Have 3 Rolls’s now-watch out Leno….
December 19, 2015 in Armor
Finally found the pattern 1914 version of Roden’s 1/35 scale Rolls Royce armored car. (Or as Roden says, “British” armored car, liscensing, you know). This one I think is really slick because it has spoked wheels and a low-profile turret, plus a nifty Naval ensign is provided. The spokes are photo-etched and the kit gives you plastic formers to get the depth correct whilst bending. Very nicely done. Model Master Dark Sea Grey is the base color, lightened in various shades and the tires were my interpretation of early undyed rubber. “RNAS” is Royal Naval Air Service, the initial users of these machines, as it was seen in England in 1916, after the trenches in France stopped all movement. Finally all 3 together in their riveted glory.
