Default me shiny new D90 :)

Hey all im 15 so go easy on me please :/
I decided to build up a defender 90 on my trusty CC01 chassis my dad has owned 16 landys now ranging from almost all models so thats inspired me with my last 3 landy builds

Anyways I painted it matte black and extended the wheelbase. I got a friend from my local workshop to make me a propshaft and then started building and painting it myself.

Its got:
55t crawler motor
1.9 landy wheels/tires
uprated shockers/springs
3Racing winch (not installed yet)
Locked rear diff
Snorkel
Would like to make a bumper as I don't have one but not got the tools, materials or skills :(

Comment if you want

nice work, the fun has just begun.

if you can't weld or braze at all, just grab some styrene and some glue and start making a bumper from that. i like to use tenax 7 and plastruct bondene.

Do you have a local hobby shop ? You can check RPP hobby, or other online vendors, and there is always eBay.

I'm not encouraging you to play with fire or anything, but if you look at homedepot online they have a kit that you can buy for Harris silver solder and flux paste kit for under 30 bucks. Pick up that and a pencil tip torch head with a bottle of map gas.
There are a few threads around here on brazing, watch those, pick up the right supplies and just go for it.
Just be sure to be safe when playing with fire.

Thanks for the tips im going to try my hand at using the plastic then, with the help of my dad, try out brazing but I will need to save up some money for supplies first :/

For being 15 you do awesome work! In fact, for ANY age you do awesome work! Brazing will take a little bit of practice, but as long as you are being safe and take your time it should go well. I agree though, work with plastic, get the feel for what you like/want on your rig, then when the time and the money are right, pull the trigger on some brazing supplies
