Garry c posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - ArmourMany are started, few are finished. Here is one of the lucky ones. The Roden Rolls Royce Armored Car The fit was challenging to say the least. The front fenders were shortened so the ramps under the running boards would fit. 4 pieces of plastic were stacked, drilled and cut to make the plates on the radiator doors. The drivers window was opened. Transmission sump, starter, and generator were made of styrene rod and strip. The bonnet was opened,the side panels were scored at the seam and snapped cleanly. Braces for the front and the operating lever for the radiator doors were styrene angle strip, rod, and sheet. More styrene, battery box, rivet strips, and pistol port levers Added operating rod for front visor,the instrument panel was drilled and a styrene sheet painted black and scratched with a blade to simulate gauges was glued behind. Lewis Mg was drilled out. A pair of handles were added to the Vickers Mg. Every part needed to be cut,filed,sanded,filled or shimmed to fit, not an easy build but a satisfying one. The fact that I finished one is icing on the cake. Recommended for masochists. Garry c
