I like a hybrid, but....

Looks like somone has put a lot of time and effort into making such a mess.
For posterity - An XR311 chassis that has been fitted with a Rough Rider body and rear wheels, along with other "modifications".

Spotted this mk.2 Scorcher (surely the most common of all the SRBs) up at a fixed/Buy It Now price of 300 GBP (plus 15 GBP domestic postage) on eBay ... at that price I debated whether to post it in the "How much?!" thread, but in the end I thought that didn't quite capture the incompleteness of the chassis and body (and the ineptitude of the "repairs" done to it) - or the apparantly completely deluded thoughts of the seller...



Highlight of the pics, + the listing title, condition descriptor + text, for posterity:

Judging by some of the words used to describe it, I would hazard a guess and say he is a "PICKER" People who go to Peoples houses and look through attics and sheds for "PIECES" they can make a profit off..... There is a few TV shows about this "American Pickers" Was the first ;)
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem mate :)

Correction, it's someone's lunchbox - just not a Tamiya one ;)

It's not a Lunchbox - it's some sort of medical supplies box. I recognise it as my Dad used to have hundreds of them for storing bits and pieces in. He used to bring them home from work - he was a vet (veterinary surgeon)
