    That looks pretty cool although I’ve not heard much about Gmade trucks – there’s the Sawback I’ve seen before, but not actually heard from anyone that has one. To the point I’ve seen more people that have gone to great trouble converting the large scale toy Jeeps to radio control rather than just getting a Sawback (like yourself, didn’t you do a red one I seem to remember?)

    A couple of people at the Northants club run Gmade trucks, a Komodo and a Sawback, they’re not the most capable trucks out of the box but they look pretty cool.

    On first impressions they seem to have gone the opposite way with this one, looks as though it’s going to be very capable but it’s not a looker is it.

    I did indeed convert a Hasbro Jeep, but it’s rather large at 1/6 scale.

    I quite like the looks to be honest! Like a late 70’s/early 80’s converted Ford – at least I think it’s nicer than a lot of the unlicensed lexan bodies out there at the moment.

    I still have a soft spot for Axial though for some reason, I’d have an SCX10 II in a heartbeat over a lot of what’s out there, I reckon this will be similarly priced.

    Well the world would be a boring place if we all liked the same things hehe!  I’m interested to see how the tyres and the axles perform, the steering looks like it’s going to be good out of the box.
