I think most of us are familiar with the brilliant MK 1.5 Land Raider conversion by the guy who runs Blood&Skulls Industries:

But since these are one of a kind plasticard conversions they're prohibitively expensive.
Now what if I told you that I have teamed up with Blood&Skulls to bring you a fully CAD conversion kit?

Including a replacement part for the top armor of the raider, because if you simply cut the sides off the piece the cupola will no longer fit.
 
Lastly I'll leave you with the 3D printed prototype of the road wheels fitted to a raider:

Kit will be available soon on the Blood&Skulls ebay store.
 
Note for the moderators: I'm being paid a flat fee for the design so I have no financial incentive to post this. Posting here because I honestly think people will dig it.

Question, is the plan to have when pieces that sit inside the plastic parts and separate tread pieces? It seems like that would allow for the best fit.

You mean that the Resin is sandwiched between the two sides of the track armor? Because that is what is going on right now.

You could still take a knife to them.....
But I feel your pain man,

I guess my next forgeworld order will include a Mk2 landraider so I can turn it into a 1.5. . .because it's "only money." =)

This is great.  I got 1/2 way through this conversion using Tom's bits and then lost momentum.  This kit would be awesome!

Amazing mate! Can you do a kit too in which you have the extended side sponsons like the old Raider? If you do that I guarantee you one sale from my end!

Hm ye I've seen that one but the iconic land raider has the sponson act as a door to come in and out too and it's quite bigger.

 

Also, CAD for the win!
