wow - well done mate!

thats a huge collection of beautifully realised scale models :)

Have you ever considered building radio control models?

the Italeri kit was the one I used for my 1:24 rc - it's still a work in progress

yes i have ideas of making some land rover body for RC models..but i didnt have any RC...because in here, mostly RC model is lil' bit expensive, and mostly the good RC is the expensive one..so i decided just to make a static model...
well i got this italeri model too..but im planning to cut it become 88'...and change the plastic series III grill with the australian 6 cyl series IIa (late) style...hehe...
anyway what tires do you use here? its awesome mate'...so grippy... :)
i also impressed with the soft top..it looks realistic..
awesome job you got there mate... :)
awesome..!

thanks for your advice and comment mate'...

Hi Grill, I thought I had a good collection but yours is way out in front.Well done.Only one of mine was scratch built, as a toy for my son, and not really well built at that.Cheers, 130man.

Hi Grill, I particularly like your 130 double cab model. How did you do that one? I would like to do something similar. It hadn't occurred to me to chop up other models and mix and match parts but I can see the possibilities now.Cheers, 130man.

That's quite an impressive collection.

I'm upto about 50 models now. Half a dozen are plastic kits and a couple of them are RC. I would love to do a scratch built but cant decide on what media to use.

I do have the instructions for an electric series II from the Real Life Toys collection but I haven't started that yet. Maybe your post will inspire me.

Well done, good work.

hi...
thanks 130man :)
i did it by modifying die cast land rover scale 1:43 cararama, basic model is defender 110..
first i cut the rear body, the hardtop, and also cut the chassis...
an then i did some scratch build on the back such as:
- rear hi-capacity pickup
- rear windows frame
- soft top frame
- stretching the chassis
the rear pickup and the rear window frame were made from plain plastic material similiar to the tamiya's plaplate...just shape it up, cut it up, and then some putty job to smoothing the final shape.
the chassis also stretched using plaplate, add some more lenght to make the wheelbase 130 (in 1/43 scale)..
the softop frame was made from paperclip...
i also modifiying the hardtop by cutting it and put some plaplate in the cutted side to make the double cab rooftop...
its pretty easy to find the material mate'..for plaplate you can find it maybe in the local kit model shop...papper clip? offcourse its an easy stuff to find... :)
i think its a better way that you build the "needed" part (such as pickup, rear windows frame, etc) by scratch build it that you mix it from the other models...because it can be more you and more like what you want..

happy tryin mate'.. :)
im still tryin and learning to modify and build models...so maybe i cant give you much tips..but i'll try to help you as far as i can..ok? :)
so if there are any questions i'll help you.. ;)

cheers,
regards - daniel prasetyo martopo

hi..
thanks foz.in.oz...:)
50 models are a huge numbers of built...awesome mate'...!
im not focusing on building plastic kit, sometimes i modify some diecast models, or sometimes just collecting it...as long as its a landrover..heheh..
glad that i can inspire you... :D
you can use the plaplate from tamiya (a kind of plain plastic material) to build the body...and some putty to smoothing the shape...

cheers mate'...

Hi Grill, just in the process of acquiring a new digital camera, so will try to post some photos after it arrives.I've been collecting for 30 years,so have had ample time to amass that many. Have bought a number over E-bay but mostly from shops when I get the chance.Cheers, 130man.
