1950/60s Rolls Royce
« on: April 16, 2019, 08:04:12 PM »
I am wanting a 1950/60s style Rolls Royce, (in 1:148 not 1:1  :)). Having spent a fair while searching t'internet, I know that Wiking have produced one, but the pictures I have seen do not look very impressive, self coloured radiator grille for starters  :no:. Oxford Diecast do not seem to list one, although I suppose I could make do with a Daimler. Does any one know if any are available or can point me in the right direction please?

Don't know of any Rolls Royces of that period other than Wiking's Wraith,but I think the Oxford Princess may be more in period than the Daimler

It looks like I may have been mistaken. I always thought that Sir Donald Cooke, the present occupier of the Manor House , (the subject of the next 'Averingcliffe' chapter), had a Rolls Royce - it would appear that it was an Austin Princess!

Still a nice car.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Agreed. Maybe a Roller is a bit too pretentious for Sir Cooke - A Princess it is.  :thumbsup:

As John @Train Waiting has just stated in his 'Poppingham' thread, "But one of the great pleasures of model railways is that one can stop or even reverse time". I am pleased to inform the readers that Sir Cooke has an Austin Princess on order!   :). The next chapter in 'Averingcliffe' may have to be delayed a bit whilst awaiting said delivery and anyway, there is some landscaping to be done in the grounds.  ;)

Let's hope Sir Cooke is somewhat younger than a certain Philip :uneasy:
