    Default Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80 US-Version

    Hi all,
    my name is Jens and im from Germany. Im glade to be in this forum, thanks.
    I will show you my lastest build. Im a real fan of the Toyota LC80 and most i like the petrol versions.
    here are some pics of my interpretation with the US-Version in 1.9 as hardbody.

    The Chassis is build by myselfe. he is laser cuted and powdercoted. Material is 8mm steel to have it havy as possible.

    More technical infos:

    Axles: RC4WD Yota I frot with XVDs
    Gearbox: RC4WD
    Transfercase: RC4WD 1:1
    Motor: HobbyHolms 27T with 20t
    ESC: Tekin FX-R
    Driveshaft: RC4WD Superscale
    Servo: Savx Digital 20kg

    The interieur baseplate is build out nearly 100 pices! and is under custruction. Also the badges are still missing.

    So and here are now the pics:































    Hope u like him.
    Cheers
    Jens

    Really nice, thats coming along really great so far. Nice stance.
    This is the first one of these bodies i've seen used that hasn't been cut to pieces.

    That's because most of us are crazy!

    Welcome to the SBG Jens, that's a fine looking build. Your interior shell is very nicely put together, and your paint work is stellar! How did you get it so smooth?!

    I look forward to seeing more from you.

    Hi all,
    thank you so much for your welcome and that you like him.

    Next is to put in the leds that he gets the original us-style lights all around.
    then i paint the underneth of the intereur and start to create the inside of him.
    I saw in a verry cool build of the Ascender so cool frontseats maybe from an canadian??
    but i cant find them to get them!!!!!!!!!!!!
    For the outside comes rearmudflaps and the badges, thats all i gues.
    The body is painted by an carpainter in original Toyota light gold 4K1 1989 up to 1994.
    All details are paintet by my self, for the bumpers i used tamiya gunmetall with clearcot.
    The sidemirrors are realy moveable so i had to paint them also self, to smal parts for a painter....

    At the chassis i lost a bit of travelway when i build in the dinky cantilevers, but it looks so stock, i had to put it in.

    On the body i mod the reargate, the stepbords, the wipers for an LHD and sand him so smoth i can.
    Also i double the doorhandels for better look after paint.

    Cheers
    Jens
