It's me again.
Truly a master piece happening.
Coming Along Fantastic dag.

Thanks man!My man! This is just out of my world!! I just picked up my eyes off the floor.
Thank you! Not too many layers left now thankfully!So many rivets, so many beautiful details.
This build already has multiple layers of awesomeness and there is still more to come.
Ah yes, I remember following that and thinking it didn't look fun. Does look awesome though so worth it in the end. I'm enjoying the tiny sprues of scale bolts I found too. And thanks.Ah rivets... I hand punched about 300 or so when I did the steam Jeep. Not fun. Beautiful job on this one sir, destined for greatness.
Haha, love making the little pieces! Just have to be careful not to break them...I have no idea how you make such clean, precise little pieces! Keep it coming, really enjoying seeing this progress.
Oh yeah, need to get the mini drill out too!AND NOW YOU DO RIVETS!! I WAS JUST GETTING THE HANG OF STICKING TWO PIECES OF PLASTIC TOGETHER
Awesome knowledge, thanks for that! I'll have to make sure I put the hole in the front bumper when I get there. Sounds like you've had lots of fun Landie time, definitely think you should add an RC version to the collection though!Crank handle is for engine starting, on the Series trucks there is a hole in the front bumper for it to pass through and engage into a fitting on the end of the crankshaft
Photo is a Series Military bumper, but it has the hole
Superb build, Ive done two full size, a Series One and a D90, must do an RC
Thanks- yes, I actually just ebayed a whole assortment of different RC leaf springs, both 1/10 and 1/14 but those look very like some of the ones I'm using. You can use any leaf for under axle though- just changes the mounting. The only real downside for me is that the front pumpkin is now on the wrong side- does give more clearance for the servo horn though.Great looking series! Don’t know if youve seen these before but good for going leaf under axle
We love building scale models. Let's be honest. Which badass doesn't love a beautiful looking car?

Hinting of picking a set up for my yj to go sua
Many thanks for encouragement Beers!!Dag my friend...your seriously an Awesome builder.
Just love coming to look at all the greatness happening on this rig.
Truly a master and MAD SKILLS.
My eye's are extremely happy.
Scratch building at it's finest.
Thanks!Gorgeous work! Shaping up nicely
Yup very true- and it does get delicate. For a truck I'd intended to be able to grab and drive whenever I'm now finding it very easy to accidentally knock a tiny piece of detail off somewhere... though I think for me I want to build everything like the 1:1 just because it's fun to be reading through 1:1 rebuilds and imagine I'm doing the same.Loving the wiper motors, and all the rivets under the seats. I'm always of two minds with hidden detail - it's nice knowing it's accurate to the last bolt, but it's almost disappointing that the great unwashed, hoi-polloi, rabble and proles will never see and appreciate those hidden gems...
Thanks Jenny.I'll echo what Forth' just said - the scratch-built styrene detail is off the charts - those wipers, the motors, all the rivets - this is an exceptional replica of the real thing!
You've clearly got this dialled in, although another thing you might want to consider chassis-wise is the current transfer-case set-up - that low-slung cradle for the Hammer transfer case [with 4-link mounts] is not ideal perhaps? - My suggestion would be to use one of these [ebay/Injora] 2:1 transfer cases I've used on my YJ and the D90 - they are designed to fit with the universal chassis rails you're using and give you much better under-belly clearance. They'll mate with the R3 gearbox you're using in a similar way and shouldn't encroach on the transmission tunnel/seat-box either... recommended!
Thanks for this Fourth. I've never considered a planetary gearbox but that looks a really neat package!Hey something I've been meaning to mention, if you're not entirely set on running gear. I recently got my hands on a planetary 1:5 gearbox that connects directly to the motor. Great for keeping weight really low down. I'm using it on an MST CFX but might be useful here too...
If you struggle with the German let me know.
Thanks, very kind... I have a very little update...My friend. I look forward to seeing any little update on this thing. You're a magician.
