Not quite all the detail I make in my tractors but this was a fun project I did for my wife Betty. She loves her little Suzuki to drive around our properties. It also allows our 2 lab’s to go along for an open air ride. This one has a Boxwood body [not one of my favorites] but it is a pretty wood. Red Cedar is used for the frame and accents. 4” lift kit just like her real one. She is going to make a canvas top for it someday. Detailed engine compartment and driveline. 1:12 scale like most of my replicas.

Hunter,

A beautiful job on this Suzu; excellent work.

Would also love to see a vid or pix of the two labs on an open air ride.

The project being with the wife is more important than any level of detail – it’s the fact that you both enjoyed the time together that’s most important. Besides – I’m thinking it’s plenty detailed and again nothing I’d have the patience to accomplish!
