More like 3 colours really.
The wheels were simply placed on for the photo, are you trying to wind me up - remember I will get my own back at some stage, when you are least expecting it.

Hi Zak,
I reckon I'd better behave myself.
If you get your own back I won't have a leg to stand on!
Get my drift?

Perhaps you need moderating?

Well I have had a few problems with this, general fit and etched brass and then I dropped it, resin and white metal is not as resilient as plastic and so a major repair job has been underway.
Anyway here is the rebuilt Land Rover.

Not to be outdone by Kiteman, eh?  That's looking grand.  It's certainly stirred up some memories looking at it.  Be a real treat to see when it's done.

Amazing how an ugly green lump can look so impressive.

While the paint dries here is another Land Rover.
This is the Series III 109 from Italeri, various decals sorry transfers are provided.
I think I am happier working in plastic.
Photo show the box art and chassis construction.
Over the years I have built a number of Land Rovers and I may sneak some photos in here later.

Here we have the offerings from Tamiya (Pink Panther) and a similar one from Italeri.
Bothe have the Eduard etched sets added.

As I call him "Spitfire Bill" should I start calling you "Land Rover Zak" OR would that result in double cost for membership and monthly subs ????????
