RC4WD TF2 – “Top Gear Toyota Hilux” build…

The RC4WD Trail Finder 2 has been a great Model for my build series. Im doing my best to Mimic the UK’s version of the Top Gear Hilux Truck.. and Wow.. Im simply STOKED! Im leaving everything on the chassis STOCK. I have only modified the Plastic Pieces of the BODY to make it look beaten up, aged, and making it look as though its been through HELL AND BACK! In this video I show how I detail some of my rust areas.. and continue to make the truck as realistic looking as possible. This tutorial series is a longer format – showing where BUILDING AN RC can be full of creative style, imagination and best of all.. FUN!

Some of these techniques are usable with lexan bodies and others as well!
