Advice for rockhound truck in Utah

Postby Aaronosaurus » August 15th, 2017, 9:58 am

I'm a rockhound, and thought I'd work on my little truck a bit....
Obviously not a screen recreation..... but think it might be fun.
Any comments from the group?

I like Jurassic Park inspired vehicles just as much as the replicas. It is fun to think of what other vehicles that might have been. Another cool thing about making a not screen accurate vehicle is that you get to make up the story of its history. There have been some that have transformed other vehicles into JP tributes, you might check the forum and get some ideas. Unfortunately photobucket has caused problems with some of the posts here :x I'm not sure if the decal is on this site, but it might be cool to find the logo on Grant's truck from Jurassic Park 3. You might try the Jurassic World look too.

The rub is, the backstory..... My little truck is a 93, which puts it in the same year as the JPJeeps........ Since that time frame is the origional logo..., as a rockhound/fossil collector.... I would have worked directly with John Hammond, of course!

I suppose that story would work for the Jurassic World theme as well....
Besides, if I had to rescue only one person, I'd have to pick the girl over the old man.... right?

I like the story of being a fossil collector for Hammond. Your truck looks fitting for that era and job with the first design you posted.
