    The 48 I ordered from UK, the S3 ute a friend found at Cash Converters. I think I bought the 2 red ones from Brisbane Motor Show. The Defender , Disco 4 & range Rover I found on Ebay the other day as a set.
    I'll post my 1/43 scale in the next couple of days.

    This is the DIY Aldi Defender.



    I think it is 1:24. It looks the same as yours.

    Probely is . I'am trying to collect one of each model Landrover , also trying to collect one of every car I have owned which is difficult because some they only made sedans in the model & i had a ute or station wagon in that type of vehicle. I'll keep looking you never know I just managed to get a model of a P3 Rover which i have been looking for for years.

    Well, when I was a boy in the sixties, diecast was big. We used to get a new Matchbox car most times we went into town, after looking at the catalogue for hours. A Corgi or a "big Matchbox" model or one of the "sets" would maybe be the big Christmas present.

    I kept my boyhood LRs. I still have my Corgi Land-Rover 2A green 109 ute. I still have my little Matchbox Land-Rover 2A 88 roof less. Alas I lost my Matchox 2A 109 safari station wagons somewhere along the way.

    My boys had the later Matchbox 90 Hardtops. Of course.

    As for diecast collections, Peter H. (Llan Rova Parts) built up a huge collection. Huge.

    I have around 100 Land Rover models all up, though not all diecast.

    1 is sheetmetal and I have a wooden one too, both African.

    I still have my very first LR model, bought in the 60's ......a LWB Safari Wagon, mint with box.

    When I went to high school I gave all my diecast models to the young boys next door there were 8 children in there family& they didn't have a lot of toys. I still have one left a MG TC which I had lost in the yard & was digging in the yard a few years later & found it. Half the underside plate had rusted away & was missing the rear wheels but I have had it about 60 years now .

    Hello from Sherwood.

    There are some specialty hobby shops in the UK that sell the parts for certain diecast models, including Dinky, Corgi etc.

    A web search can track them down.

    Cheers
