I want to have a go at building one of those small-scale replica landies for my daughter....

Has anyone on here built one?

If so, who's plans/ kit do you recommend and why?

I'm quite handy when it comes to woodwork (used to build posh kitchens) so sticking MDF together doesn't scare me...

any photos (either in-build or finished article) would be most welcome.
currently without a 4x4 as life is getting in the way!

I'd love to build one too, but.
For the price of a "Rebel Replica" kit you could buy a pretty good real Land Rover.
The other kit (the name escapes me) is pricey too, enough to buy a roadworthy series.

So if there are any alternate plans out there that someone could point us to?

There was an article in LRE a while back. It seemed quite easy if you can glue MDF together. The one they had was from the Toylander people themselves. If you can make a kitchen you can make one of those B)

I am in the process of building a Toylander - There is a build thread on here somewhere... I havn't touched it for some time to be honest (anyone want to buy a part finished toylander?)

ah, found the thread... Small Land Rover, for small people

Cheers
