    Camel Trophy Car 1:87 scale (H0)

    The car model itself is made by Herpa:


    The wheels I used are from a Herpa Porsche, I had to buy 2 of those to get me the 6 wheels I needed:

    The casting of these Fuchs rims match the ones found on the 1987 Camel Trophy Range Rover.

    The figurines/drivers are from Preiser.

    (No. 3 and No. 6 from the left are the ones I used)

    The Sandglow color formula I used is:
    Humbrol Enamel paint numbers: [color=#FFFF80]148[/color], [color=#FF8080]61[/color] and [color=#FFFF00]154[/color]
    3 parts 148
    1 part 61
    1 part 154

    The photo's tell enough.
    Any questions?
    Just ask.

    What is Camel Trophy, and whats it about?
