1983 Land Rover Series III Camel Trophy

TLC

Scaled, but not fishy.
Epic stuff mate! ::2thumbs
Some of the bridges looked awesome, especially this one with all the old damaged and weathered recovery boards patching it up. :cool2::biggthumpup:

It turned out amazing.
I love just looking at all the details and the lines.
Tires and wheels really bring it home also.

I like the little building to. Makes for a wonderful back drop, only thing missing are the African animals.

Great build my friend. Should be an absolute pleasure to see and drive on the trails.

Thanks man. I like it, and it runs well. Back door kept coming off so I'll fix the bumper thing to the body and make just the door part removable. Unfortunately I never took any video ::awwcrap
Really great work. Can't wait to see some photos of it in action at the event.
Thank you, photos are up ::2thumbs

Great job.

nice photos.

please take a lot of photos at the Camel trophy event.
I would like to be there with you...

next time I hope..

Thanks man! There are many more photos on Facebook, on both JS Scale's page and Camel Trophy Europe.

A truly awesome scratch build mate, you deserve to be proud of it. ::2thumbs :cool:
Yes, also a nicely accurate UHF telly antenna.....;):lol:

It's very important to get those details right... ;)Thank you!

hi,
do you have a link for your red lights?
what do you have like rims? they look like glued aluminum rims.

Hi, the lights come from Loops (https://www.rc4x4-shop.com/, or https://www.facebook.com/loopsmodel on Facebook). The lights are about halfway down on this page - https://www.rc4x4-shop.com/For-Defender-c11_0_1.htm

So cool! Really does look the part. Love the hut too.

Ok, I'm planning a road trip now but sadly it won't be this year because of work. Will keep an eye out for your landie on the vids when they're out though...

It would be awesome to see you down there one day ::2thumbs

Thanks and yeah they put a lot of effort into the trails. Lots more bridges but I never photographed any of them. One was about 10 metres (~33 feet, 0.01 kilometers, or the length of 0.13 jumbo jets) across water I was told was 2m deep and a another 1m of mud beanath that. And at one point there was a pile of wood and you had to build your crossing from that.

It was very well thought out!

So very cool Fourth, it looks an absolute hoot. Really great engineering for the bridges, that dinghy looks amazing too!

Most of all though, beautiful trucks- especially yours!
