ABC Brianza - Rolls Royce 20/25 Shooting Brake 1:43 model

Rolls Royce 20/25 Shooting Brake model by ABC Brianza

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
ABC list this car as a Phantom 1 but a little research shows that it is not and that it was built on the rather less grand 20/25 chassis in 1933 by Rippon Brothers. Even if it isn’t a Phantom, it’s still a handsome beast. We opened the kit first on these two and first impressions are very good. The main body casting is very clean and crisp and the use of photo-etch for the wooden framing works really well. The hand built model is neatly built, shows that the shape is pretty accurate and the ‘wood’ does look good when completed. Comparing the built with the photos of the real car that are supposed to serve as instructions does leave us rather frustrated though. Many of the small details have just been ignored completely and checking the Italian only parts list with the aid of a dictionary, highlights this. Some items, such as the wooden ribbing inside the roof we can understand, but the rear view mirrors and plenty of other exterior details we don’t. As far as we can see there are no bumpers, nor mention of them in the kit, though the real car had them and the built does too. This could so easily have been a fantastic model but doesn’t quite get there.

About ABC Brianza

Well cast kits, usually resin but occasionally metal, with a good level of p/e detail. Accuracy sometimes questionable but usually pretty good. Good clear instructions. Built models usually to a very high standard. Larger scale kits for the experienced builder only. Made in Italy.
