It's real. I'm not sure if fine, powdery beach sand can be done in small scale.

Real B) . No tire marks where the tires would cross the sand, but the head rests look really 3d. -kevin

I'm going with model. It just looks too clean to be real.

I'm going with model. But very well done! If real, the fear of screwing up the paint would be too great to drive it!

If it's really on beach sand, somebody sure cleaned the heck out of those tires just for the shot. However, manipulating the background is fair game here, so it could go either way.

I'll go real due to the detail.

If you mean the Baja 5B, this would have to be a full out upgraded one. :unsure: I've never seen an RC like this, everything about it to me says real. :D

I'm saying model; it may be a red herring but I can't see any lug nuts on the wheels.

Stu, it could be a spindle mount and pin drive system. If this thing is real that the person or people who created it are very talented and that kind of system would be a cakewalk. Of course, if it's a model, all bets are off!



Definately a fishy picture though. Clean tires, the sand has no tracks, though they could have cleaned them up for the pic, or Harry could have cleaned them. Yup, I'm definately, almost positively, sorta, kinda, maybe, possibly, going with, ummmmmmmmm, real.........maybe.

That did cross my mind, but on balance I thought spindle mount wheels on a dune buggy seemed odd. Then again, I have no interest in dune buggies, so what do I know? :)
