Beautifully done! Your models all have a "museum" quality to them.

I had a 1907 Mercedes-Benz from Bandai that got lost in a move before I summoned up the nerve to tackle it.  and it wasn't particularly accurate either.   The fact that it was a "Mercedes-Benz" should be your first clue as to how much attention they were paying to accuracy.   I think the colour scheme works great, and is certainly period correct.   There have been some pretty wild colour schemes applied to Rolls-Royces, and some make that look downright restrained.   All in all, I think a very nicely done build of an Edwardian classic.

Impressive build overall. B)  Nice details, if that was photographed somewhere with the correct background, this could very well be in a next Real Or Model picture.

 

On these Pre World War 1 cars, is it much harder to find reference material if compared to newer ones, for example 1950s cars? Just curios.

Wow nice build I like the use of wood - One of the early Rolls-Royces was green with red mountings, so you have a precedence for your colours

Most excellent, Harry!  Stunning build.
