White Rose Hobbies Axial SCX10 II RC Crawler Build Part 1

White Rose Hobbies will be building a RC Crawler to showcase products that we sell in the shop. We have chosen the Axial SCX10 II Platform for the base of this project because of its proven ability on the trails as well as the availability of upgrades and custom parts. Marsh RC will be helping us with this build. You can check out the build videos on the Marsh RC YouTube Channel.


We chose the kit version of the SCX10 II because of the flex-ability of adding our choice of electronics, and other components of the build. The RTR Axial SCX10 is a great way to get up and running instantly, and is just as customizable.

If you have never seen what a kit version of an RC car or truck looks like, it comes much like a plastic model car kit. Parts need to be cut off the sprues and assembled into a finished component.

The truck will feature a stout driveline that not only performs great but also fits into the Pro-Scale look that they are going for with this rig. Most notable is the solid rear axle with a spool for maximum toughness.

The George Washington famed name train is coming in HO Scale!

Walthers George Washington Cheasapeake and Ohio Name Train

White Rose Hobbies will be stocking the full complement of the WalthersProto Cheaspeake and Ohio's famed George Washington Passenger Train.

CLICK HERE to check out our pricing on this very limited edition collection. You can enter your email address on this page to be notified when all of these products are available.

For business or a relaxing getaway, there was no finer way to travel between Washington and Cincinnati, than the George Washington of the early 1960s. Known simply as the George to its many fans, the train’s unique personality was reflected in everything from hardworking heavyweights up front carrying mail and baggage, to impeccable service inside the rebuilt Dormitory-Diner. Travel back to a time when getting there really was half the fun aboard Walther's newest HO Scale name train, featuring seven cars and matching E8A diesels.

Flagship of the Chesapeake & Ohio, the George Washington was a favorite with folks traveling for business or pleasure between Washington, DC, and Cincinnati. Serving other key southern cities and famed resorts along its route, it was known simply as the George to its legions of fans. Designed for maximum comfort with unique interior features, riders enjoyed C&O’s unique streamlined Pullman-Standard coaches or cozy overnight accommodations aboard luxurious 10-6 sleepers. In later years, meal service was provided inside updated dormitory-diner cars, rebuilt especially for the train. Following the consolidation of B&O passenger services, George became the hardest working train in America, handling up to 16 cars (including repainted heavyweights carrying mail and baggage) and requiring a trio of E8A units on parts of its run. Blocks of cars were set out and picked up at major stations en route, with service extending as far west as St. Louis. C&O’s long-standing tradition of providing the finest service possible continues into Amtrak era, with much of its route now served by the Cardinal.

Befitting its flagship status, the George Washington was listed in public timetables as train number one (westbound) and two (eastbound). By the 1960s, it was actually several trains in one, setting out and picking up blocks of cars at key cities that then operated as separate trains continuing to Detroit, Louisville, Chicago and St. Louis.
