So that was my guess ;) Thank you! I'll keep that in mind if I need some details or help.

This is very cool, I grew up riding beat up old Landies on my mates dads farms

As I recall, the external filler cap was unique to the 4 door Safaris, with both the LWB and SWB 2 doors locating the tank under the bench seat. I seem to recall a dual tank option, with a second tank under the left front seat also. I have a feeling the tank switch over required you to stop and lift the drivers seat to turn the valve. The Safari had quite a lot of differences to the LWB, as there was no footwell for the second row on an LWB, being basically a pickup shell.

The short base 88" had the external filler cap (about 3") behind the right door. The 110" had the filler cap almost at the end of the right side. This is the case for the series 2 and the series 3. Don't know that about the series 1.

Thank you for the information!
Everything makes sense and for a good coincidence, my Land Rover fullfils that. I cut out the footwell because it was the correct measured distance to could have to be removed. Perfect.
The location of the filler cap doesn't let allowed another location for the fuel tank as under the front seats. It wouldn't make sense to build a filler hose from right behind the door through the whole car to the rear.

To keep context, my experience with Series 3s was entirely British Military Issue, and a lot of those were lightweight SWBs

I'd like to see pictures of the build ... BTW how did you get the door logos ?
14. January, 15:36
Thank you mates!

@Julian Herrero aka Yuri unfortunately I did not take any pics of the build, the logos are from the decals of the kit ;)

Barcelona Firemen ? That's incredible ... good work anyway ... just hopping the number plate is true .... ;)

15. January, 13:49
i was curious to know if it was....but the closest that i found was this [img1] (number may still be real, but good luck if you want to find it)
15. January, 14:40
As mi father was and my brother is Barcelona firemen, I studied the subject.
Sadly, this kit by italeri, vehicle identification BT-12 (bomba tanque) did not exist. Moreover the department didn't have any Landrover 109 like this one, they instead had Landrover 109 with 5 doors, vehicle identification C-12 (comandament 12) wich was a command vehicle.

Anyway, this was a present for my brother's birthday aniversary and he liked it so much! ;)
