The Lansdowne Barker Bentley: Can anyone share information on the real car?
Maybe Mike Coupe or David Roberts or someone from Brooklin can give us a bit more background about the actual car. Is it a one-off, or did Barker produce this body type in a small batch? Is there a Barker design number? Where is the actual car now? What is the chassis number? Perhaps there's a picture in Johnny Green's book or the Michael Ellman-Brown book? It IS an unusual color. So, was it always yellow? What was the ownership history? Does it have an interesting background? Current owner, or is it confidential? I never got the full skinny about Lansdowne 97 either.

Information like this really helps us collectors. And since I have to research all the models in my collection before I can catalog them, I need that basic information.

Putting in a little slip of paper with a paragraph about the car in the packaging with the model, would be a great move for Brooklin on these Special Edition Bentleys. Spa Croft does something like this. I guess the basic suggestion here is, for the Special Edition stuff, when you're modeling a very specific car, don't make your model a mystery.

Look how crisp, clean and subtle the lines are on that model. That is one finely tooled master. Who gets the credit?
