Default Dratch's Defender Build

My WK Bronco is finished so I decided to try my hand at building a 1.9 rig. I started with the body, I know there's a lot of Land Rovers out there but I really like this truck and its a decent shape for my first styrene body. It's finally starting to look like something so its time for a build thread. Here is the body after week 1 of the build.






If you would like to see more pictures of this build, here is a link to the web album for this truck.

Thanks for looking, what do you think?

Great work on the body! But are those styrene tubes on the rollcage? Think it will hold up in a roll?

Thanks! I made the styrene cage so I have a model for the steel cage. I am making the Chassis from plate steel and the cage from brake line. The cage mounts to the body just like the aftermarket cage for the Defender, 4 points in the bed and 2 on the cowl. The body mounts will bolt into the cage from underneath.
