Default Starwood Motors Nomad XL inspired build

I have been a fan of Starwood Motors for some time and always liked the Nomad XL. They have since rebuilt it and I wanted to build something that resembles it. Not going for an exact replica but just like the ideas used in creating it. Here is my starting point pictures using a New Bright body. I have had these sitting for a while and decided it is time to build. Been away from the scene for a little bit but I shall be diving back in.

Nice execution on the body mod. That roll cage came out perfect...looks spot on!

Now all you need is some over-sized deep dish rims and some Boggers, to finish the look.

I have a Starwood Motors project going also...the Night Hawk.

Not alot of these Starwood vehicles get built.

Thanks for the comments, still have some pieces to add and get it all welded up. It will be a little different from the original but hey not looking to make an exact replica.

I have some wheels and tires for it, just using the 2.2's that you see in the pic with some older Mudslingers from RC4WD. I will definetly check out your build👍

Looks really clean Altered. You are working on two Jeeps at a time where as I haven't even started mine due to one slow build keeping me from it haha. Look forward to your updates

It's well overdue for an update on this build, been working 7 days a week for the past month so I havent really had much time to work on this. So i decided to do some body panels like the full size version. Just playing around with ideas so let me know what you think i should do. Thanks for looking.....

Slowly but surely I've been working on this project thanks to Motorworxracing for the sweet looking wheels. I have another project in mind that could use another set of these....but not until this one is complete.

Also picked up some Boom Racing wideners from my LHS, the wheels seemed to be too tucked under the wheel wells and really wanted to widen the stance. Nothing too crazy, just added around 8mm to each side.

Hopefully I can get the cage all welded up soon so I can start getting the body into primer. Comments always welcome.

Awesome Altered. Looks just like the Starwood motors proportions now... That's a pretty challenging thing when working with scale projects

Thanks bro. When I build it's not too much to keep it as scale as possible. It's just to create builds that I would like in real life but wouldn't build it because it isn't practical on such a small island. There are some crazy builds out there but I don't see the use for them in life other than bragging rights. But it is an artform and I am and always will be a fan of the creativity and vision of some of these builders.

Tacked up the cage today, one of the straight bars are a little crooked but that will be an easy fix....forward progression.....lol.
