Very nice, although it has another different bodywork than mine, isn´t it? Thanks for the info.

Keko,
That Duesenberg J Tourster Derham by Neo has real presence. Maybe because it reminds me of 1930's gangsters. :D
The red Cord has great lines. A Nice group of models.
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
Steve

Beautiful models at reasonable prices. It brings home how high the quality of mainstream models is these days. The Peugeot is let down by the awful wipers. It seems odd to go to all the expense of the folding roof only to have these horrible cheap wipers spoiling the overall effect.

Another attractive Citroen - would that have been a period colour?

This pic would suggest the possibility.

Certainly cars were brightly coloured from the twenties to WWII. It was afterwards that a tsunami of black hit the motor industry.

From the workbench: enhanced BRK 1947 Ford Station Wagon...

Image
Image

Wood panels painted with Humbrol #10, body trim and window frames scraped and polished.

The headlights received a very light "whitewash" which was wiped off from the raised lines and then sealed with Humbrol Clear Cote - not perfect but easier than drilling and filling with resin...

And now I see that the license plates have to be redone, my hands were too shaky when I painted them...

I love the Pug but there's a few problems for me with the model - mostly the wipers which couldn't even be easily replaced. I'd really like to see a Matrix version.
The Hispano is a nice model but it's well worth paying a little extra for the Museum version with the nicely upgraded wheels and wipers.

It is much better in hand, in that the wheels are more matte and do not reflect as much as flash/lighted pics suggest.

Really nice model. Ixo Museum Series has great models at a very reasonable price. I have the red-black Spark which a little different bodywork.
