Lol... the cool part about these badges is they were actually made for Land Rover themselves!
The one on this build is actually the 1948 design but was the correct size, I did need to remove the enamel and pin then thin it down to size before it went on

But I also got this one for my 1/6th Lightweight


This one is correct for the age of the Lightweight too

I was a very happy bunny when I got them

Absolutely stunning work. Badge / vents looks the business, and that thing looks amazing even in primer! Can't wait to see your paint job!

You've done a tremendous job with this build. I can't wait to see it finished, as I'm sure it will help inspire me to finish my series III.

Keep it up!

thanks guys

Been painting Green


No black


Wait a mo...white


Hang on....black again


Now green again


O.K. there is method to my madness The 1:1 has paint of many layers so to keep it "real" so does the mini mine (in roughly the right order)

The roof has less layers because I fitted that long after it was de-mobbed, tomorrow I can start on the finger, no, hand painting so will it end up green and black at the same time

Stunning. I remember my parents having a LWB Land Rover yeeeeaaars ago that we used for caravan holidays. Old Cheltenham Waterbuck caravan being towed by the tropical-roofed beast. Loved the fold down rear seats in the back of the thing. Good memories. Nice work here matey, any plans for another one in a different style?

High praise indeed Thanks. Yep, very lucky with the badge, had a go at making one but couldn't get it good enough. I knew these had been made in '98 so super lucky tracking one down
Etch primer was a bit of a given...aluminium + paint, if it's worth doin'...etc

No, had to move my kit car out the garage for that job!! The hand painting today was on the dinning table tho

Painting by numbers


The first coat








Obviously it's to fresh and clean but I will address that after some more detail stuff, need to finish the doors too but at least my nice postman brought me these today



Little springs for the door handles

I love that you painted all the layers like the 1:1. I hope this will be relocated to the top builds section when it's done.

Thanks man, wanted to do that so I can get flecks of the other colours peeping through, if I'm lucky get some flakey paint at some point too

Mmmm top builds, that's a cool thought

Thanks man. Any self respecting SIII has that dent, it's a mark of honor

On with an now

Having got my tiny springs now, I could get on with the door handles



Trimmed and fitted


X3


And a bit more paint with a different shade of green


The keen eyed among you will have noticed the textured black on the roof


Many moons ago the 1:1 leaked alot (now it just leaks a little ) so I, in a moment of desperation, slapped a coat of Thompsons Roof Seal on it! This gave it the rough texture (and splitting green paint) on the roof and why I've done it on the "mini mine"

Re-done the green on the roof so done painting for a while now


Also added the bonnet (hood) vents
