    If this kit is as good as the other Johan Gold Cup Series classic kits, it should be outstanding. 
    One caveat:  I have found that the reissued versions of the Mercedes 500K that are NOT Gold Cup kits are not produced as well -- more flash, inconsistent chrome. These reissues generally have a white border around the box top art.

    For some reason, when I try to reply to other posts today using my iPad, as I start to enter in the reply box it takes me to a blank page called google lead services.

    You really do a great job on 30s classics, Eric. I just received the Monogram Henley PII convertible version, apparently a first edition 1965 kit. For crispness and all-around nice touches, I'd rate it up there with Johan's original (not reissued) 1/25 Gold Cup series classics like their Mercedes 500 K  kits. This Rolls is head and shoulders above Monogram's Mercedes 540 K kits.

    Looks great. What scale and kit?

    BRAVO. Excellent work.

    Just spectacular. One of the best models I've ever seen.

    A Roger Zimmerman masterpiece.

    For amazing brass work on the subtleties of car models, Roger Zimmerman is right up there with Gerald Wingrove. You can see his 1956 Continental in progress in the Large Scale Cars section of scalemotorcars.com

    Are you referring to me? I've posted the same complaint on the new site thread, but it also seems pertinent to this discussion and could possibly relate to others with the same issues. Isn't this thread about problems with posting images?

    Without beating this into the ground (well, maybe), this is now the only forum that doesn't work with my ancient Safari 4.1 browser, so I can't post either text or images from my iMac desktop, OSX 10.4.1. That's too old to use any other browser. I can enter text from my iPad, but images remain a problem just because I haven't figured it out (very labor-intensive and brain-challenging).

    Good to know. I've got tons of Phantom II reference including LHD, and I've ordered the Henley Roadster so I can make a better analysis.

    Superb, again. What did you use for the instrument bezels?

    Goes to credibility, Your Honor. Proves that editorial opinions are based on first-hand knowledge and skill. Conflict of interest? Well, there must me megabucks involved if you decided to jump on the MCM gravy train, so that's understandable  
     
    (As for the skill part, can someone fix these ridiculous strings of quotes?)

    That makes no sense. The people who publish should be able to conduct a master class in their subject.

    This just gets better and better, and may be your masterpiece.
