Very nice progress in this build!

I know what it's like to re-do body parts over and over to get them right. I don't know how many molds i made, reshaped, reshaped again and even scrapped all together until i was satisfied.

As the saying goes, "if it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!"

Don't panic, this is a "mini mine" and as such will get a set like the "mine" pictured in the first post

Thanks man, had to be done didn't it... These aren't the first parts to be remade and probably won't be the last either but if it don't look right it looks

Thank you sir, I'm sure you do know what it's like, I've seen your yota
and yes if it's worth doing........ well I wouldn't waste my time otherwise

No more done yet, apparently there's some holiday thing looming!!

My deepest respect for your work here. Its a build that I will follow for sure, and will be disappointed that I do not have the skills nor the patience for such a work!

It's the one on the 1:1 (see first post) It came off my IIa. I've only seen a couple of others with the same style and they were both IIa's so I guess it was an option for lwb's in the late 60's

Lol, be careful, if you buy a 1.1 you may end up with Landroveritis!
Keep hold of your jaw too......I'm planning on using correct materials as much as possible with this build

No update yet, no work done on it! Too many Christmas visitors and as a lot of the build is done in the guest room, I had to put it all away for the duration (wife's rule but makes good sense to obey!!) Will get back to it after our third christmas day is over thanks for your patience

Careful, liking Landy's can become a nasty habit!

OK I know it's been a while but general life stuff just gets in the way sometimes.... I have only just got the little one out again after the Christmas extended break, people kept insisting on staying in my hobby room (or the guest room as my wife likes to call it!!).

I have managed to get a bit done tho, it may not look like much but with all the "failed" bits before I get parts I will use it still takes a ridiculous amount of time..... enough with excuses and onto some pics

Light buckets for side/brake lights etc.. start with some brass tube


Heat and hit (we know I like to hit stuff )


Drill the centre and cut to length using a homemade jig


X 10


Corner capping for lower rear body, using the the rear wing former and some ali (drilled for the light position and annealed)


Attach to former and hit


Trim and file to shape


Fit to body along with light buckets




Also made a start on the door handles, just need some tiny springs now
