Building my Cooper s replica in between meant that this Toylander has taken almost four years to finish so I've taken a little time off from re-building the 1275 engine & box to complete it before I miss another Christmas!  It's unique (I think) in having an extended wheelbase for scale accuracy - which then required a complete re-design of the standard braking system.   I've enjoyed building it but am glad that it's finally finished and will hopefully go to a new younger owner and introduce them to classic vehicle styling!

I wish I still had access to the previous one I built as I'd love to have a photo of them together but it's now living in Belgium.

Thanks, they're about 5 feet long and powered by a 24v electric transaxle from a mobility scooter

Thanks, I like to make them look as period correct as possible and in unusual liveries as most that I've seen are standard builds in standard colours.

I'm thinking that if I do another it will be on a chassis to allow opening doors and perhaps suspension.
