Great details!
I'm actually really partial to Series 1 Discoveries, and I definitely think you're going to do it justice.
Can't wait for more!

The body is now primed and I need to go back and do some touch up areas of filler... not bad though. Sorry, no photos of it though.

However, my replacement 1.9 mud thrasher tires from RC4WD came in last night though. They look awesome, but I am afraid they are too big. I still am waiting on the chassis to arrive (should be here Friday) to see how it really will look. I may though end up going with the 1.55 tires to look more scale. Again, I have to wait to see when the chassis arrives. I also am going to hold off on painting the body right now.

So... While I'm in limbo, I decided to make some other bits. I made a 20' snatch strap, a 30' snatch strap, a 10' tree strap and some various sized bungee cords. I also got a new pooch. I will repaint him to look like my Golden Retriever. He is a little small, but I think he'll be ok.













Cheers,
-Steven

Nice job on the straps. Common flat shoe laces and heat shrink? How did you make the bungies?

With all these Land Rovers kicking around here, has anyone make one with an oil leak to match their 1:1? I have a Defender in progress and a LR3 waiting. If someone made a decent RRC body, I'd have to make it leak like my real one.

Very nice, I like all the little details you're putting in Have you thought about tamiya BF goodrich tyres? I gather they're smaller than the RC4WD Mud thrashers, but obviously based on the same pattern. bit of a squarer profile but I'm sure they're smaller.

See that is the problem with not having a hobby shop near me. I cannot just go and pick one up, feel it, look at it, and see if I like it. I have to buy off this interweb and hope that if it does not work, they will take it back which costs me more money for shipping and time wasted lost.

If it helps, the Tamiya BFG is 89mm x 32mm when mounted on a standard rim, as opposed to 99mm x 36mm for the Mud Thrasher.


Perhaps you could cut an 89mm disc out of paper to try and size it up against your bodyshell?

By the way, I'm planning on doing the same as you with the straps, I've just run out of bigger heatshrink so all I've got is some cut up shoelaces lying about at the moment

Don't forget the mid-size BFG style.. the SDI Grip Doctors at 95mm.

WOW this is really turning out perfect

Your attention to the details is top notch. Also thanks for the headlight lense idea. Did you use lexan?

Nice job on the straps, they look great.

I don't want to hijack this thread, but because someone asked how to make bungee cords, here's a video.

You got it right on the straps. For the 2 yank straps, I sewed the loops. I just used heat shrink on the tree strap. For the bungees, do a search on here and youtube. You will find some how-to's.

EDIT: just saw the video posted above. That is the one I am talking about.

Thanks! I do not know what the material is... sorry. It was vacuum formed packaging from a cheapo file set I got from Home Depot.
