Title: [IC] DSS 4x4 // Alternate Modifiers Added
Post by: Fredington on Wed, 29 September 2021, 17:01:45
Hi everyone!

I wanted to make a simple set in a vintage sculpt celebrating legendary off road vehicles from the past like the Land Rover Defender, Ford Bronco, and my personal favorite, the Toyota FJ40.

Kits

Base

The goal here is to provide a relatively all-inclusive base kit that can cover most layouts from TKL down to 40s and ortho.

Novelties

I've kept this kit fairly slim for now. Let me know if you guys would like to see some more. Lately, I've been interested in exploring some Shift key novelties, so perhaps those will make an appearance here.

Deskmat

The deskmat was inspired by some of Toyota's vintage marketing material and features a subtle topographic pattern in the background.

FAQ

What do some of the novelty mods mean?

In these older vehicles, it was common to have two shift levers. One was for progressing through the gears and the other was for transferring the power from the transmission to either the front, rear, or both axles, depending on road conditions. Below is the instructional plate from an FJ40:

I like the alt mods better than the ones in the base kit. Any chance they could be swapped? Other than that, this is nice!
