The RC4WD Trail Finder 2 has been a great Model for my build series. Im doing my best to Mimic the UK’s version of the Top Gear Hilux Truck.. and Wow.. Im simply STOKED! Im leaving everything on the chassis STOCK. I have only modified the Plastic Pieces of the BODY to make it look beaten up, aged, and making it look as though its been through HELL AND BACK! In this video I show how I detail some of my rust areas.. and continue to make the truck as realistic looking as possible. This tutorial series is a longer format – showing where BUILDING AN RC can be full of creative style, imagination and best of all.. FUN!

My Friends, I came across a GREAT Video by “TheDarkDragonWing” team on YOUTUBE!
I have been working with the Savage Flux myself lately.. and after seeing another Cool video from this team, I wanted to do something to promote their creativity. The Front Page of RCSparks is what I could come up with! “Manny and Mackey” are young video producers who have been working very hard, and you can tell in their videos quality and ENERGY! Each video by these guys has been Fun, and Energetic.. really promoting the Exciting part of the hobby! Their channel was Started in 2009
Great Job Guys!
I have never attempted a paint tutorial in this DEPTH before, and I have been asked several times to produce this type of video. While working on the RC4WD Trail Finder 2, I figured this was a perfect opportunity to sit and attempt it for all the RC Hobbyests that need some help or direction in painting their RC Hard Shell moulds! Some of these techniques are usable with lexan bodies and others as well!
In this video I start to assemble the electronics of my RC4WD Trail Finder 2 Trail Truck. This ULTRA Realistic rig is a real treat to work on, and to show off to the Radio Control Enthusiasts here on RCSPARKS!
