When you say nut, do you mean the things holding it together or me?? either way, yes!!

Did this quick video.... turn the volume up as I tried to do a commentary. sorry it's a bit rough but was one shot and un-edited. Oh and when I said "paint roller" I meant wall paper roller!!

Hope it helps/makes sense......


Still need to press a bonnet so will do that in detail soon...

Have you tried annealing the aluminum around the wheel well vs cutting (approx 6:10) ? It really looks like it could be streched enough to complete the lip but may take a wood roller or something firmer to get it there. Thanks for posting the vid. so fun to watch this sort of thing in action. Cheers!

As I said in the video, I was making a rough panel at stupid speed to show method. I took more time with the panels that went on the build and worked the wheel arches alot more with the roller (which is a wooden one). With the ali only being 0.5mm there is no need to aneal and could damage the MDF former so didn't bother.

great video!! It was a fun video to watch I built the roof for my brass/copper 5 ton much in the same way except I was using alot thicker material so I had no other choice, but to anneal it to make the bends. I think I may use some aluminum for a build it looks like alot of fun...

from the vid, "a little brute force never did an harm" love it. looks like the hardest part really is making the wood bucks. once you've got them knocking out a body should be the easy part.

Thanks RCJEEPBUILDER, Looked at your 5 ton.... WOW that is one astonashing piece of work

hairba11, yep, your bang on (excuse the pun ) to be honest making the formers ain't that hard....just time consuming. Like many other things, it's all in the prep

Quick update now, done the door tops....


You can see the "sandwich" here. On the old skool 1:1's you can remove the top half of the door with two nuts, handy on a hot day


Just the bonnet to make now and I'm done with the main panels....


Thanks for watching

Thanks Tom, here's a bit more.....

Made a start on the bonnet today and as I hadn't done anything on it, you get to see the whole job

Started out with a lump of MDF a bit larger than the bonnet

After a 3 hours of cutting, milling and sanding, ended up with this...


With more MDF and some glue made a simple frame to support the Milliput two part epoxy putty....


Mixed the putty, laid it into the frame, covered it in cling film (to prevent sticking) and firmly pressed the former into it...


After checking the mould and filling the odd gap, repressing etc, wiggled the former in the mould to create a uniform gap large enough to let the ali sheet in. Removed the former and cling film....


Now all I can do is wait for it to set, tomorrow i'll press the panel. Fingers crossed it will work!!!

Pressed the bonnet this morning.... this is how it went...

Partially formed the ali


Placed in mould and clamped it in.


Teased it out, still needs some tidying up but not bad me thinks!!..


Grabbed some spare wheels, (yes they are horribly wrong, still not bought the 1.55's yet ) balanced all the bits....


My nice postman also brought me these...


M1 x 5 nuts and bolts which will be used on the hinges and anywhere else they will be visible, they are fiddly little suckers but I think the look is worth the agro

This has to be the best RC landrover body i've ever seen.
What axles are you going to use
