Goldfinger's Rolls Royce - type, dimensions or plans anywhere?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for info on the Rolls Royce that was used in the film Goldfinger.  I'd like to do a scratchbuild in either 1:144 scale.  Can anyone here please help with a source for plans and photo's etc?

 

cheers

Mike, if I may, why choose to scratch in such small scales? Hard to get even basic detail in 1/24...

Thanks Pete.  I know very little about vehicles but I do like to have them in the background of my dioramas.  At least I now know what the car is called and can look for more details.

Hi Codger,

my main scale for building kits is 1:144 scale, however some my my finished models can look rather plane plain on their own and so I like to add a little to the surrounding.  Unfortunately, there aren't many civillian vehicles available 1:144 scale and therefore I usually have to resort to N scale (1:148 to 1:160); hence why I wish to scratchbuild this Rolls.

 

Here's an example of a 1:144 scale Short Belfast with a scratchbuilt Bloodhound missile and launcher.  The Landrovers are 1:148 scale Corgi's.

This is a 1:144 scale Short C class Empire flying boat utilizing American and Japanese 1:160 scale trucks as background activity.

cheers.

Lovely models and highly skilled but I'd rather see your car work in larger scales. I realize now you want the cars as 'props' in your displays.

Thanks John, that looks close enough and I could even afford that model!

 

cheers.

Exactly!  That's where I took the inspiration from and it should make a nice little diorama.
