ABC Brianza - Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Kegresse 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Rolls Royce Silver Ghost Kegresse 1921 Lenin Kit available BRK43330 A Rolls Royce seems a rather unusual choice of vehicle for the man whose ideology included the ‘classless society’ but at the time the Silver Ghost was as much about robustness and reliability as it was luxury and following the revolution, Russia’s industry was rebuilding. It was a local factory which converted the car for winter use at the Gorky dacha on the outskirts of Moscow, a Kegresse halftrack conversion being fitted at the rear and skis at the front. The completed model makes for an imposing piece and for the most part the finish on our sample is very good. One of the smaller side windows doesn’t fit very well but the rest of the small detail trims have been carefully placed. The roof is wrapped in a leatherette fabric to add realism and contrasts well with the smooth grey paint on the bodywork. The rear track assemblies are quite heavy and the model is carefully packed to keep these stable, but care will be needed if removing from the case for display.
