Tally Ho Rolls Royce Armoured Car
This model was the first one I bought for Tally Ho! It has been stuck in a box for about twenty years..
I can't recall the manufacturer, but they were small and relatively new, I even remember discussing licensing the models for a commercial version of Tally Ho!
The Rolls-Royce armoured car was a British armoured car developed in 1914 and used in World War I and in the early part of World War II.
At the outbreak of World War II, 76 vehicles were in service. They were used in operations in the Western Desert, in Iraq, and in Syria. By the end of 1941, they were withdrawn from the frontline service as modern armoured car designs became available.
This is a 1920s version of the Armoured Car. The model consists of a resin armoured hull, metal chassis, wheels, turrets and fiddly headlights.
Despite the age of the model, this is a well crafted sculpture.
The model went together very easily, the parts were a good fit. I glued the armoured car hull to the chassis. The wheels and axels fitted very nicely into the respective holes.
I did check a few reference pictures to confirm that I had aligned the hull right and the spare wheels in the right place.
