Herpa 034029

Type

Range Rover first generation

Comments

Correct metallic paint. Painted lights. The headlights have a moulding join right in the middle. But, contrary to appearances, they are transparent, moulded with glazing. The steering wheel, moulded with the seats, has a very ugly extruded shape. Tyres too wide (3 instead of 2.4 mm, in excess of 25%!).

Modifications

Headlights enhanced (lenses), axles shortened, tyres thinned and glued on the rims.
