Welcome to another Forty 3rd Christmas Village edition as I present to you another model included in my village.
We’ve seen a lot of models of the Land Cruiser FJ40 and I am a big fan of it. However I was surprise to discovery this little gem was available as a double cab pickup. I knew this is something I want in my growing collection of Land Cruiser. Here is the Toyota Land Cruiser Bandeirante PickUp 1976 (Light Blue) by WHITEBOX.
This double cab pickup is a very unique model as I have yet to see other manufacturer come up with this. This will be a nice compliment to my Ebbro Land Cruiser.
Now I could be wrong but I think having the modern Toyota logo instead of the word ‘Toyota’ on the front grill might be a glitch from the manufacturer. Also the headlight is rectangle instead of round. Only thing I can think of is this is more of a custom rather than stock.
Definitely fits well with my Christmas village. This is probably what you want to drive when snow starts to fall.
I will give this 5 out of 5 for detail, 5 for QC as this is my first WHITEBOX and have not found any problem, 4.5 out of 5 for play value as there are no openings and must be handle with caution.
WHITEBOX indicated on the display base that this model is limited to only 1,000 so if you are still thinking about it, better make it quick.
