O and I like how you added the black on the front of the rear fender flares

Well I dont do things by Half!

Will think about doing the roll bar if and when the top gets ruined which it probably will!

Then it will no doubt end up looking a bit like 'colquitts tma'.

I wanted it to be Right Hand drive with uk plates but his right arm doesn't bend enough to grab the steering wheel.

When I tried him on the Left his left arm holds the steering wheel and his right is on the gear stick. Job done so States Plates it is.
And i will finish the interior when i get off the Tinternet.

Nice looking 4runner, started one similar to this a couple years back. Wish I would have finished it now. The graphics add the extra little bit of scale realism, keep it up

No worries on the stripping stuff, I went down to good old halfrauds and got mountains of the stuff for under a fiver out of there bargain bin.
Got enough left over to re stripe the kids too!

More Finishing Touches,

First Aid kit for that Rock rash!



Gonna need a Powertank Very pleased how this turned out.


Overview




Have got to change the toerag spare wheel for something a little more in keeping with the rest of the ride and also make some more of my Tie down straps.

Other than that the roofracks finished thats another job off the list.

Bumpers and sliders next got to get some gas now.

That thing is shaping up to be a Kick @$$ rig man and if you keep going you might just have a better Hilux/Bruiser than 1Badjeepbruiser's Chino Clone!!! ;)

It's not hard practise makes perfect

Been busy today trying to knock up the sliders and front bumper.
Bought some Brass and soldered them up.
They all need tidying and shaping on the ends of the sliders and painting but i think they looks pretty mean.
Got room to make a winch up front as well.
Comments/sudgestions welcome as usual

Very cool build. I normally look at the scale trucks with a lot of scale items and say "Too much" but this truck with the items is amazing. I'm not very good using my hands too workwith such small things[came out sounding a bit wrong]. This has too be one of my favorite builds around, being I liked the 4 runners and yotas in general.

Got the Tubework cleaned up and painted just got one more slider to fit and also make a rear bumper.

Also made a Dummy winch for the front.

What is the best stuff to use for a wire for it?
And also a Hook?
