That is some tight photoshop work. What filters did you use to get that look.

Seems you are the man to ask, what Tamiya colour would you suggest is closest to the actual Toyota blue you have pictured. I want to paint the HPI FJ40 body for my Monster Beetle conversion of same?? Thanks for the pics, I am building this blue coloured kit for a good friend, in fact, he was my best man at my wedding.

Daniel, I also have a 1:1 BJ42 (1982 dune beige) and I think it the coolest car ever! If you check out my showroom you`ll see my FJ40/ Bruiser conversion - the pictures are not updated, I`ve added some more details to it now.

Great attention to detail - love the 'old transistorised speed controller' and the number plate!
