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 Hand built available ABC330 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 kit parts are very well thought out with most of the mechanical parts in white metal, the resin body cast with the roof separate, resin tracks and some very fine photo-etch. The castings all have flash to remove but the overall quality looks good and with care this should be a fun project. The instructions show images of the real vehicle in the Gorky museum along with CAD images from the kits design and some sub-assembly photos to clarify fit. A great little project.
