Thursday on the Thames - The BIG 7-0

1948 Land Rover Series 1 by Matchbox Collectibles: Models Of Yesteryear. And it is 70 years old this year! :D

Wanted to do an outdoorsy shoot, but the weather was rotten. So the Landie got an indoor shoot.

I bought it in Melbourne in 2006, and it remained kept away in a cupboard for the longest time. I almost forgot I owned this model until I raided that cupboard to look for something else. Thank goodness I found it again!

The detailing is quite alright in this model. Love how the mudflaps have the old style Land Rover logos embossed in them. I especially like the standing spare wheel in the rear. Very cute!
