Part 3 shows a few of the techniques I used to paint and weather this vehicle.
I've also included some finished details of the personal touches I've incorporated (with more information and detail photographs in the dedicated thread in the Builds section of the forum) - and while I do not consider this a 'true scale' build in the traditional sense (not least with Ozzy behind the wheel) - it's about as close as I feel I can realistically achieve while having the vehicle remain robust and drivable... that said, I fear I'm going to need to fit a roll-cage of some sort to protect the driver and windscreen/door-tops in the event of a roll-over on more technical terrain.
Some of these build and weathering techniques are refinements of those I've used before during other builds in my showroom, and others (such as the wooden deck for the load-bay) are new to me - but either way I can't recall ever trying to include quite so many scale and realistic details in a single vehicle!
What has been most rewarding is to scratch build a full interior for an open vehicle which I can now fill with a myriad of scale accessories, while having the vehicle not only as a runner, but with a full LED lighting set (10 individual lamps), a working winch, and twin 6-cell stick-pack batteries that remain hidden from view.
