    Default D90V?

    So one day as I was trolling ďodd vehiclesĒ on the internet, I came across a disturbing image. I couldnít tell if it was real or not (photoshop is a thing now) so I looked deeper. No luck.

    Here is what I found...


    So me being me, I wanted one. The only way to do that is build it. I searched the archives and did not find one built to my surprise ( I could be wrong and Iím sure someone will correct me if Iím wrong).

    Off to collecting and figuring things out...


    A few nips and a few measurements and I had a plan (which failed at first contact) and then revised the plan and...


    Far from ready to join back together but a little mockup never hurt...


    Well, itís off to the races and lots more to go if I want this to be a runner for U.S.T.E. In Feb. and since there is a trailer run, I think I have that covered too...

    Thanks for looking and any of the hard body guruís feel free to chime in with tips and tricks. Iíll need it for the D90CF-T (cab forward) pickup thatís coming next!

    That looks awesome!! Makes me want to try something bit different!! I'm no expert an I have never cut a body!! But could you use trailer windows to form middle windows! That way could keep molding line at bottom of windows nearer to front of truck!!

    Super funky but yeah is a photoshop, if it was real it would be even more cramped than a normal defender lol! Ok if you had nothing bellow the knees, but regardless cool concept and cool base to build an r/c of ����

    Although the picture in the first post is a Photoshop as Hairyguy4 says, it would be feasible to build something like that on the 101 FC (Forward Control) chassis using a mix of Defender body panels... much as you're doing here in 1/10th scale of course!

    Looking forward to seeing how this turns out - you might even prompt someone to build a full size version after all!

    Thanks for all the positive feedback thus far.

    A little more done today to start firming it back up so I can work with it easier.

    Window openings roughed in and reinforcements to the inside. (The roof rack is temporary of course, just for looking at it)
