This is my pride and joy. All custom built by myself 2 years ago as a scale trail truck. It started as a standard TF2 that I installed the GCM Racing scale transmission that gives about 10% overdrive to the front wheels. I built a custom styrene interior, and brazed up a custom steel rear bed, sliders and front winch bumper. It also has working lights and a working winch.

Recently I brazed up an 'anti wrap bar' to stop the rear leafs bending up while it's trying to climb up stuff. I'll put a few pics of that at the end of the pics.

2 Completed truck 7 Interior waiting for the driver figure. 3 RC4WD Scale Shocks. Filled with 100,00 diff oil. 3 Steel brazed front bumper housing a working winch 4 Completed interior. 2 Winch bumper, before painting. 2 Etch primered rear bed. (My dad's D90 cage also) 2 Sliders complete, waiting for etch primer. 3 Working on the rear bed. 1 Beginning to take shape. 1 Starting to bend up the cage. 5mm steel tube. 3 More work on the interior. 4 1.5mm & 2mm stryene. 3 Custom made transmission mount. 5 Basic TF2 assembled. 2 Steel Anti Wrap Bar. Prevents axles wrap. 1 Steel Anti Wrap Bar. Prevents axles wrap. 2 Steel Anti Wrap Bar. Prevents axles wrap. 1 Driver figure. No name yet.

Very cool truck and love the scale garage lots of details , those props and the RC4WD parts are not cheap. Best of all, that Mona Lisa ??

Awesome, totally awesome! The colour on this thing is great, the brazing and interior even greater! Must be fun to take this trailing/crawling.

@ JYCM3
Thanks. The Mona Lisa is actually the mascot for the 'Dirty Richard' foams made by Pit Bull Tyres. I just printed it on some ink jet friendly canvas.

@ Tamiyastef Thanks very much for the kind words. It is an absolute pleasure to drive. It's pretty capable for a 'leafer'.
