Tomb Raider Landrover Defender Slot Car

After Landrover made a special Landrover Defender for Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider movie, they released a less extreme road going version for members of the public to buy. When I saw one (see photos below) I thought it looked so good that I would make my own Tomb Raider Landrover slot car using the Land Rover model kit.

If I had painted my yellow Land Rover slot car a different colour (like Bonatti grey) and added some aluminium tread plate it would look very similar to the actual Landrover driven by Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie), but I had not seen the film when I built it.

Below are some photographs of real Tomb Raider Landrover Defender, used by the public, not Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie).
