Jurassic Park Land Cruiser
Posted by spencer1984 on Friday, August 02, 2019 8:03 PM

This is a build I was sure I had posted here, until I was reading aussiemuscle308's post on the movie tour car (http://cs.scaleautomag.com/sca/modeling_subjects/f/33/t/131459.aspx) and found out I had completely forgotten to actually make said post.

The Land Cruiser tour cars mentioned in the book were always something that I wanted to build in scale, but since the descriptions of them were a bit sparse it took me a few brainstorming sessions to come up with a design that I liked and felt fit the time and style of the story. The kit was Tamiya's 80 VX Limited, modified to look like a not-quite-finished preproduction variant. Custom additions include a scratchbuilt electric motor/transmission setup, generic dashboard with 2x late '80s computer monitors, and graphics I drew up in Illustrator.

cool. i love the extra detail that makes it really pop. the color scheme is pretty eye-catching too. There's a lot of differences between the book and the movie and i do remember reading they were Toyotas (not Ford Exploder like the movie)

Thanks! Yeah, the book and movie are so far removed from each other they're almost totally different stories.
