It's such a delightful model, I've not had the heart to do a repaint, but the original will certainly be staying black!


They recently produced a model of the Riley Adelphi. The car they based it on was black with cream wheels, the model was grey with blue wheels but they painted one in the original colours specially for the owner.


Never thought to ask that! I suspect the production run was finished by the time I got mine, as there was a photo of a sea of little green Railtons on their website on the assembly line a good month or so before I knew about it....

As far as I now they didn't do them in black so it looks to have already been messed with...

Oxford Diecast have the Jaguar SS in 1/43 & 1/76 scale:

Not identical, but close..........


Thanks Mike,

Yes, that's the coach-built predecessor to my car. There are also some models of the Mk IV but it's really the Science Museum car that I'm after.

I thought I'd bump this thread up again, to see what other toy versions of actual vehicles owned could be added in here?

For my part, this turned up a couple of years back:


The roundabout way by which it found its way to me, from the other side of the world, is described here: http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/dodge-model.htm

The Austin J40 pedal car is really just a kid-sized model of my Austin A40 tourer! (Well, almost anyway!)

I have a 1/43 scale model of my 1932 Austin Seven RN long wheelbase de-luxe box sedan.

What a great story and as you say it almost certainly would not have found you without the internet.

Thanks John. Very similar but that's the previous model to my car (with the spare wheel on the running board.)
