    I'm a fan of this chassis but that body looks all wrong to me but I can't put my finger on exactly why.

    The 1:1 version of the Pajero XL-W is only a 2.35m wheelbase so at 10th scale on a 313mm WB chassis everything is proportionally off and bigger.

     

    Now I know most 10th scale crawlers are not true tenth scale but the difference is usually nominal. In this case the difference is huge.

    I'm with you though,  it just doesn't sit right to me.

    The wheels and tyres look lost under that body.

     

    I know there was demand for more 313mm options crom Carisma but I reckon they could have come up with a better body personally.

     

    This is all just my 2 pennies worth though anday mean nothing to others.

    @stupar makes sense as the proportions are definitely bugging me especially the way it looks in the second pic.

    Isn't there a 4 door version of this Pajero, maybe that would have been better? The last two photos in the water look much nicer, I think the studio wash out the panel lines down the side.

    There probably is.

    Something like that or a 4 door Nissan Patrol would have worked better on that WB TBH.

    I like it. Would have preferred a four door patrol as well but loops model already sells those. I think its a lot better than another jeep/defender, afaik theres only the tamiya pajero and maybe loops has one too. Points for trying to be original, but the scale dimensions need to be thought about more as mentioned above

    I think it's missing a little panel height between the top of the wheel arch and the bonnet line?

    It looks slightly 'SJ 410' ?

    I'm liking it a lot. 

    I think maybe we've got used to a lot of releases having slightly oversized tyres for the proportions - more like the type that would go with a lift kit on a 1:1

    As mentioned above its nice to not have yet another defender/jeep

    I seem to recall the Mitsubishi Shogun having independent front suspension and not a axle??

     

    also first impressions, it looks like a old merc g-wagon

     

    but credit where it’s due, it’s always nice to see different shells being released.

     

    next we need a mk1 4 door, Nissan patrol, suited to a 324mm wheelbase or a Land Rover 101 army ambulance again at 324mm as there’s not much choice at this wheelbase….

    I think arch liners would do it, stop the hollow effect along the sides.

    Just come back to catch up on what been said and I have found a plus point on this, yes it’s true…..

     

    isn’t it nice to see a rig with the wheels and tyres tucked neatly away in the arches? Some of the stuff out there could almost be a open wheel class, so yeah happy to see something a “bit” more road orientated truck in stock form.

     

    at least they are trying out new stuff, kudos to them for that :good:

    Did you see the header pic?

    There's about 1/4 outside the arches

    Mmm, looks like the wheels are well tucked in the action shots, still not too bad though….

    Bored and at lunch - looked up how to pronounce Pajero

    Started clicking various links, Exploroz being one, which suggested a translation check might be in order 😆

    Might be why the UK went with 'Shogun' for so long
