Detailed Model Cars

Double-Six Portraits

The huge driving light, an exaggeration just like everything else on the Double-Six, 

steers with the front wheels.  Anyone with such a car would want to be affiliated with

numerous clubs, hence the badges.



Amazing as it seems, there are actually some precedents for having tandem engines in

a Rolls-Royce chassis.  In this case, the two engines are specifically designed to show

off after-market details.  There is a complete spare set of spark plugs (twenty-four plugs)

mounted on the firewall, twelve per side, for a grand total of 48 plugs for the entire engine

compartment.  The hood side panesl are spliced kit components, and the hood tops are scratch-built

from brass.

The profile is just right, and the Pocher sedanca fenders--based on a Barker design==look perfect.

The delicate bright trim on the hood sides with the double-six logo is sterling silver wire.

The roll-up roof can be closed, and the visor was later painted transparent blue. Swivelling spotlight works.

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.
