Ran it last sunday with my brother Spencertrax, and was rather pleased with the
results.
will post some action shots at a later date, when I get the paint and scale details
done.

Perhaps there should be a scale 6x6 of the month lol

Thanks, I think it is going to be cool once I get the details worked out.
There are a few directions I could go with the scale details.
african safari look with zebra stiped paint!
paris - dakar rally racer lots of off road lights and flashy corperate logo paint job
military/ rescue vehicle or perhaps just a civillian off road work truck.
Any sugestions are welcome, and I will take credit for them without any shame!
Ha! Ha!

Looks Good

I see you washed it off, looks good. Flat black rat rod look? :biggthumpup:

Awesome little rig Rob!
My vote's for the Paris Dakar buildup, may be the best challenge and a bit more of a fresh concept. It's a natural Millitary/Recovery vehicle and would be cool like that too.
Loving the body mods, possibly a canvas rack/cover for the back with all of the gear in it?

Repaint and thin no more

I have been cruising a buch off P to D rally image galleries getting ideas for a
paint job, then I spend time looking at army 6x6 from all over the world and
still can't decide .
Just a thought there was a vw bus on magnum PI , with a cool paint job!

Yeah, TC's micro bus was brown, orange and yellow like the chopper I think?
Only thing about that is what accessories do you put in the back?
Maybe a surfboard from a Hilux

re magnum

With it being a jacked up 6x6 it could be a tacky A-Team meets Magnum PI
LOL Rob.

I like the Island Hoppers theme the much better than A team Rob.
What happened to the Rally edition?

Since I love the V-dubs so much, you've got my vote for 6x6 of the month...and I actually have to go with Kev's idea on the rally truck theme, scale accessories galore...:bowdown:

paint fumes

Well I got around to spraying on some paint to the 6X6 veedub.
I think that I might have breathed in a little too much paint fumes,
because once I started I couldn't stop.
So here it is 7 krylon colors later

lol. Not that there is anything wrong with that......:laugh:

It looks, um... interesting, Rob, but looks like it works great, like you have some sweet wheelspeed throwing some sand. Nice.

The sixties craze would have a paint job like that to show individuality, while the militants would love to do the VeeDub in the flat green with military spares and accessories just to irritate the hipsters...
