    2020’s pretty messed up so let’s mess up a Land Rover.

    Ages ago the German Tuning House posted this pic on their page.

    Pretty certain it’s photoshop but cool all the same. Dready built one for UK Andy and it sold earlier in the year on eBay. Unfortunately I was the runner up bidder so off to a new life it went.

    Ive regretted not trying harder to win it and then by chance I picked up a cheap unused body.
    This pics been doing the rounds on instagram

    Thanks to my Covid kid I’ve got a few days off so hopefully I’ll get somewhere this week.

    Thanks, it’s had a pass of filler and hopefully tomorrow it’ll see some paint. Just need to source a windscreen as mines missing and then sort the interior out.

    Looks great, sort of like one of those weird little Russian 4×4 vans; although just like if this was real – the driver will need some severe surgery to fit in it!

    It does look like the Russian trucks. It’ll probably be an amputee as it looks tight.

    already looks like it

    Thanks, I was surprised at how quickly it took shape.

    Update time, this body was cheap and I’m guessing the reason was the missing windshield. I know someone with an unused body but he let me down as usual so it’s styrene time.

    Annoyingly I waited for a week for him to get back to me and he didn’t. This was less than an hour to do. Lesson learned, just needs window rubbers and it should be good.

    More soon

    Sooo… is it short wheelbase, or is it long wheelbase?!? Love it either way, although I’ll love it more if it’s short wheelbase.

    Thanks, it’s the stock 275mm wheelbase which is short for me but still a bit long for you.

    I’m a bit slow on all things rc but I did manage a little bit today.
    Rear door handle because strangely it’s missing.

    The hinges have always bugged me. Originally I was just going to shave them down a bit but me being me added a little detail.

    The fuel cap has also been a annoyance to me and was the one thing I didn’t do on the last D90 build.

    More soon hopefully.

    So, with everything North of the M25 getting snow it’s been dry but very cold today.
    Green was the colour I had in mind but I had the feeling it wouldn’t do so a quick lockdown trip to Halfords to get blue.

    Im not sure the bumpers are staying so I’m going to order the original ones.
