Build a Ride-on Model Series Land Rover
Building your own Series Land Rover Toylander model from parts, can be achieved in 50/60 hours plus time for painting. This is novel and innovative way to utilise your workshop practical skills and actually produce a vehicle to compliment your existing full-size version.
You can use either 12mm plywood or MR MDF for the bodywork and when completed then the model should be capable of being driven by an adult in addition to children aged 3 and above.
Each Toylander model Series Land Rover features forward and reverse gear, a foot brake and hand brake, lights, a horn; folding windscreen and an opening tailgate. The vehicles are designed to be powered by either one electric motor or two and the overall design is such that the vehicles should serve several generations of drivers. You will have built an heirloom for your family.
To facilitate the easy building of these models, Toylander supply paper patterns for the plywood body and also a build manual full of instructions and drawings to make your own steel parts if you wish to do so. The manual shows how to assemble the parts into a body tub, how to bolt on the running gear (note that no chassis is required), how to wire up using the electric wiring diagram, how to apply the detail and complete your model.
The build is quite straightforward and all parts are available from Toylander individually, in small packs or in whole kits. You could also customise your build if you so wished. But do not fear, all parts, including some ready cut body panels, are available from stock.
Kits have already been exported to 30+ countries
