Sure, a certain sense of artistic accomplishment comes with spending hours upon painstakingly assembling pieces of an incredibly detailed display model, from a matchstick-replica White House to an intricate replica Klingon Bird of Prey. When you hunger for a much more practical challenge, Tamiya’s Cr01 Crawler Toyota Land Cruiser Kit awaits.
Consider this set your gateway drug to electrical and mechanical tinkering. This replica red Toyota Land Cruiser is made for you to add your own finishing radio-control touches to a miniaturized SUV you’ll ultimately be able to drive. Equipped with a 540 motor, four-wheel steering (with an option to install an additional heavy-duty servo) and all other working mechanical parts included, you’ll need to purchase and install only the battery, charger, radio, servo and speed control to finish a ground-up build of this fully functional electric jeep.
If you’re ready to step up to a performance toy with some serious go-anywhere horsepower, Tamiya’s Toyota Land Cruiser Kit may just be the in-depth build to test your mettle.
