Revell Land Rover Series III LWB
Posted by keavdog on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 11:13 PM

Been working on this one off and on for a bit.  Really nice kit - lots of parts and options

First attempt with Revell paints - pretty happy so far

Not super detailing/wiring, but spending a bit of time Alclading (is that a word?)

Had some pretty big orange peal in the back floor board, but it won't be seen so moving on.  Making good progress now

Thanks,

John

Great project, KD!

I've got the same kit...toying with the idea of doing a 'faux conversion' (appearance only) to the police-marked Defender 110, from the BBC crime series 'Death in Paradise'...so I'll be following along with great interest. Your work so far looks top-notch.

Cheers

Greg

Thanks Greg.  Sounds like a fun project.  My suggestions are to decide left/right hand drive and your seating choices.  There are lot's of options on this beautiful kit, but review the instructions and mark what you plan on doing.  Will make things go smoother.

A bit more progress. 

Thanks,

John

Fantastic job,Keav!A simple yet outstanding build!I sure will be joining in on this one,as I feel Model Cars/Trucks/Anything that has four tires is of great interest to me.

If I were you,I think I would choose the right-hand driving.After all,Land Rover is based in England!

So confusing.  I assumed right hand drive was uk, which I chose.  Am I mistaken?  

Thanks,

John

Are the yellow 4 wheel drive selector handle and the red hi-low range selector handles located on the left side of the transmission tunnel?  If so, that is incorrect as both are located on the right side of the tunnel on RHD and LHD trucks.  The yellow selector is on the side of the tunnel while the red selector is on the floor.  These levers have the same shape for both RHD and LHD while the transmission gear shift lever is bent a bit differently.  The parking brake lever is on the face of the seatbox on both but to the right of the tunnel on a RHD truck and to the left on a LHD truck.  When fitted, the overdrive lever is on the right side of the tunnel near the seatbox.

These are the selectors on one of our 109s.

Sounds like Revell made a mistake then because there are two tunnels and the selector/shift sit opposite for LHD vs RHD.  Thanks for  the details Bob -  I think I'm to far down the road to fix it now.

Thanks,

John

I guess they figured everything flipped to the other side.  I'll take a look at the kit when I can.  I'd been converting Esci's three door 109 into a five door but stopped with Revell's ready made version.
