Steam Driven Prime Mover



My Blackshort Legion has acquired a steam-driven Foden lorry.

The model is diecast metal by Matchbox and is loosely 1:43 and avaiable for small change still in the box in eBay.

I keep buying these things to kitbash but they are so nice that I can't bring myself to apply a hacksaw.

  1. I used to have a large collection of these lovely matchbox models.

    1. They are still available second hand and people have kept them like new.

  2. They look too good to be 'converted' IMHO and what a great resource for this period. Sadly there is little like this in 1/144th scale.

    1. Very little in 1/144. Quite a lot in 1/76 HO.
