I've owned both an '88 and a '98 Jeep Cherokee and would like to build either.

Thank you!!! I have been wanting a kit of this since I started building.  The 80s stadium trucks are by far the coolest offroad trucks in my book, I wish I was alive to see them run at the time.  That was real racing, trucks flying everywhere and not a yellow flag in site.  I have seen the races through youtube and this was just crazy back in the day.

 

I also wouldn't mind some modern dirtbike kits.  Would be great to build a replica of my 06 RM-250, but I doubt the market is there.

I haven't seen anything that I wouldn't want to build ,I often wonder if more builders would have an interest if there were more options. Also I agree on the dirt bikes and an atv would be cool too.

Has anyone used the photoetched bead locks from www.dirtmodeler.com/ on anything?

Terrible movie.  The book is better.  Just. :D

 

I'm constantly surprised, give the number made, that there are not more Landcruisers kitted.  Personally i'd like full detail 60 and 100 series wagons.

Tamiya kitted an 80 series but I guess it didn't sell well enough to justify doing the 100.

I'm currently building one and it's a masterpiece of plastic engineering with working suspension and steering.

My "someday" list has severial early (1967 to 69) historic fiberglass buggys, like the first Mexican 1000 winner.

The only vehicle in this category that would be of any interest to me would be the Lamborghini LM.

Tomo - beautifull isn't the adjective I would choose.  Ruggedly handsome maybe?

 

Nice avatar BTW (even if I do prefer Sabbath Bl**dy Sabbath & Never Say Die).

The US missed out (and misses out) on a lot of cars the rest of the world gets - and Landcruisers are one.  We, the US, get fully loaded comfort cruisers meant to drive kids to school and then to the before lunch Margarita meeting followed by endless soccer tournaments and practice...

 

I had the pleasure of renting this down under:

and would have loved to ship it home!  Simple, solid, transportation - 6 cylinder diesel, full floating axles, snorkel, and manual windows and transmission!  A base model Landcruiser would interest me in a model, too, I guess, for nostalgia.

 

The US market missed on Toyota four door trucks for decades, too, and not sure why. 

 

That may be why the kits don't make it to the shelves...

:0!!   I saw that too!  

 

We were on Fraser Island - almost completely made of sand...and my middle daughter couldn't dig in it enough!  It was "old" sand too, so very soft...
