1/24 Bentley Blower

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, 

Been a while since I’ve posted here but looks like this website is much more iPhone friendly to use now! This is my 1/24 Bentley Blower by Heller Keller that I just finished. Not everything on this kit fit how it was supposed to... or even remotely close at times... but I did what I could and here it is:

Thanks for looking!

Very nicely done and photographed.  Sure captures the look of the Bentley and I like the way you did the fabric body.  Knockoffs?

Absolutely stunning build you have there, Steve...... and as Gary mentioned, well photographed also. You seem to be missing some knock-off hub caps on the road wheels, but other than that you have done a fine job on the Bentley Blower....... I have one that is still in the box waiting to be built, but I think it is the Revell version and not the Heller version.

Eye candy has me wanting more like a shot of the underside, one of the dash and one of the other side of the engine.

Looks great, man that car is such a beast.  It must be a real struggle to drive one of those today.  Anyway,  this looks really well done.

Thank you very much! That is correct there were knock off center caps however... I lost them somehow haha :D

That is a really nice build Steve. A set of photo etched wires would really set it off.  I'm not sure if the Herb Deeks wires would be large enough in diameter though.

Sharp looking Bentley, I've considered this kit a few times but never pulled the trigger on it.  Nicely done!

Very impressive model, Steve - an enviable workbench, too !

The hardest part will be to fix the 4 mudguards in their correct position with these tiny brackets - to me this seems to be the fiddliest thing with this kit - am I right?

Revell did re-pack the heller molds and reissue it under their own label.

Thanks, Helmut....... I am pleased to hear that the Revell version is basically the same car as the Heller version..... so I can now look forward to building this one.

Steve, the mudguard brackets do sound rather difficult...... and I shall look out for that problem when I get round to building this wonderful Bentley. ( can't open the box yet, because I am just starting the build of a resin '68 Pontiac Parisienne in 1:24 scale )
