    I just seen the preview and thought it looks good.

    I enjoy car movies weather they are stupid or not. One thing I like about all the fast and furious movies is
    all the action with cars. Oh and Jordana Brewster

    That kit is the wrong body style, I think What I am looking for is a FJ-55

    I also added a dodge to the original post.

    Were these kits ever made?
    I am trying to find a few kits but am having problems.

    First one is a 1970 Ford F-100 pickup. I have found a 72 resin kit on ebay but it has the wrong grill.

    Second I am trying to find a 1967 Toyota land cruiser.

    Third is a 1950 dodge truck.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Lighting
    I have been wondering what kind of lights and wiring/batterys people use when making cars lights work and for diorama lights.

    I am thinking about making working lights on a car and I want my first diorama to have some lighting too.

    Well Here she is so far, I have to put on a few decals and finish painting a few things. I am going to put on a headache rack and once I find a trailer I will add air lines. I am also going to buy better rims and tires once I find a good set.

    Getting closer to being done!!
