Well, somebody had build one and a lot of poeple never seen one before.  It was Americas first small car after WWII. Kinda reminded me of a refrigerator with tires. :D I really got to stop painting with maroon paint though.

Yes, it's a R&R Resin. Pain the neck build, major fit problems.

Very cool! Nice unusual subject to model. Those Crosleys weren't the prettiest cars, were they? Nice build.

thats a totally kool build of a pretty odd car. a friend of mine owned one of them up till a few years ago. they look very awkward in life. captured it well in that build i must say. from what i hear of R&R, you probably deserve a medal!

Nice build, fascinating little car. A Crossley won the 'Index of Performance' at the '50 (I think) Sebring 6-hour enduro, and a Crossley Hotshot was leading its class at LeMans a year later when electrical problems forced a DNF. Pretty impressive cred for a tiny car that early-on had an engine built of sheet-metal stampings, brazed together.

Thank you everyone. I don't know if I'm up to another one of these, but R&R also has a Crosley wagon. Maybe :rolleyes:

Nice job on that R&R VacuumCrap "model" (I use that term loosely.)

 

And it's easy to see why Crosley didn't last long as an automaker. That thing is pretty fugly.

Cool little car!  I worked with a guy who had a little Crosley wagon like this one.  He had a special parking spot in the alley where no other car would fit. He drove it to work for over 30 years.

 

Thank you everyone. I don't know if I'm up to another one of these, but R&R also has a Crosley wagon. Maybe :rolleyes:
