Default Crawler007 FJ40 build

Well Iíve had this truck for about 4yrs now and have never finished building it, that hasnít stopped me from running it though.

Iím tired of looking at the light tan color so I ordered some tamiya paints and got to work.



Added a dent or two



A little mustard and white.

And started a partial restoration (got the front fender in primer.

Found a decent windshield frame still need to paint match it.


Added some stripes that turned out to resemble an aloe mail jeep (just worked out that way)

Pulled the old number and and winch

Got some paint of them.



Will do some weathering once I get everything painted.

This is how the poor thing got so muddy. Before the paint work.

Man the weathering on this looks really terrific. I especially like the rust around the windows. Very cool.

It's really, really nice. It looks very realistic and with the real pictures I would definitely think there was a 1: 1
