Here's my entry in the category of 'Real Vehicle'. Any person with 1 IQ point to thier name can guess what it is. I believe it's also a first on the pages; a minifig scale SUV with seating for multiple people. Please comment and rate!
About this creation
Aside from the SUV itself, I made a boat and trailer.
Six people can ride inside the vehicle, and so can their luggage.
The opened lift gate and the six suitcases.
Now for the seating arrangements. (One of my favorite things on this moc.)
The rear bench seats can fold down to make more room for things.
And for more room, I added this realistic feature that's based off an actual design: The 60/40 split seat. Shown here is the 60 portion folded.
And here's the 40 folded.
Phipson: Hey! What the!?
Me: Sorry! I'm just trying to show the available room inside!
Well, ummm...That was a bit awkward... Anyway, here's the space you get from both the rows folded: enough space to fit a surfboard or two, as well as a snowboard or two.
Something in me told me that I needed a picture of both rows fully folded without the boards.
On the top, there are also roof racks, shown here with two velocipedes.
This vehicle also has front and rear suspension.
Onto the boat and trailer...
here they are separated. The boat fits perfectly with the trailer. Why wouldn't it?
Genius! Just genius! I am looking at this and i see techniques i have never seen before! TALENT MAN! I LOVE IT!!!! (but also i would put another white cloth on the ground under the setup... it will make it look more professional.... in my opinion...)
I totally agree with Keith Goldman a ways below me, the vehicle is just stuffed with so much functionality I know know how this can get a score below 4. I love every part, the foldable seats were by far my favorite part. Just...Wow...
early twentieth-century british business tycoon: Well all in all sir I say you're spot on with this investment! As with all good bonds, chap, time will hold the true test of value! Hmmf yes. Might I suggest you bulk up your portfolio with some rare minerals or perhaps include some brandy? Hmmf yes. Very well. Shall we be off to the lounge, then?
I bet if Andrew made a MOC of his room it would have a crate full of rubber bands and technic parts. Alright shaun i think its time to comment on this model some more for Andrew to laugh at. Let's take turns commenting in various styles - I'll go first. eh hem...

Oh and my favorite part? you called the bikes "velocipedes." seriously like you're straight out of nineteenth century new england. wilbur wright, right here ladys and gentlemen hahaha. another terrific moc
Of all the words I know, that's probably my favorite one. It's so old- timey!
darn you andrew somers! you are a fair bit of healthy competition when it comes to wheels if I do say so myself! Thats a good thing though. okay, my favorite bits: 1 its an SUV. I love it just for that. I want to MOC my reallife Nissan Xterra as soon as im confident i can do it well enough. 2 the folding seats - they look great and are well designed. i even noticed you pulled a little 60/40 split action on that middle row there eh? very nice. 3 the adventure - it speaks to my lifestyle. 4 - the scene - you do great with what you have.

Can you make instructions for the traq federation terrain tracker?
Sorry, but no. Aside form being large, instruction making is a very tedious and time consuming effort that i'm just not fond of. The instructions for my suspension systems were small, and that's why I made them. To be honest, I'd prefer that you (or anyone else for that matter) Create something from your/their own imagination.
