Thanks for that.

I just need to find where I can get one of the 1:10th Rastar Landrover LR3 models.

Not sure they're available any longer but start with google search (then click the shopping link) or amazon.

Do you know what chassis and running gear you'll use? Details?

I am open to suggestions for the running gear for the project.

I have found a supplier in the US.

But trying to find one over here.

I just bought on of the Rastar LR3s and will be mounting the body on a CC01 chassis. The 1/10 scale models are on ebay and are available in Black, Red, or Silver. http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-10-LAND-RO...item43b1a1c682

We can build ours at the same time and compare notes!

$85 + $60 shipping makes that one hard to justify!

I too have been looking. Once upon a time Rastar made a 1:10 Mercedes M-Class but I can't find any outside of Russia or China. Sucks.

Good luck on your search and if you find someone please post up the link!

Got my Rastar LR3 Discovery. Already separated the body from the chassis. It all comes apart rather easily. The detail is great. I just don't know what chassis would be best for this if I want to keep the interior. The CC01 doesn't leave much room for interior parts, the DF01 or TA02T and TT01 are lower profile bathtub chassis that might work better. Or do I mount it on a SCX-10. They all would be challenging if using the interior. I think the real LR3 has 4 wheel independent suspension doesn't it? Any tips or suggestions?
