SHADO Jeep

Still a work in progress, but it shows promise:


At the moment, I'm working on crash-moulding the windscreen, then I can add the spine and rebuild the rear axles. I'm hoping to have it ready for the Fanderson Convention

That is very cool, and being from scratch makes it even better! Cool
  

What do you mean, we're out of coffee!

The body shell is; the running gear comes from 2 Tamiya kits of the Morris mini

Actually,I'm not - being currently unemployed, I really cannot justify the cost -  even to register is nearly 2 weeks' Jobseekers' allowance.
If it's finished, a friend will be bringing the jeep (and other models donated by the Eagle Transporter forum members)

Wow. What incredible detail. I am so impressed!  I would never have the patience to do something as intricate as this!

Brilliant work.

Those are amazing. Do you make them simply for your own satisfaction or do you finish them and sell them on (for eg) Ebay? I imagine they'd sell well.

There's only the one, which I'm making for my own pleasure. There's also the added attraction of solving the technical problem of the windscreen. It appears that I started construction in February, after spending several weeks on developing construction plans
