MOC Land Rover Discovery 3

Recommended Posts

After few month i finished my largest Model Team creation so far.

As i am not very good with technic bricks, this is one of a kind, special edition, only rear wheel drive Land Rover :)

Its motorized, working steering and lights, but cause of the weight i didnt connect IR receiver and cables, but its ready to do that.

Weight with batteries is over 5000g so it hardly stands on wheels, for that reason there are 16 shocks absorbers, 8 didnt hold the vehicle up.

Weight: 5000g

Lenght: 553 mm, 70 studs

Wide: 264 mm, 34 studs (including mirrors)

Height: 260 mm, 33 studs

Stickers are temporary, must find better font.

Love it! Never seen so many hard-spring shock absorber per wheel, can we see a video of this beauty in action? :classic:

Fantastic attention to detail and you've got the looks spot on. :thumbup: :thumbup:

As commented above, the only critique would be the wheels extending beyond the arches.

That is a fantastic MOC! My father had one for years and I recognise all the details instantly, you got the interior spot on. Maybe one point of improvement: the exterior shape is a bit too square an boxy. The real LR3 has some slightly angled surfaces on the "glass house" (the upper part with all the windows) and the nose. I'm sure this should be possible at this scale. Nice work!

Yes, i agree, wheels should be under the mudguards. In first place i build with the tyres of 9398 (I buyed wheels of Unimog later). Plan was to build an aftermarket big raw offroader, then i was hooked up with all the details that this car have in original look.

I know all of u, who had this car, knows how much intentiton was in this build. Iam very satisfied with interior and cockpit (i just love cupholders :). So theres a lack of proportion on a body, it could be done better, ive had some more ideas, but went out of brick, mostly hinges and tiles to make more round car like original. In a moments it looks like a previous model. Maybe some other time.

There wont be a video, cause it wont move well, just too heavy. Its more of a display car. But i will try when i get Sbrick.

I added shock absorbers cause it colappse with only eight. And it wasnt nearly close finished. It hardly stands now.

Great details on this beast. Things like thee gas tank access door, the centre console and glove box that open really make this model stand out. How long did it take you to build it?

Few months, most of it i waited for the small BL orders. I could say three full weekends? A lot of this time was looking and thinking :)

I know i made about seven different front lights, that take me about whole afternoon.

Awesome moc! I envy the amount of tiles you own. Has it been a costly project? How much pieces in total? Does the bike actually fit on the tow hook carrier?

@zenzic; i had most of bricks, but i had to order many small orders to complete creatios. I will count the pieces when i disassemble it. The bike is just a mod of original lego set, its a bit big for the Land Rover. But it fits on the back, see Flickr.

Wow, nice Disco! At the moment I looked at the pictures I thought "what a nice little Land Rover". That was untill realized those are unimog tires and not cheese slopes above them!

Outstanding! But, I have the same suggestion that I always have when I see a Land Rover MOC. It needs some puddles of leaking fluid underneath it and a matching MOC tow truck.
