Enhanced 2014 Jawa Sandcrawler
I was thrilled to receive the 2014 Sandcrawler for Christmas. I always liked the look of the 2005 brick built version. So with a 70.00 Bricklink order, I decided to enhance the look of this great set and get rid of the studs on top look of this version. I hope that I was successful. Please rate and comment both positive and negative . Thanks Jimmie
About this creation

The roof I wanted to keep a much detail as possible, while giving it as clean a look as I could.

I didn't have to do much to the back except add some back up lights and tail lights.

The tiles give a lot more support to the outer structure and to me bring it more in line with the ones used in the movie, for not a very large investment.

With all the tiles I added, the bow hatch became too heavy for the mechanism to hold it in the closed position. So I added a mechanical latching system to hold it closed.

I used tiles in only 3 main colors to smooth the surface of the crawler. I didn't do any mods to the inside.{reddish brown, medium dark flesh, and tan.}

Quoting Nico Bak318 That looks so cool! It's everything together, the shape, the colours, the use of parts. The tracks fit great to the shape. It must look awesome to put some steampunk buildings behind it, something you see on posters.
I am glad to have impressed a builder of your skills Nico. Thanks for stopping by and liking

Quoting Jake McAllen Nice job on the whole thing in general! But do the lights really work when backing up or turning? If so, maybe you could take a short video to show us. Please? ~Jake McAllen

I find that putting tiles all over angles plates often makes things look worse. That said, in many of these pictures, it looks like it worked quite well on a sandcrawler.

That's awesome. You know what? I would totally live in one of those if I could. It would be kind of an all terrain motor home or something. Great job.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti I bought this set too, and I just love the modifications you made. I was thinking that it needed more tiles too. With the tiles it looks like the filming model from the film. You did a brilliant job!
Thanks for the great comment Clayton I'm glad you liked it. my favorite is the one on CUSOO but for not a lot more money I think you get a much better model.
