Hot on the heels of my Morris armoured car, and from the same box, is this Rolls-Royce. Although I am pretty sure that no R-R cars served in Europe in 1940, I included it in my 1940 Recce Regiment to provide a contrast to the dashing modernity of the Morris. No really.
I bought it a a show in the early 1990s and because the guys at Raventhorpe had run out of them in the morning, one of them rushed back to the workshop and cast a few more. The hull was still warm from the mould when I took delivery!
Like the Morris, this is a Raventhorpe metal kit made up of around 15 parts.
As usual I gave the model a very worn and battered appearance. Since then it has suffered more wear and battering on several games tables.
