This is the 1961 Land Rover & Mini Cooper.  I did it in half size as is becoming my MO.

I just used scrap plywood around my shop. I made the wheels and speaking of wheels I opted not to put the 2 wheels on top of the Mini Cooper and put the Union Jack.  And to a salute to my friends I left in England, I put the steering wheel on the right side (take any way you would like).

The number on the side of the Cooper is not the one provided; this one is the address number of my house.

I liked working on this project.

And as always, thanks for lookin’

These wood toy mini - mini cooper toys are the best ever. I Love the scale and the workmanship - and everything else about them.

Awesome detail and on the half models. Seems like legacy would be a challenge in itself. Keep up the great work and sharing your pictures

Impressive!
 Brings back memories of my early days. My first car was an Austin Mini, that got thrashed around the nearby mountain roads rallying with a car club. Sadly no such luxury as a tow car and trailer to bring it home on. 
I like the look of this set, but doubt I could do the half scale thing, perhaps 3/4?
Keep up your inspirational work Bill.

Thanks for all the nice comments, all. I do enjoy makin' 'em  half size.

Wombat- 

I do love those Minis. Back when I was a teen Morris still made them. And back when I was a teen I drove around in a MG 1100. Mine was black. (I pinched this one from the internet)
