Certainly looks like a Landy to me, and the colour is just right (full disclosure: my first 6 years involved riding around in a pastel green SWB... the family car)

Good job, Geoff!

best,

M.

Very nice. I bought one of these kits and need to start it soon. I like your color choice. Great detail, too.

Photos of the Revell Land Rover taken in the studio, now it can be put away in the display cabinet for safety.

Very nice, I love the old Landys. My dads uncle ran a farm and he had many different variations of these. Good memories.

It looks fantastic, as befits the care and attention that obviously went into it that we saw on your WIP thread.

Just a small detail, but the rear lights capture the look of the Lucas originals really well.

Beautiful build. Expertly done.  Makes me want to go out and get this kit.  Any issues I need to be aware of?  Thanks for sharing this stunning model.

Thank you for your kind words, depending on if you get the Revell Germany or the U.S version, which I haven't seen the instructions, the Revell Germany instructions got a few things wrong,  just use the Internet for reference and you won't go too far wrong, the part listed for left hand drive transmission tunnel, throw it away, Land Rover never actually made a left hand drive gearbox layout, they were a little tricky to drive as the 4x4 and high/low range selector levers were a little out of reach, they also got the parking brake lever mixed up on the instructions,  again using the Internet for reference will show you which side it should be fitted.

But as for building the Land Rover, it's a superb kit to put together.

It's not chrome trim,but galvanised steel, it's quite bright on new Land Rovers but dulls down over time
