Continuing with 'Car Month', I offer these photos of a batch of 1/32 scale cars I picked up on Ebay a couple of months ago. These looked to have been built and painted many years ago - generally to quite a good standard. All required a degree of repair - re-attaching parts ranging from gear levers to complete axles. Some of them are earmarked to transport King Boris III of Forbodia and his staff.
I also have amassed a number of car kits still in boxes - mostly from Airfix and Revell, so I'll try to build at least one of them this month.
|1911 Rolls-Royce - an old (released in 1955!) Airfix kit. King Boris's own car.|
|1904 Darracq - again by Airfix (1956) - possibly for the use of a Forbodian Brigadier.|
|1907 Lanchester by Airfix (1957)|
1905 Rolls Royce by Airfix (1956) minus it's front wings - I just couldn't get them to stay in place. This may be allocated to Forbodian divisional staff officers.
|1926 Morris Cowley by Airfix (1959). This looks a bit modern!|
|Another Airfix favourite from 1956 - a 1910 Ford Model T - authentically finished in "any colour you like..."|
A Ford Model A complete with driver. This rather charming model is a Gowland (no relation!) kit, the original tooling for which probably dates form the 1950s.
