Toyota Hilux 1:35 GROM

The Base Model is a 1:35 Scale Pickup from Meng
The vehicle belongs to the Polish Special Unit G.R.O.M from operations in Afghanistan
What I did:

  • removal of the door on the right side of the front and rear.

  • removal of the rear left door

  • building a cabin cage with b and c pillars for the right and left sides

  • in addition, there are seat belts on the b-pillars

  • rework of the front bumper

  • making a winch in the front

  • reworking the back of the frame, adding a tow hook

  • altering the rims to the correct pattern

  • tinted rear window made new because it broke from the model

  • refrigerator, pelikan boxes, 3D print warning light

  • handle removed from the tailgate

Okay, end of babbling, enjoy watching


Looks great. Nice job on removal of the doors and pillar additions.

thank you
By making additional posts, the construction of the model took over a year

Well done! Did you scratch the cargo net or use aftermarket?

Perhaps this might tempt you into building a second one? :slight_smile:

I made the cargo net from scratch from 1mm thick masking tape, painted it with acrylic paint from MIG and used a wash from the Polish manufacturer Modellers imitating sand

From the pickup I also have an Afghan Police Ford and a Toyota Land Cruser probably Desert Storm Green Berets

Great built, nicely done pillars and other extra works. :+1:

Computer matched varnish is a joke :wink: as we say in Poland, matched by eye’’ it is a mix of green metallic and blue metallic from the Gunze palette
