My most recent build, Tamya's 1/24 Lotus Seven converted to a Caterham Prisoner edition with a twist. Using the latest Transkit from Motobitz and reference from the book by Chris Rees I have built my interpretation of this car, fitted with cycle wings as opposed to the wings of the kit/original. The green is Tamiya LP IJN Racing Green 😉  with Pearl Clear, Yellow Tamiya TS97 Pearl. The last photo includes an earlier build of the Moke from the TV show.

Very nicely done Mark - I like the Japanese Navy paint! :)

 

That transkit looks really good, much prefer the cycle wings to the ones in the Tamiya kit.

Yep, the 7 looks fantastic. 

The chrome sticker for the rear wings 

are great. I was very surprised to find them when I opened my box of the transkit 

And of course the colour scheme real classic

Looks fantastic in every detail.   But the standout bits have to be bonnet and prisoner alloys.  I only hope mine comes out this well when I build it - Andy

I'd have to agree that it looks good with the cycle wings. Very nice build which is a good advert for the transkit.

I used to watch the show when babysitting for my Aunt & Uncle on their, wait for it, Colour Telly!

The model looks great and so does the Moke.

I think I read somewhere that they used at least three cars.

They apparently used to 'borrow' whatever they could from the factory.

If only I could figure out what the series was about I'd be a happier man.

Apparently, in an interview, Patrick McGoohan , who was behind 'The Prisoner' said that they hadn't a clue what was going on either, and that the end was cobbled together as a conclusion because the studio decided to can it..

How true that is, I don't know.

 

Cheers,

Alan.

That is a really lovely model, but... flared wings; every time.

Thanks, it's a good job we are still allowed to have a choice 😉 We could all end up just building the same model of a bicycle 😬

According to the Lotus 7 register website, to model one of the KAR120Cs you would need to swap the front brakes for the drum set up!

Lovely model of a Caterham 7 by the way!
