My LR series will not be made ​​for major efforts, only rides a motorized model any more, and the glue may be sufficient.

Oops ... you got those pictures of the chassis of 109?
I think I saw on this topic, but can not find.
Thank you padre, I hope it works under the LR! Yes, collars are glued, the inner collar is longer than the outer too. I can not pull it apart with all my strength so I think glue is sufficient
I am looking for good 109 chassis pictures to send you (soon I hope)
Greetings

I do not want to waste your time, better finish your LR.
I thought I'd saved some level.
I have some things, but would need a profile measures.
But given the 109 "and overall length measures giving no problems and if the chassis is not shaped identical to the 1 / 1 not notice much (not circulate like this)

See, most beautiful thing, so will mine.

Rarely seen without the roof here, looks "African" and I really like.
No more annoying you, that I am messing your thread.

Pare, I don"t think you will find anything more accurate than the coach builders drawings you have....

Made as start on the chassis mods now




Much more to go but within the confines of the Bruiser chassis, it's looking a bit more Land Roverish

These drawings are charming, almost ingenuos.Me really like.
We already get used to large 3D drawings and these seem to have 100 years.

Surely build the chassis mixed (plastic, aluminum and fiberglass) as my Defender, which seems tough and I think I can do something like 1 / 1.
regards


From all this, my dear translator does a soup unpalatable.

"Made as start on the chassis mods now "

"Much more to go but within the confines of the Bruiser chassis, it's looking a bit more Land Roverish"


Surely you will understand later, but sise refers to the new pieces look great.
Some paint quickly to get a better idea of ​​the whole.
Greetings.

Well I have been on holiday but am back and I have managed to get a bit more work done in the chassis dept

Padre, sorry crazy translator doesn't do his job well! hope this will help....

"made a start on the chassis mods now" = I have started to change the chassis to look more like LR

"Much more to go but within the confines of the Bruiser chassis, it's looking a bit more Land Roverish" = more work to do but as this is a Tamiya Bruiser chassis I am happy it is looking more like a LR chassis.



On with the update...Brazed up the bumpers (after reminding myself how to braze ) and put some paint on




Converted some stock Knight Hauler shocks which I had laying around into something similar to LR shocks. Stock shock on right then one for the rear and one for the front.


Fitted them




Next job is to swap the original three step for an ESC and re-fit the transmission and electrics.

Cheer mate, does look better now shocks worked out well too

The mesh is....well......mesh was sent a sample from a supplier in Liverpool I had to solder the edges to stop it falling apart as is it a weave but it is a nice scale size (10 holes per inch. 0.56mm wire. Hole size 2mm)

If you must have you better PM me your address and the size you need as I have left overs

Couldn't resist.......VIDEO

Well after putting an ESC in it, it would be rude not to Obviously not finished yet and it's only a short video and just a test but still, it's a video!



I know it's not much, no mud (well the front axle has no third member fitted and the cover isn't on the RC box), it still only has two wheel drive and the body's not finished but I hope you like

I really like this build, the scale detail is fantastic. Well done.

I think this build is particularly dangerous to the reader though. Something in the way you've presented the build makes a project like this look possible for meer mortals.

Looks like you have a set of the hwpeterl aluminium wheels - in the pictures on eBay they look great. If that's what they are then are they as good as they look?

Thanks man, Honestly not that difficult well maybe a bit tricky in places

Not hwpeterl wheels, just RC4WD stock steel.

Well having had a little drive and sorted the niggles that were present like the end of the motor shaft rubbing on the grill panel and the front shocks not having enough droop, it's back to detail on the body.....

made some D rings now, just bent a spare control arm into a D shape and brazed it to a base (twice ) and the result...


And for comparison, the lil' one


And the big 'un


Still much to do on the outside but the yard work needs doing before wifey gets home......or......
