HighSpeed - Range Rover Sport
HighSpeed - Landrover Discovery III

Die-cast models in 1/87 have come a long way, these new HighSpeed (available from Malibu in the US and from Schuco in Europe) models are perfect examples of the quality these cheap models made in China have reached in just a few years. Both the Range Rover Sport and the Landrover Discovery III have been converted to 1/87 almost exactly, have all details moulded and the wheels and rims are excellent. With some (mainly flat black) detail painting these two models are perfect replicas of their 1/1 prototypes.
