Micro Model FX Utility Code 3 variations
An FX Utility repainted and roof racks added to replicate a surfers ute. The rear of another model has been used to create a trailer making a unique Ute trailer combination.
One of my early modifications I mated an FX Ute with a drink cargo rear. It required a hand built base to fit the extended model. I grew up drinking Tarax soft drinks so it was an obvious choice albeit not a well known brand now as it is no longer around. See another version under Code 3.
This model has been extended to include a dual cab portion. This required a new base to be made as well. A canopy has been hand built along with the dual cab portion. Slightly larger wheels have been used to give the model height compared to the basic factory model. An interior and windscreen have been included. See link for more photos.

This model has been chopped behind the rear window. The rear of the vehicle has been extensively modified and a new base plate has been hand built to conform with the new size of the vehicle. A real timber tray top has been added and the parts have been secured together to complete the model. After market wheels and tyres and the addition of jewel lights complete the transformation.
