    Absolutely stunning level of detail!

    BTW, you can hack the file 'pli.mpd' located in c:\Users\<your account>\AppData\Local\LPub3D Software\LPub3D\extras\ to tweak the orientation of parts, and play with the edge color of black parts in 'LDConfig.ldr' in c:\Users\Public\Documents\LDraw\

      Thank you for the high praise.
      And thanks for the LPub3D tips! I hope to find some time on the weekend to try out these tweaks.

    I like the looks of this.
    I took a quick glance at the PDF. The black parts' connections are a little hard to see, but 2x zoom took care of that.
    I know where to find the 4x 18654 I need. My husband just built all the Speed Champions, so I'll raid his extra parts bag. :)

      Thanks for the kind words, Thea!

      You're right: the black parts can be a bit hard to make out in the instructions. They were created using LPub3D with LDraw as rendering engine.
      I made this model as a birthday present for a friend who used to drive such a Land Rover, so I printed this out in colour. On the printout it's even a bit harder to make out at times. I don't know if I can change something in the LPub settings to improve this. I will check.

      There is another thing which can lead to a bit of confusion, because in the parts lists in the PDF you cannot really distinguish part 2444 from 3022. :-( But it should become clear from the picture of the build step.

      I hope I won't get you in trouble with the hubby... with you nicking his parts... ;-)
