Thanks! The little silver fasteners? They are the heads of straight pins that I nipped off. All of the hinges are held on with them too.

Wow, thank you! Yep, all of the electronics and battery will be under the seat. That leaves the engine bay open for a scale Toyota motor

The last fiddly bits I need to invent are the hood latches. Maybe I'll tinker tonight and post my results. Thanks following along everyone.

Where's the mosquito for size reference?

Is your cutting board 1 x 1cm squares or 1/2 x 1/2in? Either way, the tiny parts are great man!

Correct but I guess they'd be called bonnet hold downs since its British.

Good idea. I have some around here too. Maybe I'll give them a try.


Not a lot to show for it but these took 2 hours to make.

Back to this fake Land Rover.

I was never really satisfied with how the R3 transmission and transfer case were situated so I pulled them out and reconfigured. I swapped in a good old fashioned Axial transmission first. Then I flipped the transfer case and made a new crossmember. Gained a lot of clearance as a bonus.



Oh yes, lots of room for scale motor now!




I'm chuffed right down to my Gulliver. This is all the filler that the body required after the initial shot of primer.
