Toyota Four Runner Rock crawler

Not exactly sure how you guys will take this since the bottom half is indeed a remote control car. I bought a 1/25 scale Losi 4wd Rock crawler and knew right away that I would have to adapt a model kit to get a realistic looking rig. I had this really trashed and hacked up Aoshima Toyota Four runner I got from a friend and I decided it would work out good. I cleaned it up and painted it, several different times as you can see :lol: I cut up the interior tub to make it fit and painted it also. I then added some gear such as the tow strap,gas cans and made a cooler. It is a fun little ongoing project that I can actually bring down to the creek and crawl with.

Nice! Love the 'built from spares' look you have going on with the body panels. The fact this one can do a bit more than just sit on a shelf is pretty cool, too.

Looks great , the only thing I'd say is missing since it is a driveable model is a driver figure , preferably with an evil expression on his face and preferably a terrified looking girlfriend beside him hanging on to the O F handle ;)

Hey cool I am glad you fellas are liking this thing as much as me. I might have to take it down to the creek bed later and snap some clearer pictures. You guys would be amazed at what this little thing can crawl over. Ian I totally agree with you man and I believe that will be the next thing I add. I also want to change the roll cage/bumpers to more realistic dimensions.....thanks for the comments guys.
