No worries. Would have been epic if you had.

The glass is old CD cases. Never use CD anymore, and they where spares anyway. The sidings of CD cases have some nice texturing sometimes.
Ah yes, good material use.

I actually went back to look for the reference pic, and it certainly looks the part, very nicely done scratchbuild

If I may, and if it adds, maybe the front suspension, when compared with the photo, looks a bit too wide - I doesn't look bad, just different from the ref, and I bring it up without knowing how close to that particular model you want to get.-

Very nice! I love that it has working bits.

So how did you get the nice curves on the hood and fenders?

@ graven. Thank you, and that means a great deal to me from the Father-in-law.

@ Dr. H Thank you.

@ Zogg. Thank you sir, and welcome. As to the curves. Two methods employed. firstly for the hood and the front of the fenders, I used 1mm PC and heated it with a blowtorch, then quickly formed the shape I wanted. I think I used a pencil as a former. I had to get inventive with the side of the fender as that would be a very difficult bend, with the front one as well, so I actually cut a pc tube into quarters, after I bent it to shape, then glued a side on to the round and to the top and front bit. Bit of sanding and a lick of paint and there she blows... Hope that helps, if not please ask.

But C&C? Hmmm, give me a minute. Well... I know. Windshield wipers that actually work Kidding, mostly. It really is phenomenal.

And what materials for the canvas? Looks perfect.

Not where I should be

Thank you so much guys.
@ Theo, nice to see you dude.
@ Red.I cheat.Here is the very bad tutorial I showed on my other blog.

I would add some notes here.

1) You should only attempt this in a very clear open space.
2) This is one of those for ADULTS only.
3) This is DANGEROUS. Only attempt this if you are sober and feel competent to do so.
4) DO NOT set the plastic on fire. You only need to gentle heat it, if it catches fire it gives off very nasty fumes.

OK I use thin plasticard, I use this technique on all PC upto 2mm thickness, this is how I create the curves I have used for instance on the front wings of the Landrover. But for the canvas I use the really thin stuff. Almost paper thin.

Equipement:
Foreceps or Pliers.
Chef's blowtorch.
Bucket of water.(for safety. Have this handy and if all else fails, dump it in the bucket quick.)

Firstly get a hold of your material. Foreceps are good for this though pliers would be OK.


Light your blowtorch, get a firm grip of your foreceps, and quickly pass the torch across the material. Dont wag it about, you will quickly get the idea. It only takes a second and the material warps all over the place.


Now if you want a piece for a very specific spot, I glue it in place first using superglue, then apply the heat you end up with this.


And if you take your time and build a frame then heat the PC and let gravity do it's thing, you can form more complex shapes.


In this last one you also have the fenders formed by this method. Also note the rolled canvas. I glued a rod to the trailing edge of the PC and holding it and rotating, with the weight of the PC gentle heated it, it gradually rolled up nicely.


I personally will "mould" the shape I want with my fingers, this is not recommended, you can burn yourself easily, but you can also manipulate the material with pliers and, as I said let gravity work for you. You will often have to use a little more material than strictly necessary, and trim it to get the finer edges.

I hope this helps, it is not a technique for everyone, and should only be used if confident, but it is easy and the effects speak for themselves I hope.

Next up Landy final shoot, I hope.

Holy Moley! I can't argue with the results. They are great. It is almost how glassblowers work. It alarms me a little bit though.

I thought you rolled out gray stuff or Fimo or something like that and shaped that. Something less dangerous.

The technique certainly gives the results thats for sure.

I've been looking for ways of doing tarpaulins for a while, I might try with a heatgun tho, less chance of fire but more chance of things getting blown around.

The defender is awesome.

Another option for creating tarpaulin is tissue and PVA.

Thanks guys. It is a bit dangerous, but worth the result, I have tried to get putty thin enough but it never works out for me. Ruglud's method is great for tarps like he has there, and I have seen some of his work which is just amazing. My situation was more of a "I want to remove it multiple times etc." type thing, and needed something a little more robust.

Well here is the finished Landy.










Thank you for your support and thoughts. I would love to know what you think of it now. It is off to my friend.
As I touched on before, this is actually modeled on the Queens own Land Rover she was using in the 50's on Balmoral estate here in Scotland, My friends father purchased the vehicle from the estate and it was restored to it's full glory and is now in a museum. He has a couple pictures, and is very proud of his connection, he was visiting one day and saw one of my ork trukkz and asked if I could do a Landy for him, here we are 4 weeks later. Delivery tomorrow. No charge, honoured to do it.
