Detailed Model Cars

 The Continental Express

This model began as a Pocher Rolls-Royce "Torpedo" kit.  We start by lowering the body on the chassis to align the louvers

on the hood with those on the cowl or scuttle sides.  On this model, the customer wanted a more accurate replica of a Continental

specification Phantom II.  Continental Rolls-Royces varied, but most did not have side-mounted spare wheels, so on this model we

installed a single rear-mounted spare wheel.  This required a mounting system that allows the spare wheel to pivot downward, allowing

 access to the tailgated trunk area.  In addition to working brakes and headlights, this model features pedal-activated brake lights,

 lighted instruments, myrtle-burl woodwork, an articulated rear windshield, metal framed working side windows, pivoting windshield,

working engine control levers,  and a fully detailed trunk compartment.  If you are tired of looking at an orange and gray Pocher torpedo,

let us transform your model into a miniature automobile that you will be proud to display.

The digital photos on this site are unaltered.  Well, 'unaltered' may be a bit of an exaggeration, but for the most part they bear

some semblance to the models depicted.  If you see dust, the image is dead nuts on.  If there is no dust, it is something of a crapshoot, but

captures the essence of the model without the distractions of  background clutter and pet hair and  the odd insect wing or bird dropping.
