Rolls Royce Phantom II 1:24 Scale Kit by Italieri
Posted by BuildingCars4Fun on Sunday, July 01, 2018 9:20 PM

Hello everyone,

it's been a while since my last post, thought I would post my latest build, this wonderful Rolls Royce Phantom II. 

The kit is excellent, no issues with fit, and all the panels and parts came up looking good with minmial trimming and sanding needed.

The interior lacks a bit of detail, but looks good with some after market extras (i added some flocking which made a big difference I think).

 

The paint used was Splashpaints Nasau Blue. I can't recommend their product highly enough. This is without sanding and without polishing. Their new clear coast is amazing. www.splash-paints.com if you want to pick some up (and no they don't sponsor me!)

Hope you like it, let me know what you think!

She's a Beauty all right !

I "love" the way you built it with some of the window's part way down, Nice touch ! And the color's are "Awesome" !

But I'm with Tanker-Builder, .... what's in the trunk ... Moonshine ???

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Nice!  Love those old classics.  Old Monograms are common at flea markets, some Italeri, and even an occasional JoHan.  I have quite a few in my stash, and always enjoy the builds.  All three brands yield pretty nice results.

Ok so there is a reason.

Actually this was the only fit issue On the kit The axel when all glued together and to the chassis is about 2 mm too far forward... so attaching the wheels meant they didn’t align to the arch. 

So I chopped the wheels and lowered the back of the car. 

Mystery solved! And I think it looks a bit sportier lowered like this...

So I chopped the wheels and lowered the back of the car. 

I like it. A simple fix for a manufacturing defect.

And if you can find an Alfred Hitchcock figure, just set him in the backseat.

( You can use any "Obese" figure you can find. I just mentioned Alfred because he fit's the time period. )

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".
