Nice work! can't believe I missed this, mind you I don't often venture from the Agricultural section... keep it up it's really really good work!
one thing, I find etch primer sucks, can't get it to stick, and avoid brass or copper with ali, Electrolosys happens even at scale!!

Thank you sir, I know what you mean about missing stuff.....too many good things to look at in here

Even using etch primer, prep is the key. Try using MEK before you prime
As for electrolysis, bloomin' hope not.....can't imagine why I would pass an electric current through the body did you mean galvanic corrosion?

Not that that is much of a problem either, the only brass is the door frames (steel on the 1:1) and the spare wheel carrier (also steel) and bonded so don't touch each other, then painted to keep moisture out. Even if it did corrode, it would be in the correct place



No update as yet, er, still fixing the mistake I noticed earlier

My mistake is now fixed did you wonder what it was? If you did, this is for you

First the real back door


Now the model


Did anyone spot it? (you can ignore the missing door lock, extra hole for door lock, "DO NOT SLAM", weathering and the like (all of which will be "sorted" in due course))

It was the door handle being at the wrong height quite how I managed that in the first place remains a mystery, being a halfwit probably and how I didn't notice before now deludes me, still being a halfwit I guess but as fate has farted in my face once more, it's time to fix it

There we are....fixed


Doh, missed the bit in the middle O.K first I removed the handle mechanism


Then made a "copy" hole and a "filler" hole


Extended the old hole and added the "copy" behind in the correct place


Cut the "filler" roughly to size and bonded it in the hole and onto the "copy"


Did some filling and slapped it all back together


The End

Now I can get back to where I was before I noticed my little mistake....umm.....now what was next

Huge mistake. You should be ashamed of yourself. Horrible I say!

Thank you sir, I wish I had more patience to do this (which may well explain the lack of any updates recently ).

thank you too sir, glad you like

Fingers crossed I will be able to make some progress soon, I have a shiny new tool and a trip to a Land Rover show to spur me along, oh and a reward build for when I eventually finish this darn thing!

This build is way too cool not to finish. So get it done, and post some nice vids of it, for us.

Don't panic it will get finished, my wife imposed a "one build at a time" rule (which is quite sensible really) so I can't do my reward build (which I already have ) until this one is done and yes, nice pictures and video will follow

You will know that better than most sir! And you are quite right, I will not give up, I'm just finding hard to find time and mood coinciding but I have a few days off work soon and planning on making the most of it

Hello again.
Now back to this fantastic foro.Hace much since I last saw your LR and I see with joy that even-NO-term construction, so we spend most entertaining moments.
And learn new things, like the wheel support that will be copied as soon as possible.
In my 90, the wheel threatened to break the plastic hinges.
Now cambiare by a metal-and broke 2 - and with the help of this curious media.
I can finally remove the front wheel, the driver is tired of leaving the road to see only a large piece of rubber.

It is a great asset to a single model once
. It's terrible to have 3 on the table and the three new pieces littering and calling on Ebay.
Greetings.

They're pre-dented but trust me, I will be careful

Greetings my friend I am glad your driver can see now! mine will be happy to see too, I never liked the wheel on the bonnet - too heavy! Yes building only one model at a time is tidier

Small update

I finally found some spare time to spend on this old thing, not much done really but the outside of the body is almost there. Just paint (Actual Nato paint this time) and stickers to go

Window seals (which still need some tidying up)


And the sliding half of the front door windows (yep, they slide )


Apologies for the poor picture quality!
