Outside Broadcast Vehicle

I wanted to do something special with this Land Rover kit from Pendle.

I'd seen a resin mould of a TV outside broadcast vehicle based on a Land Rover and thought I'd scratchbuild something similar.  I built a box for the rear from plasticard, and found an old Scalextric cameraman and camera, which were mounted to a disc cut out of the roof (thanks Phil!) so they could be rotated to face any direction.

The Land Rover and box were sprayed in a dark blue and I added BBC Sport livery.

The finished article:

It all comes apart so that the Land Rover can be raced on the track.

And then put back together to record the action...
