It is a great mini me. On your 1:1 what the extra vents for on the bonet.

Cheers fella. Under that standard looking SIII front end lurks an SD1 lump, as I'm still running the 2.25's radiator (with a Kenlowe fan and thermostat) and the engines thermostat has been removed, he can still get a little hot under the coller when working hard off-road. The extra vents are just to aid cooling, there's two large holes on eithers side of the bonnet, the covers help stop rain going straight in.

Funny you should say that, when I took the pics yesterday I did decide the old fella needs another lick of paint! Every few years I go round it with a chiesel to scape the flakey bits off And slap on a new coat, it's that time again!!

As for the scars (dents)........It's denting day today my heart is in my mouth as I phsyc myself up to do it.........don't mind denting it, just worried about being able to replicate the dents "nicely", it could go horribly wrong

O.K. been outside with a hammer this is what happened.....

The real dent


The little dent


And again




Etc




And so it went on, there are loads more dents but to many to show
After I'd filled and sanded the dents that I needed to get rid of the working marks from, I'm reasonably happy with the results, gonna have another look with a fresh eye tomorrow to see if I'm still happy.

When/if I'm happy then I can think about paint, yes paint, WOO HOO

Absolutely brilliant work, Sir. I used to own a Transitional '69 SIIA or 'Bug Eye', that I bought in Canada some years back, and drove it back down to the States. The frame cracked horribly just ahead of the bulkhead and I ended up parting it out over the following year. Broke my heart. I still have some bits of her floating around my garage... Anyway, parting a 1:1 out will get you real intimate with a vehicle, and the level of detail you are crafting into your 'mini mine' is simply astonishing. I absolutely cannot wait to see this finished. Subscribed. I'm building a Wolf XD TUL using the D90 hardbody, Komodo axles, SCX chassis, tangos/mudpluggers... but nothing even in the same postcode as this.

Ah, that's why you spotted the plaque. I've lapsed from all clubs too, done rtv's, shows, play days, basic off-road driver training and the Warn Winch Challenge (didn't do well, forgot to get skuck , impressed Vince Cobley with my ability with such an old skool motor tho!) just do the odd play day and byways now

Thanks man, I snapped my IIa in half too did the same and parted it, still got some bit aswell, the roof rides on my current Landy, the back door is now part of this build
The 1:1 of this build is only my second (only ever needed two) which I've had for a snip under 18yrs, it's a keeper! Glad you like this build and i'll keep an eye out for your Wolf, got a thread?

Thanks Ian, you can go back and read the whole thread now Glad you like

I would never have been able to dent up a landy (and a lot of work ) looks great though!

ps. whats up with this vince cobley guy? I readt about him on a few forums but from what I understand he is like a off-road god
