1/35 Rhodesian Rhino MPV
For this model I used an Italeri 1/35 Land Rover Series III chassis (as used by the full size vehicle) and then scratch built the mine protection capsule, interior and roll bars. This was the first vehicle type designed by the Rhodesians to combat the land mine back in the 1970’s.
This was my first attempt at scratch building a vehicle part.
The capsule was made using white plastic sheet cut to size.
The roll bars are 2mm aliminium rod.
The canvas covers were made by using an old handkerchief and gluing it to the roll bars/engine cover bars using white glue.
The seat belts were made using printer paper and painting them black. Glued into position with white glue.
Number plates were printed on printer paper using my ink jet printer and glued into position with white glue.
Paint used was Acylic Humbrol spray can Dark Green.
