Thats really nice. Been wanting to do a Rolls Royce of that year or about. Can not remember the site that I saw that you could order them. 1/25 or larger. Any suggestions ?

So nice I want to lick it!
(Licking computer screen...)
Yech! Tastes like static shock! :P

All kidding aside, I love the early Jags, and you don't see them too often in scale, and you did a great job on this one. Keep 'em coming! :D

There are several classic Rolls-Royce models in 1/24-1/25, such as the Henley roadster and Star of India, but in 1/16 you'll find two very good kits.

The first is the 1934 Phantom II with Gurney-Nutting coachwork, the real car currently owned by Chuck Schwimmer's San Diego Collection (nice reference shots there). It's a Revell kit that is usually available on eBay and should never cost more than about $40-$50 (Beware of the "Museum" version, which has brass-plated parts instead of chrome). This build is by the late, great Martin Swire, with more pictures at http://www.freewebs....lsroycepii.htm. His site also has many other 1/16 masterpieces.

The other 1/16 is a 1937 Phantom III, originally issued by Gunze Sangyo and later by Revell and Anmark (there may be an Entex boxing as well). The actual car is on display at the Toyota Museum in Japan, and there is very little photo reference for it.

Those are super nice Skip. Was on ebay last night and found no Rolls but did locate a '30 four door Packard Speedster Phaeton by Monagram. What do you know about it ?

Not real familiar with smaller scales or Packards, though Most Monogram classics and Hubley classic car metal kits are pretty nice.

Here's the 1/16 Revell Phantom II with an excellent Buy It Now price of $25:

1/24 Rolls Henley roadster for $36:
