I was pleasantly surprised when I received this model.  The overall detail is excellent, considering the $8.95 price from Collectors Net USA * (Click Here for direct link). The overall length of the model is 10.5 inches.  The Land Rover measures 4.25 in. long x 1.5 in. wide x 1.75 in. tall.   The boat, without trailer, measures 5.5 inches long x 2.5 in. wide.

This free wheeling model has poseable front wheels, opening doors, plastic lens for the headlights, and the driver and passenger mirrors are painted silver .  The model includes the Fire & Rescue Land Rover III 109 with Fire Brigade Boat & Trailer.  The graphics are clear and very well done.

The boat is a FDERT Valiant PT-750 with twin Sharp Racing outboard motors.  The model's motors move right to left at the same time.  Additionally, the tongue jack  that supports the trailer does retract.
