Default Range Rover Classic Hand Made

Hi,

The Range Rover Classic have always liked me. I have had 3. I also wanted to always have a scale model of this vehicle but I have not found anything on the market, so I've decided to build myself a scale model 1:10

I have no experience in this type of work but with the help of other experts who exhibited his works in the forums of crawling, I hope to be able to advance in my goal

I currently have the rather advanced project. I have used a forum in Spanish language to explain the process but now I will put it in this forum in the English language for English-speaking users. I hope you enjoy it.
This is my real vehicle that I want to play a scale 1:10



See you soon

I apologize for my English. I have used a translator

Hello,
Thanks "Tomsloat"
Following the method of work of "elaguila45" (present also in this forum) first of all I will build the body and will do it with 1 mm polystyrene and adhesive Tamiya Cement. When I'll have the body I will build the chassis and mechanical parts.
These are the material and the tools that I use


I will use as a reference the planes of blueprints that are quite real but not exact when I compare them with my 1:1. I will make the necessary corrections


To practice, I decided to first build a body side, and see difficulties meeting, and according to the result, the final build
I put a few pictures of the process








After various difficulties and errors I get a side, but the truth is that I just don't like. During the process I have found several things that can improve the procedure and the end can be better. The next phase will be to build the final side.

See you soon

Hi,
After having built the test side and have caught a bit of experience, I prepare to build the final side.
To cut them I marked the side from the plane profile, by clicking with a compass point polystyrene, placed under

The left side drawn on polystyrene

The two sides and the ribs already are cut

I begin to glue the ribs on the side

The horizontal rib on the front

Fixing the four independent central parts

Fixing the top side

Accommodations for locks

Boxes of locks

A completed rear lock

The four locks

Fuel tank cap

View of the side complete (pending to cut out the wheel arches)

The side placed on the plane of the Range Rover (to check measurements). Do looks good, no?

That's all for now. Until the next communication. Greetings to all

Hi,
After you have completed both sides I have built the back corners. It is a somewhat complicated work because the surfaces are very curved and in addition has to match the rear door. The process has been this:

The right corner in process

The two corners

I don't like how is the central section and the bottom and I modify them

Finishing the left corner

The finished left corner

Compared to the actual vehicle

More details


Finally joining the two sides start to take volume. Already I can imagine how it will be in 3D


Greetings, see you soon

Fantastic work! Can't wait to see it take shape - what chassis will you be using, or will that be scratch built too?

Hi,

Thanks for the comment. I will build the chassis from 2 mm laser-cut stainless steel. I'll show him I a little later

Hello,

The next step is the construction of the tailgate. Put it as a separate body module in order to contemplate the possibility of making it folding to allow quick access to the battery, which would be housed in the volume that forms the trunk. Building system is the ribs, similar to the sides of the body.Here you can see the process:





View general Assembly once placed the tailgate (though temporarily), lack of finish to adjust the levels of the upper part of the gate with the fins, once completed with putty the upper profile of the sides








This is all for now

Greetings to all

ˇEsto es fantástico! Tiene maravillosa habilidad con los plásticos. Solución creativa utilizando las "costillas". Estoy impresionado con la atención al detalle. ˇNo puedo esperar a ver la versión final!

Hi,

After a few days of having built the sides, I note that in left side surface is deformed and noticed the ribs, probably by the stress at the point of contact of the rib and the side. This problem has manifested itself in some other case, as they have commented on other participants in the Spanish Forum, working the polystyrene.

I have decided to correct it so I removed the side, I have placed more ribs, I lowered them 1 mm and I have collated a plate before the final plate that agree only on the top and bottom ends. After these operations, the side has been good and I hope that the problem will not be repeated. On the right side, I have not done this correction because, despite the time that has elapsed since its construction, the deformations are not noticeable. I put photos of the process

I dismount the left side


I add more ribs


I put the new inset plate


I put the back door


The correction is complete. The side now has no surface deformation



Best regards
