    I am rebuilding the BSG LANDRAMS and putting a bit of detail into them.
    I am sorry that this is not a detailed build thread (but I need to get these done ASAP, without frakking them up).

    As you can see by the photos, I have recessed some area, and single & doubled other areas.

    I hope that this will inspire some of you to build your own Landrams and have a little fun with it.

    ENJOY!!!

    That really cool! Do you think you will make an upgrade kit so others may follow your work by emulating it? :)

    Thank you for the kind words and encouragement guys.

    As for upgrade kits, that really is up to Revell-fan and what he has in mind. Although, I do have a few ideas that I will be pitching to him.

    More photos are in the works.

    Here is a small update.

    I added some detail to the drive motor. I know that it is not much, but it still gives it a little extra.

    Now it is time to lay a ton of track.

    ENJOY!!!

    That looks so cool, especially from the side like that. Yo modifications have given it much depth and make it "Pop"! :)

    Finished!!!

    Well, I have finished the BSG LR.
    Here are the photos for your viewing pleasure.
    I hope that these will inspire some of you to do the same.

    This is a closeup of the right side of the gunner's section.
    As you can see, I have raised a few of the panels as well as dented the vents on two panels.

    This is a closeup of the left side of the gunner's section.
    As you can see, I have recessed and raised the front section for added depth and layered the four rear panels.
    IMAG0015.jpg

    This is the aft side of the gunner's section.
    I recessed the lights. Recessed and raised the panels of the rear hatch.
    score the panels on the right side and layer the two strips on either side of the round part that is on the left.

    This is the fire control for the main gun.
    I layered the handles, the sensor, an the other controls.

    Thank you for the kind words. It was a fun build.
    I am building the A-Team LR the same way.

    I am glad you like it. I will be doing the same with the A-TEAM LR, once it is finished.

    A-team landram

    Here are the photos for the cab of the A-TEAM LR for your viewing pleasure.
    As you can see, I am putting in as much detail as I can.
    I recessed the orange rectangle (I thought that they might be turn signals).
    I raised the panels on the lower front end to make it look like re-enforced armor plating.
    The rest of the detail matches that of the rest of the BSG LR.

    More photos to come.

    ENJOY!!!

    Hmmm... I think they used the same technique on that one. It definitely looks like a pre-dated Landram.
