Looks great!! Loving the Union jack/flag roof!! The exo-cage and rack is cool and it all looks sooo scale!! Who is your driver?


Some character from the modern Battlestar Galactica? Got him of Amazon.com.
I like his attitude... Heh...

Cheers,
Skottoman

i was going to buy one of those bodies for my millitary defender i am building but opted for a kamtec one instead .. i thing i might change my mind after looking at the chineese body again . the armyversion doesnt have doors and needs an interior and roll cage ... dang .. more money spent .. :lol:
52 rc cars -- really out of room now .. gotta stop soon ! . ;)

They're Mud Pluggers.
All info here...

Got the lights installed, winch is working, rear bumper and rubber mud flaps added, and the body mounted. What a pain! Very tough to stuff all wires/battery under the interior!
Getting close to the end though!

That is one cool project and amazing detailings. You must have spend some serious money and time on the project. I am not British, but the Union Jack does look nice on roof top and that yellow just reminds me of the Camel Trophy race.

That is something special for sure. The union jack is a work of art. The whole land rover is a work of art!

What is that light blue masking tape you used to create the straight lines for the union jack? Cannot see any paint running at all.

Thanks! Yes, the Union Jack turned out very nice!

The tape is 3M BLUE 2080EL (Edge lock)
Best masking I've tried for large areas. Sometimes leaves a little residue, but can be tacked off with another piece of tape.
Cheers,
Skottoman

That's a great build and the end result is brilliant! Could easily be mistaken for the real thing in the right photo.

I actually have moved my battery to the rear where the plastic box was. I placed the receiver and ESC on the plate in the center of the chassis.
Clears the interior just fine, but I do think it's bad that I have to take the body off (Which is hard to put on) to change batteries...

CHeers,

The lights were just parts from a cheap $12 ebay lighting kit. To mount the led's I just drilled holes and glued them in place.Cheers,Skottoman

I missed this how? WOW! Very nice for a Landie... how do the RC4WD chassis drive over say a High lift? I did not like how hard the 3 speed was to drive at all..
