Re: Suzuki 4x4

I'm not a perfect builder yet, there is still a lot that must be improved
This was my 1st attempt to build a Suzuki SJ 410 4x4
I had a Suzuki at that time and I could not find any replica toy at any shop
One of my friends send a plain fold up paper model
So I decided to change it to a more realistic model
I cut out all the pieces and start to assemble it and create my own  parts for the rest of the model


The scale will be prox 1:72


The chassis is my own design

Here is the doors - I use some silver paper for the mirror (Chocolate paper)

My own design of the engine no particular patent - Something out of my head




Some idea for the wheels to rotate freely

Here is the body - The fire wall is also my own creation.
Foot pedals - The will be a R/H side model - rear mirror in the center 




Chassis - Seats and gear lever





Must not forget to put wipers on at the wind screen...




Thickness of wheel - will work easier when I assemble it ( used Polystyrene ) (just and idea that pop in my head)
















Bring the rear bumper more out

Time to do the diff - Prop shaft - Exhaust etc..

Feel free to post your builds (this one, next one, any one) in the "Builds in Progress" area and the "Finished Work Gallery".
That way more people will see your stuff.
(Not everyone reads the introductions)

There are plenty of different areas for different types of posts.

Looks like you are off to a good start with the Suzuki.
