A Tamiya Lunchbox?! Sure, the most famous van in RC is undeniably cool, but you’re probably thinking, “What an odd choice for a project.” But, there is method to my madness. You see, in my humble opinion, far too many project vehicles–done by what I’ll call the RC media–represent an ability to spend lots of money far, far more than they really display an ability to use some creativity.
This is why I picked the Lunchbox. You can’t just bolt on every option part available and call it a project–there are no option parts available.
To trick this truck out, I’m going to have to get creative. Actually, we’re going to have to get creative. That’s right. This is going to be a group effort. I’m calling on you, fellow truckers. I want your input. What direction should we take this thing? What color? Keep it black or try something different? How about tires, rims, etc? Get creative. That’s the point.
In addition to getting creative, we’re going to have to get a little dirty because this project is going to require some fab work. Remember, you can’t just go out and buy it with this truck. If you want it, you’re to have to build it. Up first will be a new front bumper. Something a little less cow catcher maybe.
