Very cool! Did you 3D print all these parts, such as axles and wheels?

Looking forward to see the end result, I bet its going to look ace! :cool:(y)

Thanks for the wish. Discs of three parts each. One part is cast in resin, two are made on a lathe. All other details are handmade.

I continue to edit. Finished the revision of the front and rear axles. The suspension of the bridges is working, this was not in stock. Completed the rear wall of the cabin and redid the cargo compartment.

Nice work on the undercarriage. I like the mix of styrene and brass raw materials. Looking forward to seeing more of this.
Cheers,
Peter.

Thanks for the comment. I'm slowly moving on. I made a snorkel, a visor over the windshield, a rear window protective grille, a spare wheel bracket and two bumpers. I checked the interior with the drawings and it turned out that the rear seat on the model is located at a higher height than necessary relative to the cabin floor. I removed the extra 3 millimeters and it became normal.

Thank you.
I continue building the model. I made a trunk, added a chandelier to the visor and made a fuel tank protection sheet. Also slightly modified the front bumper.
