EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – WHAT SIZE RIG DO YOU WEAR?

What’s going on Squid nation! I have been working on my scale off-road park that last few weeks trying to get it ready for Saturday’s summer opener. Made some new trails and rebuilt some old ones as well. But the new Axial Racing 1:24 Deadbolt got me thinking. Pros and cons of smaller scale and bigger scale rigs. 1:24: Now these little [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – RUST BUCKET

In the past I have tried a few different methods to try and create rust. Mixing cinnamon with brown paint and all kinds of do-it-yourself techniques. All of which ended in a complete disaster and left me feeling beaten. Then I saw my buddy Joe’s Traxxas Trx4 Bronco and the rust job he did using a 3-step rusting kit. I [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – CRAWLERS 4 KIDS

It’s a good feeling when you can help someone out, right? Well, it’s an even better feeling when you can use RC’s to help. Hearing stories of how the hobby has changed someone’s life for the better can almost put some saw dust in your eyes. From beating addictions, to the less fortunate, the stories are endless. So, when I [...]

RC4WD TOYOTA 4RUNNER BUILD SERIES – PART 1 With Video

What’s up Squid Nation! So currently I have been working on the RC4WD Trailfinder 2 Toyota 4Runner build. And I have to say this is starting to be one of my favorite builds. There is so much scale detail on the 4Runner body that it will definitely get you your scale fix. As for the chassis build, RC4WD did an [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – KITS AND RTR’s

Over the last few months I have been doing a lot of building. In turn I blame Big Squid RC for sending me to USTE lol. I know there are two types in the scale world, those who build and those who just want some scale right out of the box. Whatever one you are, they are both fine and [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – SHOP TALK

What’s going on everyone, thanks for checking out this weeks Everybody’s Scalin’. So there seems to be some mixed feelings on the new Axial Racing release. One side is excited for a new SCX10 II and the other side, not so much. I get it, we all have or favorite brands, categories, styles, so on and so on. But lately [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – RC4WD BIG EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT

I just love when RC companies do teasers of upcoming rigs or events. So when I started to see RC4WD teasing about something last week on their Instagram I was very intrigued. Having to wait those hand full of days is never easy. I am a very impatient person so once Wednesday arrived and RC4WD went live on their Facebook [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – RC4WD TOYOTA 4RUNNER BUILD GOODIES!

Unbelievable! In a good way. The great folks at RC4WD sent us some goodies including a Trailfinder 2 kit. I have a few builds going on already but once that RC4WD box showed up at the Big Squid office I knew everything else was going to be put on hold. I have been really looking forward to doing this RC4WD [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – INTERIORS

Well, I can honestly say I am in full build mode. In total I have about seven builds I want to have done by fall. Sounds like a lot, but in reality I have most of the stuff I need. There is more to a scale build then just painting a body or adding some scale items on to your [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – DODGE RAMCHARGER

For what seemed like years of searching I’ve finally got my hands on the Proline 1983 Dodge Ramcharger body! This would have never happened if it wasn’t for my buddy. He as about 3 Proline Ramcharger bodies, mainly because he is a huge fan of the old Dodges. And I think he finally got sick of me bugging him for [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – PIT BULL RC TIRES

I had the pleasure of meeting the President of Pit Bull Tires, Michael Green. And I can honestly say he is a really cool guy. We talked about tiny trucks and also some civil war history, which is one of my favorite historical subjects. He then sent me home with some awesome stuff that I couldn’t wait to check out. I [...]

EVERYBODY’S SCALIN’ – RC4WD BAYWATCH TRUCK

What’s up everybody, with USTE 19 only 7 days away I figured it would be a good time to reveal my latest build. I would actually call it more of a theme build and not a full-blown build. During those few days of brutal cold weather I found myself binge watching Baywatch. Now, back in its hay day Baywatch was [...]
