New Mercy Ships Land Rover...

At first glance you may think this Land Rover Defender is the real thing. But don't be fooled, this is just a model that I found in East London. It was silver in colour when I bought it, so I had to make some changes. I gave it a couple of coats of white paint, added the Sierra Leone number plate of Mercy Ships Land Rover 625, and stuck on a Mercy Ships logo. And there you go, vehicle 625 comes to life in miniature form!

The downside is the wheels - the silver hubs don't look rugged enough.
