Hi all,
Another Toy fair find from this morning...

This was in a bit of a sorry state, with a few missing bits & with the front bumper half hanging off..

..but fortunately, I remembered having all the donor parts it needed languishing in the shed, so about an hour of cleaning & repair & she's a runner :-D

Oh & the name?
I guess the previous owner was called Neil, as it's written in permanent marker pen on the bottom, & it's seems as good a name as any for a Land Rover :lol:

Cheers & thanks for looking
T'shot.

Looks great. Need to keep my eyes open for toy fairs!
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

..which I've just finished cleaning, it also needed a little sewing job on the canvas tilt, a task that took far longer than necessary due to my lack of skill :oops:

They make an handsome pair, & a real bargain for the £20 asking price.
