Baja Beast

Built by: Glaucio Sansonas  in Brazil

I call this “Pepper Kombi”. 

To make this, I used the Monogram Baja Beast as base and I made a lot of modifications. 

I modified the rear door (to make this open-able) and I copy the cover engine from a VW Type II Hasegawa kit. In the body I put a scoop in the roof and I closed the rear wheels. 

The seats are from a VW Beetle (Tamiya) and the wheels are from a Porsche (Fujimi Kit) and are painted with Alclad II Chrome with black base. 

The engine pulleys and the NOS cylinder are from Mr. Model ( and are made with aluminum

The tubular structure was made with round plastic bars and was painted with a gray from GM. 

To the paint, I used a color Blue from the Ford Ranger and a White Pearl. 

In front suspension I put independent arms. 

I tried to make a Show Car that can be used almost normally, to go and to come back from the meetings, for example. If I could, I would like to make something similar in the 1:1 scale.
