Defenders plural

I am making two Defender 90's not just one.




One of them is based on Andy's 90 called Joe.


The other is a truck back version because Shelley said that is what she would like. I found a very nice looking one at Bespoke Cars by searching Google images.






The models in Blender are now complete and can be assembled to make variations of the station wagon from about a 1990 to 2016 and an open back pickup truck from 1984 to 2016.




There are several variations of the Land Rover Defender and its earlier unnamed model since about 1984. I've modelled some of the cosmetic differences but not all of them.

Pre-Defender 90 from 1984
Bonnet - dips down
Fuel filler cap - Rectangular just behind the right side (UK drivers) door.
Engine air intake - Left (UK passenger) side of the wing just in front of the door. (at least for the TD engine.)
Vent flaps under the windscreen - working flaps present.
Full length roof - 3 external ribs on the full length similar to the series vehicles. [Not modelled]
Pickup cab roof - No ribs. [Modelled]

200TDi from 1990 now called Defender
Bonnet - dips down
Fuel filler cap - Rectangular just behind the right side (UK drivers) door.
