I'll bear that in mind, cheers

Headquake uses RCA cable that he splits down the middle. Works really well!

Looks great, detail is amazing. It is the detail that really makes these models.

Darn it, I was going for a Land Rover... seriously tho, kind words, thhank you

Not much of an update i'm affraid. Work has gone bonkers lately and left me with barely enough time to sleep let alone build, but I have made a start on some light lenses.....and of course, being an ex-army Landy it has odd shaped lenses

These are the odd shapes


First material....unable to find any perspex sheet thick enough I decided to use a damaged polycarbonate contact juggling ball


Made a hole cutter from a TV ariel plug


And started hacking




Ended up with some plugs

And started to shape them


Still need a lot of work tho

Also started the headlamps


Getting there but as ever it's a slow plod

Cheers mate

Got no plans to do Biling this year, the 1:1 being SORNed and no money makes it unlikly.

The mini mine is a long way from finished too still need to buy new axles and wheels and trying to find out the dimensions of the diff housing (pumpkin) on a 1:9 ultimate yota axle before I commit any money I haven't
got!

So sadly a no to both

Sweet, thanks man. As this build is a true 1:10th scale I just wanted to know the pumpkin wouldn't look stupid big, I can make that work Just need to get one, narrow it by 20 odd mm and find the Tamiya diff parts that I've been told fit so I can bless it with an open diff (running a bruiser split 2/4 wheel drive gearbox) and BINGO Hey, if you happen to know which Tamiya open diff bits fit...... That would be awsome
