I had this kit from quite a while, I received it so without instructions, and after searching a little bit I think it came out from a old Airfix "Bristol Bloodhound", the kit has also a missile on a trailer, but I have only the Land Rover. I like only Jeep, so I will not build this as land Rover, but I will build the Spanish made one, called Santana Ligero 88. That was made in Spain from Santana Motors.Here the kit...
Current project - Renault 16
Interesting build, working on something a little 'different' and small like this is a lot of fun.
Good luck with it!
Agree! Thank you!
Here the comparison from the "old" body side and the new.And here the chassis, it is long almost 2 inches.
I did a little progress too... The tires had some molding issue, so when I sand paper them, they were slick, not the kind of tire you want put on a 4x4... ;D My eyes are not happy with my decision to cut the tread on them... ;DHer the result, the left is with tread and the right is stock (after sand paper.And here one tire done, 4 more to go...
The diesel engine. For dimension reference it is small than a lady bug... :)
Here the chassis almost done.
Looking good!! Great detail!
I bet you build, or built 1/72 aircraft right?
Thank you Doc! I built probably 3 aircraf in total, and this 15-20 years ago... :-)
Here a test fit between body and chassis, and I reshaped the front grille, adding the grille.
I was thinking... Instead make the stock Santana, like the one in the picture above, that it is pretty ugly, to make the one in the picture below, with a 106 mm rifle... :)
G'day Brizio. This looks like being an interesting build to follow, the kit is something I haven't seen before, and the parts are all so TINY! Best of luck with this one. Cheers
Here I glued the tires, and front bumper.
Here a picture from the back, with some interior work done, gas, brake and clutch pedals, hand brake lever, gear stick, 4wd lever and block lever.
