I think that could be a pretty interesting and popular option.
The only other interesting choice i found was an RAF Military Police vehicle but that was a hard top.

That looks really good.
Any idea of estimated weight for the landy?

Cheers
Tim
Not yet. We will jiggle the mix of aluminum and steel that we use in the chassis to try to get an even weight distribution over the axles
Having built and used my Traxxas Defender for a number of years,i have found that it requires extra weight to be added to the front to stop it tipping over on very steep climbs,there were quite a few after market 'kits' for the Traxxas Defender to solve this issue,lets hope you can incorporate this in the Landy Design

here is a guy explaining the issue:

If the Landy flips over,it tumbles all the way to the bottom every time,which starts to cause damage to the model

Will be interesting to see what happens with spring rate and shock absorbers on this kit.

Both the 222 and the Quad have a very stiff suspension set up and are very bouncy when driving over something like an unmade road, and struggle with traction unless the diffs are locked with thick silicone.
