Reader’s Ride: Seth Tastad’s Tamiya Jeep Wrangler

Readers Rides

Seth tells us that this truck started out as a Tamiya CC-01 Jeep Wrangler and the body was modified using styrene, copper and brass.  It even has a detailed interior that was taken from a New Bright toy.  It features a roll cage and a Tamiya Bruiser Driver completes it.  The body was weathered with artist chalks, washes, bugging back through old layers and using real rusting iron paint in some areas.  He tells us that the truck was built for the MSD scale Nat’s Street Expedition class.
