The Prisoner Mini Moke (conversion)

(Anybody wishing to purchase Decal sheet used on this project can do so here via ebay)

I picked up a 1/43 Mini Moke just before Christmas with the intention of converting it into “The Village Taxi”. The model was part of the James Bond Car collection and had a canopy attached in blue and white stripes.

The first thing I need to do was to paint out the blue strips and make the whole canopy white, also needed to do something about the rear window too, so elected to fill it in with Green stuff.

It took several thin coats of white paint to fully cover the stripes, I also neglected to take photos of the green stuff on rear window!

I also made a spare wheel for the back of the Moke out of Green stuff as the Bond version did not come with one.

My first thought was to paint in the correct colour stripes, but sadly my hand is not that steady, so the only answer was to design a decal sheet..which i did.

It took a great deal of patience to do. and some special solvents from Micro scale to help the decals conform to the surface of the model.

Ultimately I was very happy with the result, much better than I could have done with a brush.
