After being inspired by an RC Mag Article of a Willy/Konghead Hybrid I had to build one.
With some aluminium strut, 2mm PVC sheeting, lots of body filler, time and hard work along with my son 3D printing some flared guards to merge with the existing ones here it is. My Willy 2 / Konghead Six Wheel Drive...

That is awesome! The G6-01 deserves so much better than the somewhat lame bodies that Tamiya provided. Great to see more inspired builds using this chassis, yours is very well executed

Green with envy!!!! I have a Willy bodyset sitting ready to do something similar to this on a Dynahead chassis. The 3 D printing takes it to a different level. Really good job.

Very nicely executed! This is what I expected from Tamiya for a fun 6 wheeled release. Looks way better than the Konghead and co. They could even make a special Wild Kumamon release

That is fantastic. There should be a thread on the forum titled 'Models Tamiya should have built' I hope someone there sees this, that shell would have massively increased their sales of the G6-01 chassis over the silly bus shell.

Very cool and nicely done. Next challenge: how about moving the roll bar all the way back and add rear seats so bunch of Willy’s friends can ride in his Wild Willy 6x6.

I noticed this when you first posted it and wasnt overly keen but weeks later I've looked again and it is growing on me. Either way, you have done an amazing job! Well done, very impressive.

Wow, this is so good. No offence to any owners but this is so much better than a konghead.

Thanks everyone for your comments. Yes it would have been a lot easier if tamiya did make it instead of me. But it was heaps of fun with my son helping me do the wheel arches with his 3D printer ..
