Lego Grand Wagoneer

So on Christmas my brother-in-law surprised my son (and myself) with a Lego Grand Wagoneer. He designed it on the Lego website somehow and they sent him all of the pieces and he put it together. The back seat even folds up!

A little background on my brother-in-law, he is very good with his hands and designing things. Here is his GW:




He took one of the die cast models (you can see it pictured in the background) and modified it to look like this:

They used to come in their own box but they don't any longer. He made that box for the kit.

It's been awhile... But I seem to remember the LEGO site will identify the pieces needed based on a submitted design.

Can you get your brother-in-law to share the solution from LEGO?

Those are minimum requirements...if you're too old that means you quit breathing at some point.

Auto Art, I believe they come in 1:18 and 1:32, and don't cut them up, the 1:18s are $200-$250 a pop.

Looks awesome. I started working on one in the Lego Studio thing on their website. Each time I'd get half way through my design and think of another way to do it. I wanted working doors so I had to compromise. Never finished it but glad someone else saw it through. On the Lego site you are limited to the colors they have for the individual pieces.

Big question is ... does the tailgate window work?
