Retro Pick-Up Rover

aka the Calin-Mobile after the intrepid astronaut Calin whose photostream inspired the build.

 

Another fake internal combustion engine with a biotron power core. This time the air filter is really a device for boiling two eggs at the same time.

 

This is a further instance of seeing a model and wanting a version of my own. I always try and put my own twist to things however: after looking closely at his photo stream, I think this is built differently internally and the rear bed and the rear roof line are different. I also favoured strength over detail with the engine. But a Calin-Mobile it is... :-)

 

You must check his photostream out, as it's awesome. He gave me nothing but encouragement to post this model.
