Press Release From JConcepts:
During the late 60’s and early 70’s, the major vehicle manufacturers determined it was time for trucks to stop looking so “trucky.” One of the leaders in this movement was Chevrolet. It was not an easy task but now owners could be proud of their purchase and snappy looks and display it in the driveway. Trucks were functional, but now, they were also great looking on the exterior and a little fluffier in the interior to provide more comfort during chores, commuting and even hard work.
On the RC side of things, JConcepts has a passion for pick-ups and the 70’s models who shaped the off-road and tough working truck community. The popularity of the 1/24th scale crawler trucks sent JConcepts to the trenches in search of the ultimate line of iconic trucks to compliment a range of vehicles. The 1970 shell is powerful, and the square body shape is a shout-out to simpler times when a hard day’s work was a bedful of goodness.
For the 1970, a lot of the glamour rested in the front grille and headlight package as well as the layered and sculpted rear tail gate and taillight section. These details are found on the included decal sheet along with many emblems and trim packages to complete your body in several popular looks from that generation. A chiseled front-end is gently swept back from the center. Fenders wells are round with raised edging making them ideal for several different 1/24th scale tires on the market.
The hood on the Chevy is rock solid in shape that planes across the center ridgeline. The cab and windshield are a key styling point on this creation and the “cap” look to the cab has the hard edge around the sides and visor like appearance to the front. Side windows fit within the geometry as expected with classic vent windows lining the front corner. The bed styling features the bodylines that make the Chevy authentic vintage and a slight recess in back provides a healthy setting for body mounts or other aftermarket accessories.
A small front bumper is molded into the design giving the truck solid looks without bolt-on parts or additional pieces. Side-markers on the 1970 are horizontal which is also included in the decal sheet. The wheel wells are large and tasteful 1:1 representation for the most clearance or maximum articulation with large tires, it might be necessary to trim further into the fender flares for extra-large tire sizes.
The years 1967-1972 showed a lot of looks through Chevrolet and GMC variants. With small changes to grille, headlights, and trim packages throughout the years, JConcepts has added a bonus to the included decal sheet. An incredible 4 different grille options are included on the sheet giving the user the option of their favorite package from yesteryear. Hard panned single headlight and double light bezel setups are included which contain bar and tube grille combinations. In addition, a plethora of badges are offered on the sheet featuring Cheyenne, Custom, C/10, C/20, and CST/10 combinations.
70’s fans, let us appreciate. JConcepts has the body for you.
For the ninth generation, the body-shell of the 1993 Ford F-Series was given another major upgrade. To further improve its aerodynamics, the forward bodywork was given a slightly lower hood line, rounding the front fenders and grille. The “Blue Oval,” a trademark of all Ford pickups, makes a striking appearance centered in the grille. Stout fender flares are carved ever so carefully into the panels while openings allow for a vast assortment of tires on the market. The F-150 single-cab look is strong and is a careful reminder of a time when passengers sat side-by-side during a typical outing.
JConcepts has now made available the Ford body shell to enthusiasts with the Axial SCX24. The hard bodyline positioned front to back give the truck heart and the “Built Ford Tough” personality. The lowered section of the bed allows for body mount positioning or an assortment of scale aftermarket accessories. A small front bumper is built into the body which can either be tucked behind the single tube bumper found on the Axial or simply positioned without stock items for more street truck appeal. The body comes clear and includes an authentic decal sheet and easy to use window mask for the detailed hobbyist.
It goes without saying that a tough exterior is mandatory in the scale off-road world. A lot of criteria are built into a project these days and with endless platforms to choose from, it is imperative to have a body shell that is tough, high-clearance and drops on the Axial SCX24 vehicle. The Creep by JConcepts is the latest in tough and dependable designs suited to high articulation vehicles in the scale community.
The Creep began a hard life working the local farms, occasional fair and eventually into the mud pits. Pulling the Creep from the hard work of a farm truck was not easy, however, JConcepts has dropped the cloth on a new crawling legend. Starting with a crisp front-end, the narrow truck has a skeleton like grille and beady eyes that have an angular V shape structure setting up the hood line and front-end clip. The long nose dead-ends into the V-shaped windshield which transitions into a large single cab providing that all-important vintage feel.
It was important for this body shell to have a bed area that allowed ample mounting space for different chassis combinations but also space a user can experiment with their own accessories. Behind the rear cab bracing, a bed area rests with hard rails up top for strength and security. A dove-tailed rear end gives clearance and a rather experimental aggressive look to the rear panel. The front and rear are equipped with a flange style, sheet metal appearing, wheel well housings which gives the Creep its military fit and finish.
Each package includes window mask, JCI Creep decal sheet and clear polycarbonate body. The product is always backed by JConcepts customer service, supported, and developed by professionals with style and authenticity.
