This one is built from a Scorcher kit and Buggy Champ body set. Seems to be the cheapest way to get one these days.
Painted a close approximation of Kawasaki green, but the bold colour reminds me of the beach tractors that used to tow boats in and out of the water where I used to holiday as a child in the '80s.
Sadly no hop-up parts on this save for a couple of leftover Fighting Buggy decals, because my RC budget has taken a hammering of late. No radio gear fitted as yet. I need to get a spare body and wheels etc first.

Thanks very much bjorklo, neobrunox and Grumpy pants. For the first time I did all the painting and stickering before even breaking open any of the blister packs. Did the final chassis build listening to 80s music. What a nostalgic blast it was!

Thanks Gents, glad you like it. I was a bit worried that it would look too agricultural, but I'm really pleased with it. AndyjcClod, yes I remeber those they were nasty......but lovely, like Fab ice lollies

Thanks again for your kind comments everyone. I never could have imagined green would be so popular. A 70s revival perhaps, I've noticed brown seems popular on 1:1 cars at the moment as well.
Tamiya TS22 for anyone liking the colour enough to use it.

Very nice paint job!

Just when you think you've seen everything posible with the Rough Rider, something fresh and amazing like this comes along! Kudos!
