    Hi There,

    And another project to share with you all here, not to be taken to seriously, it's a funproject ment for a bit of fun in between trials at meetings.
    A hilux build as a surfers truck, with a jetski to match.

    Very straightforward build up, a chassis made on a jetflow, Axial tranny and TLT axles, 35T Tamiya motor with a 104 ESC, all made to run without problems, remember it's for fun:

    I rebuild the bed to look like my real jetski trailer, and some woodfinish for a nautic look:

    Then the woodypart, i used real wood, not the easy way but a decal just looked phoney:

    After some paint:

    It's not done yet, some LEDs need to be put in and it gets a trialer with a vintage Funco Beachbuggy on it, and some more detailling, i'll keep you posted!

    All the best from Holland, Rick

    Thanks guys, your nice comments are a nice surprise!

    Some pics off the whole thing, the rims are alu topcad's by the way, if your not set on beadlocks check them out, they come with 3 sizes offset.

    WOW AWESOME :disappearing:
    I fully agree with this deco, your models are gorgeous.
    Could you take pictures of your trailer more closely and if possible to see the mounting your axles :haveaniceday:
