The best part is that it's got some genuine Land Rover parts in it. Well done

Thank you, Every time I look at my 1:1 sand rail I think about the fire.....lost loads of that car in it, including the bonnet!!

Thanks man, building a mini mine does prove handy but I can't use any "poetic licence"

Had to be done, it's actually from my first Landy, then lived on this one for a while too!!

So onto the update....
Getting the roof together




In order to get it all lined up nicely I took a two pronged approach, building from the middle both up and down....




This method did mean a lot of putting on and taking off again but was worth it in the end





I'm quite pleasd with the gutter round the back end...


Putting it on for final time...


Finally fitted!!




I even remembered the little gutter under the front screen!!


Doors and bonnet next.... Thanks again for your comments and praise, makes annoying my wife with this build worth while

I'm truly jealous

Did you bolt all the parts together or did you also glue some parts together?

This is awesome. It's great to see; I had a similar idea for a Defender 110, on probably an MRC chassis, but I've got a slight cash defficiency. Good to see the ally-forming works though.

Are you going to rivet it to a steel frame so the panels all fall off when they get damp?

Rod.

So far the only glue is along the two seams across the front of the roof. At this point there are 90 nuts & bolts and 5 rivets holding it together! When I start putting detail on then more glue will come in to play.

Thanks man, I'm glad to see it starting to look like my Landy..... Kinda forced into this build as nobody makes a SIII so only way to get one is to make one...

Am I going to rivet it to a steel frame?.......funny, not true, but funny
