The Famed Land Cruiser’s 1989 Incarnation

Toyota’s Land Cruiser is a name familiar to millions across the world. Delving back into its storied history, the 80 series was a rebooting of the range which took place in October 1989. It featured a bulked up body with a great deal more curves than Land Cruiser owners had previously been treated to, but just as importantly, off-road performance had been overhauled too, thanks to a newly-designed chassis and coil sprung suspension that ensured a smooth ride even on rough off-road surfaces. This monster was the first domestic Japanese car to offer a full-time 4WD transmission, a fact that helped endear it to many.

Now I’m back working with kits since 2010, and dealing with every type from Tanks to Scifi, and experimenting a lot with the paintings and weathering looking to achieve life-like models.
