FMS has released a 1/12 scale replica of the legendary Toyota FJ45. Back in the 1960s, Jeep’s leading model, the CJ5, was still bathed in the glory of war. The Wagoneer, the originator of luxury SUVs, had made its first sound, Detroit Ford Bronco and Chevrolet Blazer followed. At this time, in the field of the world auto industry, the United States is the undoubtedly leader, and there is nothing else in the field of 4WD off-road vehicles. At the same time, on the other side of the Pacific Ocean, at the foot of Mount Fuji, a square and simple off-road vehicle rolled off the Toyota production line, and a legendary story begins here.
The FJ45 pickup is a derivative model with a longer wheelbase and a car hopper on the basis of the FJ40. It was launched in 1963 and integrates the characteristics of low energy consumption and high-cost performance in the Toyota gene. It’s not as ostentatious as an American car, but it’s also very attractive, showing Toyota’s own style.
FMS super-finely restores the real car, and the degree of restoration is no less than that of the static model. The hood hinge is the same living hinge as the real car, and it looks slim and beautiful on the 1/12 model car. The motor, steering servo and 2-in-1 integrated ESC / receiver are all hidden under the hood, and the battery is also here, for easy installation. The doors on both sides can be opened, the front windshield can be folded forward, and if the roof is removed at the same time, it can be transformed into a convertible shape. If the screws on the slender hinges of the doors are removed, the doors can be removed, showing a more simple and wild performance.
