Here's a model that I've been wanting to make for a while..........
One of my all time favourite drivers, and true banger legend, 88 Alan 'Speedy' Reed, and it simply had to be one of his favoured beasts, the Rover P5.
This model started life as a 1:43 Vanguards Rover P5 and has been fully prepared as any track car would be with as much detail as possible.
A whole load of work has gone into this car and has had both front wings cut, front bumper cut, inner front wings fabricated (to hide the usual 'gap' that you normally get!), doors plated, Alan's favourite roof fin made & attached and bonnet triangles added.
This model was primered and then hand painted in Alan's well known racing colours before the hand-made decals were applied.
Internally the model was stripped of all interior, a full H Frame built to fit the car, along with a Fuel Tank with fuel line and a bucket seat with full 5 point harness has been fitted. I think the old Rover steering wheel looks ths business in this model too!
I try and offer as much detail as possible on my models to get them as close as possible to those that have been on track.
Looks great on display....the photo's do not do the model full justice!
**I can hand deliver at the Steamer memorial meeting @ Mildenhall on 11th August to save the postage**
