While my Dingo, will still be a Dingo no matter how hard i try to disguise it I decided to build something new. As I'm more or less addicted to purpose build, No-nonsense vehicles I decided to go for a Pinzgauer 710K. I'll probably drive it on my SCX (will need a GCM motor mount), but perhaps I'll build it on another chassis (including Portalaxles)
Anyway, enough talking, not much progress, but the beginning is there:
This will be cool. :popcorn:
Thanks alot Guys!
Small nosejob this afternoon (had to get rid of those large holes)
This is gonna be good! Like it so far.
Very excited to see all of these heavy builds popping up
Love these boxy builds. Keep it up!

Still struggling though, with how i'm gonna make the appearance of the vehicle. Dunno if I'll make a dumped OD army vehicle, or one that has been restored by it's new owners and some changes have been made to it to take it on a long traveltrip. I tend to to the last as it gives me some more freedom to choose a colour and work on the interior.
