Hello everyone,
I thought I might share this here.
It matches my Mariner :)
I've never shared a picture on a forum before... hope this works.

First... :welcome:

Second... Our system doesn't allow the first post by a member to display photos so no matter what you did, the photo wouldn't show. This is a spam deterrent. You should be good from now on. Here is the photo:

Kind of funny how the die cast has Escape wheels, front bumper, head and fog lights ... :?

I just noticed this part of your post!
Yes, in reality this is just a toy Ford Escape, but I wanted a toy that matches my car!
So I took my tube of touch up paint and some more paint and clay from a craft store, and made my own :)
I am not a skilled craftsman, but I do like to have fun.

Here are a few more pictures:

It's a Traxxas E-Maxx chassis

with a Barbie Escape that was cut up and painted for the body:

I made some custom stand-offs and added some painted plastic for windows. Someone gave me scanned PDF with lights and badge graphics that I printed on adhesive paper, cut out and stuck to the body for the finishing touches. It was a bit of work but it was fun.
