hey guys heres my overland, it has:
alloy motor heatsink
alloy motor mount
alloy gear cover
alloy skid plate
lssm mod
xmod offroad kit tyres
green skeleton chassis

got it for xmas... and i love it. i got it with an f150 body, but ive mounted a landrover defender model kit on there now:

theres some pics anyway, the kit does come with a roof, need to attach it. btw, the mounting is about 90% done, its drivable, but the body tends to move about abit, i need to find a way to hold it level, i used velcro to mount it see. ill update as soon as i can, my mr02 needs upgrading first though so im low on cash:(

thats the plan:D i need to wait for it t be in stock though:( im hoping to make the roof removable, and have a roll cage and interior- so itll be a sort of convertible crawler. i just finished a cb antenae so ill try and get pics at some point

A "Landy" is always a good call for an Overland. I like the molded color. You are also ahead with those alloy parts. I have lost count of how many plastic gear cases I tore up on mine.

The Scout is cool too.

Would be cool to have both side by side, on top of the mountain, by the edge, overlooking the city. ;)

hammer- thanks, i want more alloy parts because ill probably end up breaking plastic :o

nomotorlimit- could throw a bronco and a blazer in there aswell, you can ge loads of kits these days. id like to build a chevy silverado but the kits really long, like the cab goes further than the back wheels, so it would be tricky:(

i replied to your pm, its an italeri kit, lots of goodies inside too. bit pricey at 20 but quite rare.

btw ive started building an interior, i might scrap it and start again though im not too sure about the floor pan :S

started the interior, needs more work before i can paint it but im pleased so far. took it on a test-run offroad today on grass, rocks, gravel and damp dirt and it drove ok.

Ah, I was confused for a moment, as there is another Landy build on there and thought that was you at first, but then realized for example the paint was different etc. Cool! :)
