A quiet model on a quiet day, being my most recent completion. (PICs)

Many of us might not recognize this British Riley at first glance, as few were exported to the U.S.

This 1:1 was produced about 1962, and the Mikansue kit is probably from the early to mid 1990's. It's white metal and 1:43 in scale.

The gang seems to like it, but I hope the cops don't ticket it for lack of license tags.

Base plate info for those interested, and, yes, I exchanged those soft Mikansue tires for more modern version of the same size. And I resisted shifting to white walls, too.

I have enjoyed my renewed interest in building these 1:43 models over the last couple of years, and I have several others in the planning/ considering stages. I'm no professional and sometimes get the quivers, but it's fun and reminds me of those Revell Highway Pioneers that I built as a kid. Enjoy!
