Default Scratch built Aluminum Series III Land Rover...New Pictures!!

Well after starting this "mini mine" in 1998 and for various reasons, shelving the build in 2002, I've decided it's about time I finished it...!!

This is the real one it's based on....

How far I got when it was shelved....

Before I go on I should point out that the wheels and tires will not be on the finished product. These will be changed for 1.55's on narrower axles so for the time being, please ignore the ones on it at the moment...(thanks )

The chassis is a Tamiya Bruiser, which back in the day was the closest to the real thing that was available. The body is mainly 0.5mm aluminum sheet although the bulkhead is 1mm (part of an old Land Rover door)

Sadly I lost all the plans I had originally drawn so did a couple of quick sketches in order to make some formers for the metal work...

Made up some formers out of MDF...

Bent some metal and cut some holes...

In this pic its all balancing with a finger holding the side on, just to get the Idea

I will assemble the roof soon and then turn my attention to doors and bonnet...
