Aussie Overlanders are now offering Mini Rigs in Australia. Mini Rigs are laser cut high quality 3mm plywood models of your favorite off road vehicles. The extremely detailed models are about 12cm tall x 25cm long x 10cm wide, and are ready to be fully kitted out with all the essential trail gear any proper rig requires.
While all Mini Rigs are modeled after iconic vehicles, it is important to individualize your rig, like you would any full size rig. The Mini Rig accessory kits offer up gear like; jerry cans, high lift jacks, shovels, roof racks, bullbars, spare tires, spotties and snorkels. You can even get a “tailored canvas cover” for the Series 1 model. If you want your rig expedition ready, you need to grab an accessory kit!
Mini Rigs come in a flat pack and ready to build. It should take you less than a day for the build, even without instructions, which aren’t included. Who really reads the instructions anyway? If you do get in a bind, and can’t find the right homes for all the pieces, Aussie Overlanders will email you a basic help sheet. The pieces all push together, and it’s a good idea to mock up the build before you break out the wood glue to solidify your masterpiece.
Currently you can get your hands on Mini Rig models of the Land Rover Defender 110 and Series 1, while you can express interest in the Toyota Troop Carrier, Land Rover Defender 90 or any other rig you’d like to see be made into a Mini Rig.
For under $100 you can build a fully accessorized Mini Rig of your own. Now if only it cost that little, and took less than a day, to build your full sized trail rig!
