    Cargo doors? The sides that enclose the rear bed or am I missing something?

    Encasing the whole thing would make for a nice pick up bed on the back? Or would you like it hinged? If you want it hinged you can get piano hinges from B&Q, cuT them to length and make metal or plastic bed sides.

    A fake crane would be quite cool but don’t know how it would fare in a roll over. Alternatively just leave it completely flat and maybe add a crane at a later point?

    I’ve got some tiny rc plane hinges which might work perfectly for this.
    I’m back on Friday and can pop a pick up if your interested.
    A few people have used them on here for bonnet hinges successfully.

    There are several different versions of the stolly ,an engineering one with the crane ,another one with crane and the one in the first picture ,which I am doing (yes a chance I could add crane at later date will see how it goes but not to fussed about that ) , don’t no if the sides will open yet its all down to the strength in the side doors and rear bed don’t want it to snap in half on its first roll ,I plan to have the electrics in the back as well, covered up with a canvas like this

    That is looking real sweet Steve. I don’t suppose its going to float too by any chance? I suppose it could happen if you fill all the voids with expanding foam once your finished. Would make a great pic or vid, coming out o f the sea through the waves lol.

    I feel sick with envy. Great idea to do one of these in the first place and You’ve really captured the proportions nicely. Can’t wait to see it finished!

    Wow fantastic progress Steve.

    Try this for glueing the styrene it’s a lot cheaper and works really well.
