Full Size R/C Toy Jeep Ready to Pop a Wheelie

by Conner Flynn

Just look at the size of that RC Jeep. Both the jeep and its controller are scaled to match the classic Tamiya Wild Willy toy R/C car. If they built a few more and put some medical tents up, we would be well on our way to having an R/C M.A.S.H unit. Cue the theme song.

This huge R/C toy was built at The Bug Box, a mechanical shop and studio in Weiden, Germany. You might notice that the jeep even has the old ribbed R/C car tires. In fact this 1:1 scale model is true to the original model in almost every detail. Yes, that includes the giant Acoms radio control, though it’s not clear if it’s actually functional or just for show.

This would be a whole lot of fun to play with and this model is very good for popping wheelies too.
