Star Wars Stunners
SHERMAN OAKS, CA
Reader’s Ride of the Year winner, friend of the
magazine, and surprisingly tall British dude James
Knight built these three Star Wars–themed vehicle
for our February 2016 issue. They came out pretty
great, especially when you consider he had to
crank them out in about two weeks to make
deadline! James started out with an RC4WD Beast
6X6 (which became the Jawa Junk Hauler), a
Tamiya Mad Fighter (Imperial Patrol Buggy), and
Team Associated B4 RTR (Rebel Snow Runner).
Add a bunch of model-kit parts and assorted
greeblies, matte paint jobs, weathering, and a
lot of creativity, and presto: incredible customs
from a galaxy far, far away—or California, at least.
