It's got that hot weather vibe right?

It's definitely on track... I'll sort  chassis tomorrow and think a bit more about canvas and sides... ask around for scorpion tank axles and caps! bounce

Well! I ran into problems... the roof on the rear bed....




was too phreeken low for a fella to sit in  Evil or Very Mad  No  Rolling Eyes ... FAIL!!

So I had to get even more 'A-team' on it... but it all worked out rather well when I had the idea to use the only bit of the Land Rover I had left... the dashboard and footwell section to mount upsaide down on top of the rear seats to lift the roofline mounting...and which is now the rear bulkhead with gauges and overhead storage!! Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil

What's really cool is that I have now actually used every single panel of the entire Land Rover.. Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  affraid . I just neeed to mount the rear gate as a number plate section... which it is anyway!

I'll try and get some threaded bar tomorrow to sort out the axles so that the wheels sit wider and then sort out the canopy but in terms of theTruck.. Im very pleased to say it's complete apart from aceesorising to cover up the bits that need ccovering up.... but that's allowed at the Slackademy Motorverks.. and then it's diorama photoshoot time Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil

and then onto the Aerosan!! affraid  affraid


Here we go for now!











I think that's a Truck..... with easily removable scoutbike..(to be repaired ASAP!).. and I've got some LEDs coming for the front and cabin lighting... Laughing  Cool

  the 'SEMT-4HQ' to be precise!! clown

Heh bud, that's a good shout... I was going to cover up with a collapsed dinghy and oars etc.. but your idea might be better... I'll have a look. .. cheers for the idea... always appreciated! Twisted Evil

It really is all coming together nicely now slackers!, Personally, I think the roof looks better, and more accurate Very Happy . I think also Rossy could be on to winner, but that's your call mate.
Cannot wait to see more on this inspiring vehicle! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

The teaser you set me on chat last night is still bending my brain on your latest custom, but I will stick at it! bounce bounce bounce

Also it doesn't look like you will have too much space for a whole wheel under there so perhaps just cut 1 wheel down middle and use half on each side?

Already had a lok at that Shocked problem is I'll be cutting into too much of the truck so I think I'll cover the area with some accessories instead and keep the vehicle as intact as possible! Cheers for the ideas tho' always appreciated old chap! Twisted Evil

Enjoying the enjoyment of the enjoying...er...love the vehicle too!!!

I like Ross's Idea, but if that didn't work I was wondering if you could keep the axle and tires under the cab like in one of your early pics. Axle under cab and under bonnet in front. scratch

Some other ideas for that area might be mount some jerry cans under the cab, or a gas tank like in some of the 1:1 vehicles(?)

Did you say you were thinking of adding scorpion tracks in the back? Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Love the spare tire on top and bike on the back! Idea Idea Idea

cheers cheers cheers

Oh HELL YES.


You should put plans up as this is something Palitoy SHOULD have done themselves!
Beautiful and Does look to work 40s through to Now really. That in itself is a Credit to you. Doesnt limit it to an era is always a Hard part with a vehicle build as they tend to be because of an era.

Inspired.
