A 1:76 Accurate Scale Model Diecast Land Rover Series II Hard Back British Railways. The Series II Land Rover was introduced in 1958 and was manufactured until 1961, when it was replaced by the IIA. Whereas the Series I had flat sides, the Series II can immediately be identified with the rounded side panels, which allowed for the wider track of the vehicle. This LWB Series II comes in "Blood and Custard" which comes from the slang used for the colours of British Rail carriages during the 1950's - Crimson Lake and Cream. These colours transferred to vehicles used across the network.
