Wow... Many thanks for all the responses. Great research and info Bill. I'm not attempting to build a dead ringer on accuracy, but rather a good representation of OY2 when Dan Gurney drove it. I've also found out that these 2 kits might also have the nailhead. AMT - T149. 1940 FORD SEDAN DELIVERY VAN Revell - H1224:200. TONY NANCY 22 JR Roadster & Dragster double kit So, I've got a few choices.
I'm interested in building a scratchbuilt 1/24 scale version Old Yeller II, and would like to replicate the Buick Nailhead 401ci coupled to a Jaguar 4sp as used in the real thing. Can someone please let me know any kit/s that this engine was issued in? Or, if anyone has one, or a gluebomb model with one in it they can spare, I'd be interested to buy. TIA.
After a long absence from model building, retiring, and just about finished a house reno', I'm aiming to build as many cars that Mr Dan Gurney drove, as I can. Dan the Man drove a huge range of cars, so there are many to choose from, and gathering the info for each is also interesting. First one will be Old Yeller as a scratchbuild, then the next will be the one I've got all the info and stuff to build it with. Then repeat!! I'm into Studebakers as well, so the odd Stude might sneek in there too.
Yeah, the Mauretania is quite a bit different in the hull as well. So cancel that suggestion.
There is a nice looking Aquitania model on ebay at the moment.
Looks nice, but too big for me at 800mm long.
Looks like the seller got the photo's mixed up, as there are some of the Lusitania there as well.
