Oxford Diexcast Land Rover Discovery 1 Marseilles 1:43 scale.

Product Code: 43DS1003
1 review |
£24.95

The Discovery 1 inherited some of the Range Rover characteristics including the chassis, suspension and 4 wheel drive system.  It was the first Land Rover aimed at a more affordable price point to attract the daily driving family market. To this end, modifications included smaller engine size and initially a three door option, whilst still maintaining the off road facility. A plus was more luggage space and it was the only model with a 4 cylinder petrol engine option as opposed to the diesel alternative.  And the driver had a choice of a 4-speed automatic or 5-speed manual gearbox

For the first time, Land Rover introduced a uniform interior colour scheme whatever the exterior paintwork, namely a signature Sonar Blue to seats and carpet. Luxury interior items included magazine holders above the windscreen, hand-holds for rear passengers built into the front seat head rests, new radio controls on the instrument cluster, two removable sunroof panels and a Land Rover branded cloth fabric holdall in the front centre console for storage. The dashboard retained the look of existing Land Rover vehicles including the instrument panel, digital clock, heater and air conditioning controls.

Here we see the Land Rover Discovery 1 in a blue/green scheme this time with its two tone grey flashes of additional colour. Additional trim to the exterior is finished predominantly in black including roof bars with silver to door handles, rear wheel cover and exhaust. Our vehicle is registered G524 WAC from 1989, the first year it rolled off the Solihull plant production line. Again echoing the real thing with a generic interior colour scheme, the interior is in Sonar Blue and Sonar Grey.

Our 1:43rd scale model, comes on plinth with clear lid and Oxford wrap.

    Voyage of Discovery

    Great model of the Disco 1. Colour and stripes are very good and complement a good model of the earliest Discovery. Great addition to the range. More Disco variations would be welcome especially Police etc.
