Hello model builders, it was a nice and sunny day, so I took the FJ out for a ride! Here's the link to the build if you'd like to see: The plan was to convert a Toyota BJ44 into an FJ45 rock crawler. In case you're not familiar with idea, please see below: To convert the Italeri 1/24 BF into the FJ45 which is a pickup, and to make it look and generally function like rock crawler, by making operable front and rear four link suspension as shown above. So, outside we went for a trail ride: As you can see above, the operable suspension allows it to flex to adapt to terrain, keeping each tire on the ground - And there you have it! I really enjoy outdoor photos. I also took a few inside, and you can clearly see the benefit of natural light: I started this build several months ago, and just finished it up - I really wanted to get it done. In retrospect, and after seeing the outdoor images, I realize there are a variety of little details I should have added, and, well, could have done a better job on the weathering - but at the time, this was plenty to do, and I wanted to get it finished! Ok, thanks for having a look Cheers Nick
