Morris Moke (aka mini-moke)
Posted by aussiemuscle308 on Monday, October 15, 2018 4:13 AM

I 3D printed this Mini Moke. this is a solid lump of PLA with no engine or chassis detail. thanks to its simple and straight lines, its easy for the printer to put this one out. It's next to a Revell Dodge Charger chassis to give an idea of size.

No chassis detail

I painted it Mission Brown, but i didn't like it, so i repainted it in a sky blue. the seats were brush painted in flat black and the chrome lights were hit with a molotov pen before i went over the red and amber lights with tamiya clear tints.

Very cool. The Mini Moke looks great, excellent likeness.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

I made some suspension from brass stock. I also made a spare wheel mount.

Finally got it standing on its wheels

I made the window frame from square stock and a clear sheet windscreen. I found a mirror and steering wheel in my spares box.

Superb! We had hundreds tearing round here in the day, when the Morris plant at Oxford started turning them out, just 20 miles from here!

Of course they were also made/built on licence all over the place afterwards, because with our climate here in the UK, they didn't sell well.

G'day, aussiemuscle.  Thanx for showing us your skills in 3D printing and how the techmology can be used in our hobby.  The Moke looks the part, and your colour suits it well. Are you doing some bumpers for it?

I remember I hired one in Noosa Heads, Qld, about 40 something years ago, it was tarted up 'tropical' with a striped canvas roof, with fringes on the sides.  Great driving vision, of course.  Cheers.
