Truck of the Week: 5/20/2012 Axial SCX10

We’ve featured Mike Eaton’s work before–for good reason. His scale truck shown here is simply awesome. It’s an Axial SCX10 fitted with a Tamiya Clod Buster hard plastic body. Mike detailed the body to look like a GMC. The hood and tailgate are operational and Mike made the toolbox and sun visor himself. A Rogue Element Components drop bed adds added scale dimension.

  1. Awesome, that was my first full out scale build attempt (at least in my eyes). That was exciting to do and currently I am working on another similar build. Clod bodies are such a cool platform… the truck is iconic!

  2. That’s a very nice build. From a certified Chevy enthusiasts, I say you did that clod body builld justice and the sunken bed is a great touch. I have had my clod body for some years now, Been mounted to many builds. It is retired on my TLT build. Great platforms indeed. Nice job.

  3. i really like this build. i was just wondering how you mounted that drop bed on the chassis. im trying to make my own.good job on the body.

    1. That is a Tamiya Clod Buster body. It’s hard plastic, which means it is more like a plastic model material than typical Lexan used in RC. It also means it paints like a real body (paint on the outside) and can be fairly easily detailed and modified.
