1/72 Land Rover...

  • 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...

  • Interesting build, working on something a little 'different' and small like this is a lot of fun.

    Good luck with it!

    Doc.

    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...  ;D
    Her the result, the left is with tread and the right is stock (after sand paper.


    And here one tire done, 4 more to go...

  • Looking good!! Great detail!

    I bet you build, or built 1/72 aircraft right?

    Doc.

  • 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

    Steve.

  • Here I glued the tires, and front bumper.
