Amazing LRDG truck! It reminds me of the 1:35 kits I would see at the hobby shop as a kid! Superb work!

Loving seeing this again Tony! I remember watching the build elsewhere.. You should post your WIP shots to show how you did it.

He's right!! This project deserves a 2nd look, and I'm sure there are people on this forum who maybe haven't
seen your other fabulous vehicles too...time for some re-posting!

Started off with the front end using some mdf and some joist ends laminated together, and shaped with the sander:



Built up the front and a rear chassis and side panels, starting to shape up now:





built up the front grille in plasticard:



Made the rear interior:



Bit more detailing on the side for the radio and radio antennae:



first coat of primer to seal the wood:



Wheels on and detailing:
