Land Rover - 'Overload'

Post by tiking on Sat 27 Aug 2011, 10:21 pm

This is an Italeri 4 wheel drive 109" LWB kit I bought on Ebay. This little vignette is called 'Proud'. The African driver is 'Proud of how he managed to pack his entire belongings in one go.

The idea comes from looking at many pictures of various overloaded vehicles from around the world. Some more rediculous than others.

Permit me to add my accolades to the others. Aside from the overload story, the model is a delight to look at. In particular I note those fine weathering touches that make it stand out - a very nice piece of modelling and story-telling Tiking.

This build always puts a smile on my face, and these out door pics add to it nicely. Makes me think of the mountain forests of Kenya. bigthumbsup

Haha...yeah. I thought the pot holes would to the overload comic and how he would expect to get out of it with such a load. The base is insulation material, styrofoam.
