Default Landrover LR3 on HG chassis

For this project I mounted my 1/6 New Bright Landrover body on the same chassis I used for my Dodge Ram build (consisting of HG parts and alu profile). I merely had to adjust the links a bit and inflated the tires because the wheelarches are bigger than those of the Dodge. I also had to construct some alu brackets to fix the body onto the chassis.










I hope I can persuade my girlfriend to make some action footage this week.

We've also made a clip of this rc car. It performs much better than the F-150 which is probably due to its superior tires (both in size and quality):

Hi, I was very lucky to come across this body because it's almost impossible to find any 1/6 New Bright and Eztec bodies in the Netherlands. All the 1/6 bodies I own were originally bought in Belgium or England. I envy you Americans because it's easy for you to find relatively cheap 1/6 bodies .

In the mean time I have uploaded another clip of my 1/6 Landrover :


Regards,

Arjan

This is amazing. I did not know that I needed a 1/6 car in my life until now.

Hi, in case you're interested, I managed to find another 1/6 New Bright Landrover LR3 in Belgium this month. It's exactly the same version I used for my build. I couldn't resist buying it although I didn't really need another one .

Regards,

Arjan
