Rolls Royce Armored Car - 1914

Hello all,

Time to start a new project thread. This is the Resicast Rolls Royce Armored Car, circa 1914....yep, The Great War!

This is a full resin kit, with some photo etch details and a larger etched sheet for the spoked wheels - a quite impressive kit with well over 100 parts.

Work begins as usual with the chassis and engine. Looking forward in the instructions it appears that consideration is made for displaying the bonnet in either the open or closed position.

At this point I have not yet decided whether to display the engine in the final presentation. However, using the supplied extra CD photographs as a guide I have decided to add some basic wiring and detail to the engine and firewall.

This is a nice shot showing the detail to the underside of the chassis.

Well, there's a start...more to follow soon.

Some "basic" wiring he says....

I struggled to just scratch a storage bin last week. Took me like four takes to get it somewhat right.

You guys just blow me away with your control over these materials in such miniature.

I always wanted to build one of these old Rolls-Royce ACs. This looks like a very nice kit, nice fit, clean with no warts or pits. I haven't seen a Resicast kit, so this is looking good.
