well... i've spend all my free time on this build. The model kit I'm using is a 1/24 Toyota Land Cruiser 80 series made by Tamiya. So far, I've got both axles mounted, but still need some improvement. Now I'll let the pics speak for themself.

Update: Now the rear end have 4 links suspension set up. Trimmed up the engine bay and installed the servo, still need to mount the upper links on the front axle.

wow sounds cool, i mite have to see if i can find that thread if you posted it.

and just found the box i got the rims in so i got the name they are RC4WD Rok Lox not so sure im going to use them on the fished product, if the hub was just a bit smaller they'd be perfect

Thanks for the info.

Dang, some spendy tires and that is just for 2 with out wheels?? :blink: ??????

I think I might have a extra winch bumper for a LandCruizer.

Hardest part is finding it B):lol::unsure:
