1/24 Defender

Recommended Posts

Hi I don't normally do build diaries but I just wanted to see what you guys think.


Here is just a little insight into a WIP I'm looking at doing soon, I’ve wanted to build the Defender from the tv series Death in Paradise for some time so I brought the Revell Land Rover to look at doing after my next project.


But last week our JRT passed away very suddenly, so I needed something to destroy and something to keep my mind from wondering, so I dug this out and a 1/24 metal version I had (hence the destruction).


So heres some photo of what I’ve done over the weekend to try and convert a Land Rover into a Defender, please leave feedback good or bad was to what you think.



Kit I'm going to use


The donner kit that I took apart.

Had a little play with the resin from my 3d printer to see if I could make items just using it and a uv light 


I needed these to be really thin and it worked





So I used the same process to make a new steering wheel



Just needs a clean up



Had one small hole at the back



Which I filled by painting some resin into the hole and activating the resin with the uv light
