    Cheers! I am really liking the look of it too! very unique!

    Okay time for an update!

    I have been doing a lot of work on bits and pieces for this build, trying to design and 3d print some useful parts for the chassis etc as I go...

    So I made up some door cards and incorporated the window frame so they slot straight into the body...





    Added some gauges and used some clear paint in a puddle to get a glass effect...



    I am liking how the interior is shaping up!



    So I went over to the LHS and picked up a RTR Deadbolt, then proceeded to chuck out all of these extra bits....



    Then added some fruit to it!



    I needed a CMS mount, so I decided to draw up and print one out, it came out great, plenty strong enough for the application... I'll probably revise the design and add some body mounts and bumper brackets to it... I also have some black material for the printer on the way....



    I finished correcting the body and got the final paint color on, I am in love with this color!



    Thats how the truck sits at the moment.... plenty more to be done but it is all coming together slowly I think!


    Oh... I also spent some time on some new axle housings...... (A LOT of time...Zzzzz)




    Thats all for now! Really enjoying this build!

    Yeah, you should be pretty chuffed, right in your Gulliver. Nicely done.

    Cheers, fiddly bits are the best bits!

    Ok, Updates!

    So I spent a lot of time on the axle housings and got them to a workable state, I think there is more work to be done but I can at least prototype them now....









    I decided to have a crack at brass fabrication on this build, a first time for me and I am very glad I had a go! Thanks to Mr Delux for a master class on brass works!

    Started with the bull bar...





    Then moved on to the silly high canopy frame for the back!











    Thats all for now! still plenty of work to do!

    Thanks! I am learning a few new tricks on this one!

    Yeah it's mandatory over here to have a bull bar on just about everything! I even had one on my bike as a kid!

    I like brass... I want to make everything out of brass now...

    Tiny update, I got the prototype axle housings finished up and also installed some cat-levers for proper ute like action!





    The wheels are tucked in much better now I think, I'll lower the whole shebang around 10mm to make it even more scale looking....





    Hopefully all these custom chassis bits actually work ok and don't immediately explode! Testing will tell...

    Update time!

    I starter cracking on with the interior detailing, starting with some tiny knobs!





    These trucks were autos... so 3-on-the-tree installed!

    Then I got to work on the super plush split fold front seats!



    The seats kept falling out so I realised I needed a floor....







    My least favorite part of a project is figuring out how to mount the body, I had a think and designed up some clips... we will see how they turn out, they will be hidden by the tub on the finished truck...





    Well thats all for now!

    Looks great! I also hate trying to figure out how to mount the body. What you came up with looks pretty good though.
