Default Custom RC4WD Gelande FJ40 Land Cruiser

This thing is about 95% finished so I figured I would share it. I'm still waiting for bumperettes from Shapeways and rear fenders. I have shackles to mount over the front bumper screws, but I'm not sure if they would look right on this kit since it has the bumper hooks already.

A BIG thanks to pardonmynoob for producing the detailed floor and hubcaps (which I have yet to install)!

Glad to see you've been doing something productive. Nice work (and not just the outsourced stuff).

Thanks! I've got a few other projects nearing completion too so I may even have something else to share pretty soon.

The Land Cruiser now has rear fenders and bumperettes (Shapeways). I also added some wheel wideners to move the wheels and tires out 3mm. Finally got my hubcaps ready to install, with Shoe Goo I think - couldn't seem to drill a straight hole for the front lockers, so I had to order more.
