This is such a fantastic announcement and it's going to be a great companion to the early Bronco and 60's Suburban kits.

Color me a shade of excited for this one.

Time to fire up the research machine and find out what the body color options are.

No problem, I only live 7 miles from the Land Rover factory, I have in the past made a few Land Rover and Range Rover models for R&D

Look very well detailed, I want it.

Will be interesting to compare next to the old esci and monogram kits.

Any release date yet?

I spent a lot of time in one of those. Now I have to get one. Is it out or not released yet?

I would be all over this if it was the SWB version. Drove one in high school at the Mercedes dealer, never got a speeding ticket, also never got stuck and Lord knows it wasn't for a lack of effort!

This is great news . I have been wanting a Land Rover kit for a very long time. It  probably is overly ambitious but I would like to attempt a replica of this particular Land Rover

I've seen something very similar in resin. I think it was kitformservices and possibly an military ambulance version

That would be a cool version to build. If memory serves, one of the drivers was Robert Bateman, before becoming famous as a noted wildlife artist.

I expect 90%+ of the 1:1 versions were built as right-hand-drive, but the box artwork makes it look as tho this kit will be left-hand-drive.  Can anyone confirm this?

Yes,the kit comes with L/H/D and R/H/D dashboards, I've been told it is planned for release in the 4th quarter of this year, so should be out pretty soon, of course back when the Series 3 was current,a lot of them were sold to Ex British Empire or Commonwealth countries, so would have been R/H/D, although they were popular in other European countries, which would have been L/H/D

Both R/H/D and L/H/D dashboards; excellent news! Is this kit in 1/24 or 1/25 scale, (or something else)?

Right you are. The Land Rover had been restored to exactly how it looked during the trip and it is very cool.
