I always liked this Hot Wheels Range Rover casting, but thought the wheel choice largely ruined the model. I picked up three black versions of this casting from a flea market recently for about a dollar, and set one of the three on my to-be-swapped pile. Somehow that snowballed into buying this green union-jack liveried one still on the card off of eBay, and here we are. I went through a number of wheel options before realizing that as is often the case, MBX wheels were the way to go. Off came the 90s-riffic sawblades and these chrome Matchbox beauties took their place, giving it a more stock stance.
So here it is, a nearly 20 year old casting, fresh off the
card and under the knife (or in this case, the soldering iron) and into the
