    The wheel and tire combo looks great, stance is perfect. It looks so true to the Rovers I see around here, moderate lift, agressive tire, stock wheels and dents as decoration... love it!

    I sure hope so. It's fun to replicate a real truck.

    All it took was the desire to destroy something.

    I touched it pretty hard with the rock.

    Thanks Kev, I'm really trying to stay true to the example I found on the web. So far, I'm pleased.

    So here we are, the day of colour. Accurate Ardennes Green Metallic straight from the can.





    It's a very rich, dark tone of green, and looks spectacular in the outdoors. Since I'm going for weathered and abused, I'll probably skip the automotive clear coat, or should I? Help!

    Printed up James Knight's RTT 102% larger than his model to fit this giant beast, as my reference had one too.

    Nice color! And paint on it really shows the dents. I would strongly recommend clear coat before weathering. Seal the color coat in to accept weathering on top. Easier to erase mistakes.

    It's been awhile since I've caught up with this Build... WOW!!! Matt, you may be almost USED to work at this level, but it always blows my Bloody Mind!!!!
    At some point, I'd love to get one of these Bodies. I like the old Range Rovers. I even had a 1:1 version, briefly... It had the older 3.5L Carbureted Motor, and was a total POS!!!! I had an unhealthy attraction to it... but could NEVER get it to run right.
    And I was ASE Master Tech Certified in CARBURETION!!!! I'm certain that the Lucas Electronics DIDN'T help either.
    An RC version might be the better way to go, especially at my age!!

    Looking forward to MORE!

    What about things like chipped paint? Salt first then clear and then attack those spots where the clear didn’t hit maybe? Sorry - always wanted to try weathering, but so many do it so differently. Anyone here ever tried any of the chipping mediums?
