K & R Replicas, Max Kernick
John Roberts, Correct me if I am wrong. Wasn't John Roff a partner of Max Kernick back in the 1970's. Max was the K in K & R Replicas, plus Abingdon Classics (Max may have split up with John at this time), and then Top Marques. They were making MG's, Triumphs, Alvis, Austin Healey's, Ford Pilots, H.R.G., Singer as well as other British cars, before his beautiful Rolls Royce and Bentley models. I have somewhere between 50 and 100 models across all three lines of models. Max is a true craftsman. His models have definitely increased in value over their original price, which was quite expensive, but worth it.
