Hi there.

Universal Hobbies make series 2 Landrovers and Defenders, though they seem to be rare and expensive now. Minichamps is going to make original 1948 version, but I'm not sure when yet.

I have several of the series 2 Landies and Defenders. They are nice and detailed with full engines, realistic suspension (but not functioning) and a separate ladder chassis. I have modified one to have working suspension and am looking at making a 6x6 version too.

I'll post some photos later if you like. Have a look on EBay to see what is out there.

Cheers

Peter

There are so many versions. I guess that's a good thing but I'd prefer to just see more stock models. I have a drab green one and the Red Crescents version but would sure like to have more of them if they were more readily available in the US.  :bawling:

OK, yeah I'd rather have a plain civilian style. Blue with a white top or a drab green would be perfect. I usually check out ebay once and a while for them, but I don't see any. If they are more readily available in Europe, I'll wait until I am there next year.

Where is it written that the more diecast $$$ equals a better diecast?

I think UH did make one like this, but most are police type trucks. I have a fire engine and tow truck version of this truck.

Here is a link to some pics of the Minichamps series 1 Landie. It's a few pics down the page.

We need 1:18 Landrovers in diecast!  110 Defender TDi, Country's; 109 Safari's Series II & III
Also Toyota Land Cruiser in 1:18
This is a no brainer because of the number of countries in the world using the real ones !  The market likes these vehicles, I would think the market would be substantial for a good selection of 1:18 diecast

There are plenty of Land Rover models in 1:18 out there but I totally agree for the Land Cruisers.

I'd personally enjoy:
40 series with full opening parts
60 series
70 series
80 series with better quality than the Road Legends
90 series

Currently on production are only cars after 2000 but not the old stuck.

I think there are lots of fans of these cars all over the world so there would be plenty of clients.
Two beer or not two beer?
