Top Ten 2011 – #4: Land Rover Discovery

2011 was a year of cars. I found 5 cheap cars on ebay this year, a Ferrari F430 Spider, the Land Rover Discovery, a Chrysler PT Cruiser, a Volkswagen New Beetle and the Lamborghini Gallardo. My favorite is the Land Rover Discovery made by Heng Tai.

Elvis Car Museum

Here are the last pictures of the car shooting. A couple of years ago I toured through Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana. When I was in Memphis I visited Graceland of course. There’s a little car museum showing Elvis’ cars. That was the inspiration for these pictures.

Maybach 57

Actually this was a mispurchase. When I saw it on ebay, I thought it was 1:6 scale. But it turned out to be 1:8. I should have done some better research first. Well, it still measures 70 cm. In 1:6 it has to be 90 cm.
But anyway, it was a cheap item and it will work well somewhere in the background. And of course it can be used for the upcoming car magazines.

Dashboard Experiment

Some years ago I bought two 1/6 scale dashboards. One of a Chevy 1957 Bel Air and one of a Mustang Shelby G.T. 350.

The next waves in my little THE KIOSK magazine program will feature some 1/6 scale car magazines. For that reason I played around today with the dashboards. Here’s the result:
