  • move

Cast in 60+ parts with photoetch for the windscreen and a seated driver figure, this 1/35 "Dustbuster" dune buggy "jumps" off a small sandy hill in "Fichtenfoo's" vignette of this resin 4X4 off-road vehicle. See it built and painted and how he assembled this kit.

More information at Fichtenfoo's website, including step-by-step instructions and advice on weathering and making the base for this vehicle.

About the Author

About Michael Fichtenmayer (FichtenFoo)

I'm a web and graphic designer and currently a stay-at-home dad from Pittsburgh, PA. I've been modeling since late 2001 and while my main model subject love is giant robots, I enjoy the occasional armor piece or combination of afv and robots.


Wow, great build. Very dynamic placing of the model. Thanks for sharing

Awesome, I was following this one's progress along with some of the other upcoming kits on your site. I have a couple of earlier kits and they are really well done. I was really interested in this one because of the RAGE vibe it had going on. I was curious why 1/35 was chosen though. It's not a bad scale, just a little unusual for cars.
