Nice to see a kit of a new SUV subject! Despite claiming to be "no glue", it has a nice amount of detail. The only minus is having the door panels and seat bottoms molded to the interior tub.

Looks like a great kit! I wouldn’t mind getting one.

Thanks for posting! My mother has always wanted one. I might have to build her a copy.

Odd they didn't plate the tree with amongst other parts the headlamp backings.

 

It is odd Luc, I agree.

Looks like a nice kit, a bit more detailed than the typical US "no glue/no paint" kit. What did that cost you if you don't mind me asking? I would swap those tires with a set of All Terrain BFGs from Fireball.

I agree, overall the detail is pretty decent for being a snapper if you will, $35 US

Thanks for sharing; I have the same kit on the slow registered SAL boat, should land in a couple weeks. Fun subject, surprised it took this long to have a model of it. Looks like the body parts breakdown mostly eliminates visible mold seam lines like the Hustler/Flair duo?

That is what it looks Bob,  I am not seeing mold/seem lines, so one should be able to build this sucker right out of the box and not have worry about removing them.   On a personal note, I am looking forward to building this one, I am having/had fun building the Hustler.

I do not see the Snorkle Air Intake Tube that seems to be on a bout half the FJs I see here in California.

I wonder if they'll do a later Off Road version with more aggressive tires, and the optional parts?

There is none, probably because its 100% showroom stock kit,  I have no doubts that someone will make the off road bits in either resin or 3D printed at some point, and maybe a Left Hand Drive dash too.
