Painting a HPI Land Rover Defender Lexan shell for our Axial SCX10 1280 x 720 HD
Link : http://www.atomicmods.com/Categories/Crawlers/1-10-Axial-SCX10.aspx I wanted to do a tutorial on painting a lexan body, so why not paint a new one up for our Axial SCX10. We are now stocking a good selection of 1/10 scale bodies for the SCX10.

Responses to Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do you have a video of/about _______?
A: Check by visiting my main channel page; hit the channel-specific search
box and enter a relevant keyword (fewer the better)
Q: How much does [a product] cost, or where can I buy it?
A: Hit up Google.com -- search for the product by name, then click the
Shopping results link to quickly & easily see the current price range. RC
items can be purchased from RC hobby shops, online RC shops like Tower
Hobbies, A-Main Hobbies, etc., or from eBay sellers.
Q: Why did you buy a brushed version of an RC to review, when there's a
brushless version available?
A: Many more people can afford to buy the brushed version -- not every
buyer has an unlimited budget. Also, brushed RCs can be VERY enjoyable to
own & run, even though they don't go 300mph.
Q: Why don't you review more nitro vehicles?
A: There are ***very*** few places in my highly-populated region where I
can legally operate a nitro RC. Also, I don't personally like the noise &
grime much (I have owned/run a number of nitro RCs).
Q: Why don't you test more high-end maximum-expense race vehicles?
A: I'm no longer a racer, and most viewers are not racers. I really enjoy
multi-purpose vehicles that can be driven places other than a track. Plus,
*proper* testing of a race vehicle *requires* a long, arduous, expensive
process involving extensive tuning and direct apples-to-apples driving
comparison against the leading competitor or two under identical
Q: How do you get your money to buy RC stuff?
A: By working. Hard. Really hard.
Q: I personally don't like what this video was about. Why did you post it?
A: Wait, why did you watch the video, when the title clearly says what it's
Q: Is URC dead?
A: Silliest question of all time, hands down. Visit

STYRENE BASICS: RC4WD "Kahn" Defender D90 Custom Build
I've started something new to me: styrene building! Using styrene sheets
rods, pipes and scraps I'm creating my own ultimate version of the Land
Rover Defender, the Kahn designed beefed up version of the original. Larger
fenders, a bulkier hood, and tons of custom touches will be scaled down to
try making my model look like the 4x4 beast that the Kahn is. In this
episode I show you my start, and I hope to take away any insecurity that
people might feel when trying new aspects of the hobby. There is a ton of
stuff to learn in RC, and styrene building is a nice new element for me to
enjoy the hobby even more than I already am.
A few months ago, I did my first attempt at painting up a hard body RC,
with the Toyota HiLux body that came with my RC4WD TrailFinder II. It was a
nice way for me to experiment with painting such a shell, but I didn't
quite feel like I used the shell to its full potential. After reading up on
several forums about true scaling, I have developed an interest for styrene
building. Some members on these forums use styrene to build their bodies
from scratch! I'm not going to start out too ambitious, but I do feel that
with the Land Rover Defender D90 body, I have a great base to make my own
alterations, using styrene and filler to get the shell looking the way I
want before paint.
Here are some of the main forums that I visit to get inspired for my scale
build. Don't hesitate to join and ask questions, the people on these forums
are very friendly and helpful, regardless of the skill level you possess.
I'm also using a variety of brand in accessories to get my Defender as
scale looking as possible. TGN Distributing is the place where I shop for
my needs, both crawler related and for my large scale RC supplies. The
range of scale products is getting broader by the day, and TGN Distributing
carries some amazing brands. Not just RC4WD, but also a new brand called
Arches RC. Check out the link below to see what sort of product TGN carries
for your ride:
This build will take time, so in between I will focus on my usual paintwork
as well, on lexan bodies. I think it's nice to have a "longer" project on
my hands, and look forward to slowly but surely getting and making parts
for my ride during winter. If you are curious about the build, the result,
the missteps along the way (I'm sure there will be plenty), make sure to

comments, don't hesitate to put them in the box below, and I'll try to
reply to you as soon as I can.
