  1. Thanks Slusher Got the all panels painted and body together, the kit flares are too big so i'll have to modify them a bit. Theres still a fair way to go, the canopy hasn't been made yet and the brush rails require flares on to work out the right shape. Heres where i'm at: More updates soon.
  2. Thanks guys, Been a little while as I'm waiting on some parts and I accidently bought another 1:1 project car which i will need to make a model of later. Got a start on the body, filled in the sunroof and primered. Was thinking of how to make the snorkel and have it fit the fender nicely so i used masking tape and a blob of car filler. Once set i can file it to shape and it will fit to the gaurd nicely (its ugly now but it will be heavily sanded down. Got the correct rims from fireball modelworks (excellent quality) , just waiting on tyres. If the weather is good hoping to have some colour on the body tomorrow 🤞
  3. that colour is wicked, nice work
  4. Bullbar is finished, just needs the winch hook, number plate and antennas added. Roof rack just needs the awning to complete it. Note: glue for the clear lenses is still wet, will be clear when its dry.
  5. Thanks for the comments. Espo- the UHF antennas are mounted on brackets that clamp on the hoops of the bullbar. They have a large spring at the base so when you hit things like branches the can move and spring back. Mattilacken- I will keep that in mind for the next one. 2mm for the bullbar and 2.4mm for the towbar would be right scale thickness for this. I used leftover sprue/runners which are 3mm. Admittedly they are noticibly thicker looking but for this build it will be close enough. I have a 4 Runner and Pajero to do after this so i will have a few more bullbars to make.
