Great Australian Ute
Posted 10 November 2012 - 12:03 PM
Ute or Utility Vehicles are very common here in Australia so I had a go at making one up. Hope you like!
Runs 4 M motors via remote control for Suicide doors, Tray back and reverse lifting front end.
Bonnet (hood) also opens but is HOG as is steering and propulsion.

just need a big set of mack truck mud flaps on the back and some RM williams stickers lol
Thanks maaaaate add those extra's then I can enter it in the Deni Ute Muster. Might need a few BIG CB aerials too.
You nailed it Hopey. I got my inspiration from a show car Statesman. It was however a Panelvan which had the front end lifting the same as this MOC. Original plan was to build a panelvan but ran out of parts quickly.
Agreed Alasdair but by the time I realised it was to square I was getting sick of the build so I just went with it.

Yeh there is a good contingent of Aussie's on here. You can usually tell by our English no worries, hey mate! Never bought off BL looked many times though. I've found the bigger sets when on sale are really good value for parts.
Thanks jonwill, They sure are getting old and you don't see that many on our roads anymore.....
Thanks Dr Spock, seems a lot of people like the suicide doors and I'm sure they would suit Batman just fine.

I am lucky enough to hear/see a purple, flat tray, supercharged 292 HQ ute cruise around near my place fairly often. it's a beauty!
Thanks Kierna, I started this MOC at the grille which is probably why the scale isn't right.
Supercharged hey would sounds sweeeet!

Thanks Tadej. It's very far from being an accurate model. It's basically a 'Show' version of an Australian Ute with unusual features to capture the judges eyes.
You can tell not many Europeans get this Ute due to the lack of comments. I guess it's an Australian thing!
