    • MUST be your OWN BUILD, pictures to verify.
    • Can use any chassis, axles, etc. No limits on chassis construction. Must be 4x4.
    • No scale constraints. Make a 1:1 if you want.
    • Must be a Supporting/VIP/Vendor level member.
    • Must be a working model. Video and photos required as proof.
    • Can be started as early as 1 month in advance of contest start date (which is Mar. 22, 2016).
    • Creativity and originality will be rewarded.
    • Each entry must have "STYRENE BUILD-OFF" in the thread's title. Please post your link in this thread.



    That's it! Super easy. Hoping to bring on some of our sponsors for some very cool prizes. Contest concludes six months from today to give you lots of time to build. September 30th is final day for submissions. Watch this thread for updates and further details. Also, ask your questions here.

    Good luck!

    So, the clod body that I'm working on would qualify for this. since its a "existing styrene body that is commercially available".? Thanks, may have to get in on this.

    I just FINISHED the D129 which would have met this criteria, but have nothing fresh I have started. The choice is WIDE open.

    I'm in on this for sure! Have the perfect body kicking around for it too :)

    I'll see if I can throw some stuff in the prize pool too, as a vendor.

    EDIT: do 3d-printed parts count? I'd be using Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) for anything printed after all haha. no biggie if not.
