Range Rover Sport: Matchbox

Finally, my exams are over! And now I'm just waiting for the results to come out next week. So in the meantime, I guess I have plenty of time to update my blog. Let's start with this one:

Range Rover Sport from Matchbox VIP Luxury 2008
I wasn't really keen on getting this one even though I've seen it on the shelf a few times. But since I already bought the black Range Rover Sport a few weeks ago, I thought that it would be nice to have a white one to complement the black one.

The first Land Rover was launched in 1948, hence the 60th anniversary in 2008. Despite being released with the "60 YRS" tampo on the front doors to commemorate this event, the level of detail of the white Range Rover is quite disappointing, when you compare it with the black one. The headlights are not painted, and as you can see in the picture below, the taillights are just a pair of huge blots of red ink.

Even so, the overall shape of the casting looks pretty good. So it would still be a nice addition to my collection.
