Linisher all painted and finished.
Works really well and is a real asset.

Had a crack at making instrument bezels for the three gauges on the dashboard.

While the lathe and me were in miniature mode I also had a stab at the ignition/light switch.
That it currently drying so I couldn't show it with the dash.

How to make tiny glass lenses now! Kidding... I will use clear epoxy to fill each unit when the gauge decal is in place.

Choke knob, 12v sockets and headlight switch now added.

I'm on with the oil and ignition lights.

I've finally decided on a colour and I'm going to do my version of HUE at the British motor museum.

So it will be Land Rover light green

Spent the day at the motor museum at Gaydon. Great to see so many vehicles but I spent a lot of time with HUE 166 on which I will base my build.
Plenty of other models to look at too. The royal Land Rover used on a tour of the commonwealth looked great.
