Beautifully done noob, love the pizza cutters! What did you use to cut the tires and what did you glue them back together with?

A little detailing for the undercarriage. Exhaust and fuel tank. Waste of time really. Nobody cares what's underneath the body.

What? No brake lines? No catalytic converter?

Great job man, I love the way it looks with the narrow tires and all the detail work. Is the shackle going to hit exhaust the way its ran or is there more room than what it appears in that pic?

I poked them with my hobby knife then used lexan scissors to cut. They were reattached with medium CA glue then reinforced inside with black, rubberized CA.

Thank you. Doesn't hit, optical delusion.

Precisely. Take that environment.

I made a .gif to show the functioning bits. Enjoy.


I'll post the remaining pictures once they upload and will hopefully get a video made soon.

One of these days, this thing will be cool. I guess it's a work in progress. Needs more blue.

Only blue could save it.




Printed out a little brochure.










Like I said before, I had no intention of going wild on the engine bits. By this point I kinda checked out on the build.

Absolutely one of the finest builds I've ever seen!
I loved the .gif, but why don't the wipers work or the gas cap open? Huh? Huh? What a slacker.

I've been holding my applause till it's finished - I'm not sure if you have anything else planned but I can't wait any longer. Unfortunately I've hit a bit of a snag seeing as there is no applause smiley. You'll have to settle for some thumbs-ups instead.



Seriously - it's adorable and goofy and weird and I absolutely love it. All the hard work really shows, every little detail speaks to the amount of care put into this build. Wonderful work, it's so great to see it all wrapped up.

Thank you. The wipers do work and the gas cap opens if I snap it off.

This one is as done as it's going to get. Just waiting on the permanent license plates from Krawler Konceptz.

Thank you very much. I hope it's been as fun to watch as it has been to build.

The weather looks good today, I think a trip to Smiggin's Folly for a video is in order.

Uncle Albert and Pappy Smiggin took the Gipsy to Smiggin's Folly for a drive today. He had a blast pushing the limits of old fake Land Rover (it really didn't take much). There is practically zero suspension travel but that makes it interesting. In true n00b fashion, all show and no go.
