This build is done by our friend in France, VINCEREEF! Here is his New member check-in thread: http://board.marlincrawler.com/index.php?topic=88837.0.
I searched Google and found his original build thread on this French forum, http://www.scale-rc-car.com/forum/showthread.php?115-HI-LUX-MARLIN-Crawler

Great work VINCEREEF!! :bowdown: On with the pictures! :snapshot:

I bet a good camera shot would fool most people into thinking it was a real truck.  Very nice!

So realistic, especially the action hero driver. I bet nobody knew that Marlin was so buff under that uniform and I could never figure out how he tucks those gold locks under his cap.

Hello, a little question! I'm looking for the design of the tires fitted to the hi lux 1/1? A picture would be cool. The rims are 15 'or 19'?
 I want to finalize this project to the end ..
 In advance thank you

The tires on it in the first pic posted are super swamper iroks. Not sure on wheel size though, either 15 or 17

Closer to the 2nd picture. Marlin is running 15" rims.

Take a look at what BigBird did, he made a 1.5" outer diameter on a 1.9" wheel, and then modified each tire by cutting and gluing different sidewalls together: http://board.marlincrawler.com/index.php?topic=52887.msg888062#msg888062

End result is a 1.5" tall rim, or a 1/10th scale 15" rim

 for sure adding the extra rubber to the sidewall to run a smaller rim will be way closer to scale, lots of work, but well worth it. click on the link that Big Mike posted. and pleas ask any questions. Rick
