My vision of Sheepo's MOC Land Rover Defender 90 on MAP chassis
About this creation
My first time not mine MOC review. As fan of 4x4 cars I can't miss oportunity to build this MOC by Sheepo. It is not huge like other Fernando's MOC's. So I am in!
I decided to do it with shortest and smallest version (I am lazy and busy simultaneously) - 90 inch version.
Epsiode 5. This shoud be in the end of the post, but I am afraid you can't go till the end.
My vision of Defender: Ultimate offroad machine, well result is not ultimate, but at least looking like that (I hope). I have to solve some weak points of original MOC. Model lost some its pros: gearbox and realistic axles. I have to reinforce chassis and transmission for high load purpose and increased weight of detailed model. Unfortunately, cant make Land Rover unkillable as my Toyota FJ. But result is lovely, Defender will take its place on my "untouchables" shelve with mechanical MAP chassis.
Then I have built Defender 90 body in yellow color. Almost STOCK. More photos.
I have too much of this color, and construction machines - is not about me. So this LR is good oportunity to use all yellow parts for Camel Trophy style MOC.
Episode 2 is about Defender body and small modifications I did with it.
Then my viewers ask me to compare LR with its all-time real competitor - Toyota Land Cruiser. I have several ready to go Land Cruisers on my shelve. So, that was easy for me. But it was not easy to compare this MOC's, since they are completely different inside...
