I was wondering how many modelers have an off road or 4x4 build floating around their want to do list.
so if it was or is an available kit or kits what would you like to build ?
it could be a rock crawler ,desert racer,baja bug,dune buggy,dakar motorcycles,dirt bikes, quads,a horse,brush fire truck,border patrol,military hummers,rally car,snow mobile.
let us know what you have in mind that you would like to put on your shelf.
or show what you have built so others can be inspired.

I have one in mind, but of course, it's not going to be a regular off road vehicle, it's going to be a Post Apocalyptic machine!

could you please elaborate? the idea is to get ideas out there just to see how many others want to build off road stuff.

I have a couple on the slow build bench at the moment , first is a 4wd mini that I'd like to do full size one day , it's going on a Suzuki Jimny chassis . Early days for this one so far ....

and a mini monster truck , the truck chassis/running gear is the USA1 kit while the mini body has been stretched into a ute/pickup with a toy Ford pickup bed that's been narrowed by 1/2" or so . Still a lot of shaping and sanding etc to go yet but I'm having fun :)

I know it drives on dirt but I am thinking off road in the classic sense,so this would be the exception that proves the rule.

This is an off-road machine that I built last year. It is a kit bash of the DG Productions bucket truck body and the Moebus Lost in Space Chariot. This is used by line crews in rough and swampy or snowy terrain. In the future I would like to convert a chariot into a SnoCat.

Hahahahaha! Wow, so much for "tread lightly".

I`ve got an old MPC Grrrrrumbler CJ somewhere around here in terrible condition. I`ve had it for 30 years or so. I put a 350 in it, built a cage and lifted it to the moon when I was a kid. I was looking at it a few weeks ago and thinking I should rebuild it as a King of the Hammers type race machine......one day.

I also have a Lindberg SR-5 Toyota 4x4 pickup. Its very old as well and in perfect condition. Its in the same box as the Jeep.

Very cool J-10 Jeff.

This is my ultimate project , though I'm still figuring out how to make the Snow-Trac ST4 tracks it used accurately (though the ones on dptydawg's model before look pretty close , are they from the lost in space chariot ???) . The Mini-Trac was built by an Australian and used at the Wilkes Base in Antarctica , I found the original builder , interviewed him and got a heap of old photo's of it in use and had a 4 page article published in the Australian magazine "The Mini Experience" .

I would love more 4x4 options. Older trucks, broncos, blazers and such.
