Well I'm back on the detail now and decided to start at the front and work my way to the back.....The grill, simple styrene job, you know the score, cut glue etc etc..


Add some mesh


Paint


Chuck on truck


Hmmm, not too bad me thinks did notice a couple of minor smeg ups tho, the N in Land-Rover is a bit wonky (Grrrr too late now so I will leave it ) and the holes in the grill panel are too high......Er oops, better graft in a repair, well no one will notice afterwards

More soon....ish

Great job on the grill. I hate working to make the tiny pieces with styrene, then gluing them together, without gluing your fingers. LOL.

Looks absolutely fantastic. I'm more than a little jealous of all your detail work.

Thank you sir, I don't enjoy tiny styrene parts either, and guess what......I glued myself to it twice!!

Thanks man, ah the detail......well I am a bit of a sucker for detail of course having the 1:1 parked outside helps/gives me no excuse!!

I have now grafted in some ali to plug my smeg up with the grill panel and an altogether more important update to follow shortly, just want to make sure it all goes according to plan before I post it up

Thank you sir, the gaping holes above the grill just had to go, and they have!!
The wonky "N" may stay as I only noticed it in the macro pictures......but I may change my mind yet

Kind words indeed, many thanks

watch this......(sorry about my daughter's squeal, seems she was excited about this too)



My "I want an open diff in this 1.9 Yota axle" plan worked!

Oh yes, I now have an open diff in my yota axle In the immortal words of Holly (RED DWARF) "I may take awhile, but I get there in the end"

This part of the build was slightly less than simple but worked out easier than it could have been...... Having been told by various sources that there wasn't anything that fitted and it couldn't be done etc I set my braincell a challenge....find a diff that could be convinced into fitting, gave it the I-pad and went to bed

After a while I found this


Original Yota spur gear on the right


Hmm, close enough for me hacked a bit off and fiddled around for a while


Then hacked at the shafts and stuffed it in


Simples

OK maybe not quite that simple so I'll do a how to in the Hints and Tips bit for anyone thats interested.

NICE

That's a ball diff, right? I've been thinking about using something like that but my logic said it would just slip when big forces would be applied. So how do they handle offroad?

Yep, it's an adjustable torque ball diff. My logic questioned that too, it also said there's only one way to find out.....suck it and see!

Not fitted it back on the truck yet so no real testing done yet but by hand I just hurt my fingers! Seems OK on the drill too so thinking it will be fine, only time and driving will tell for sure.

Great work on the ball diff. If it works I will get some proper factory units made...

If they can handle 12 turn mod motors putting 50,000odd RPM through them in 2WD racing buggies then I think they can handle a bit of off roading They're a very interesting design, the key is how tight you do up the center bolt. You can pretty much lock them out if you tighten it all the way up, but then you can back it off to a buttery-smooth differential action if that's what you want. Very versatile; not as outright strong as bevel or planetary diffs but they're plenty strong enough until you start talking about 1/5th scale and upwards and big powerplants.
