    Default Looking for 1/10sh scale cab only

    Are there any scale truck cabs similar to the M35A2 available? Something like this Cross RC but just a cab and maybe a bed...and a lot cheaper.

    http://www.cross-rc.com/

    I'm wanting to build a scale looking RC crawler but more capable than the real counterpart. I've got a running chassis and will make the wheelbase suit the truck. US, Russian, British, Swedish, doesn't really matter at this point because I've looked all over the internet and must be searching the wrong keywords or they don't exist.

    I'm not that good at building custom work like that. Plus if I ever did I wouldn't want to wreck it.

    There's a few Unimog bodies out there in lexan and hard bodies. I've seen a few 1/10 3D printed bodies on fleaBay and Shapeways but they're costly and heavy.

    Have you tried contacting the eBay seller of that model to see if you could purchase just a body? Looks like he's a dealer that sells a lot of parts so he might have a uncompleted body kit.

    I got in trouble for the live auction link I used as a reference and replaced it with the Cross website.

    I haven't directly contacted anyone. I found some of the Cross bodies at a Euro vendor and they were pricey then the shipping was, too.

    They're pretty cool looking (I especially like the MAN style 6x6) but you've got to really want one to spend that kind of money.
