To help celebrate 15 years of R/C adventure, Axial has released a limited edition version of its popular SCX24, throwing back to one of its earliest 1/10-scale models. The SCX24 B-17 Betty features the rugged throwback styling of a military truck blended with the impressive performance of the SCX24 platform.
This model doesn’t veer off its set path when it comes to overall chassis setup and internal components. Like the other SCX24 models before it, the SCX24 B-17 Betty features a ladder-frame chassis design, four-link suspension, coil-over shocks, and a brushed motor (88T) to offer impressive performance in a small package.
When it comes to appearance, this version of the SCX24 certainly stands apart from the rest. Featuring the body of a mid-40s pickup truck and a gray and green paint scheme, this truck will stand out in a crowd. Along with the special edition paint, the B-17 Betty also sports black Rockster wheels with beadlock ring trim, Rock Lizard tires, and Axial 15th Anniversary decals.
A select number of these models will be released, and you’ll find the production number marked on the chassis rail. Along with this commemorative stamping, a commemorative coin is included to help you distinguish this model apart from others in your collection.
