1/72 Land Rover...
Posted by Brizio on Thursday, January 10, 2013 3:51 PM

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.

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...  ;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?

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.

Wow! There is no way I could build a model that small. My eyes have trouble seeing the 1/24th and 1/25th scale kits. Bravo! I'll be watchin this one for sure. Great job!

Little progress. The interior is almost done now, add seats, steering wheel, and the side rails on the back.

Thank you Michael! It is a challenge also for my eyes too, also for my hand to handle all this small stuff... :) The other day I almost step on the chassis... :D

Thank you JM485, It is a pretty challenge, and probably in the carpet I have enough part for build another one... :) But it is also a lot of fun, building something different.
