Taxi de la Marne by ICM
Posted by cwalker3 on Thursday, November 10, 2022 12:28 PM

This was my first ICM kit and I was pleasantly surprised at the fit and detail of the kit. It is tiny, so the fiddly bits are many, but once its done it looks pretty good. I need to put another coat of Glosskote on, but other than that I'm calling it finished.

Edited to say I forgot the spare tire! Didn't catch it until I looked at the thread.

I built the ICM Paris taxi a couple of years ago and loved it but my wife accidentally knocked it off my desk and it was destroyed. Looking at your work has me wanting to order a new kit and make it again. I should add your work looks far better than my effort. Thanks for sharing.

Now that is cool ! I love the old antiques and classics. It's what attracted me to the hobby in the first place back around 1957. And this model gives off that same aroma stirring those old juices.

Similar to the one that was lost on the Titanic?

Good catch! It was very similar indeed, the Titanic's being the slightly later 'stretch' Town Car version, the 1912 Type CB Coupé de Ville.

Never considered the conversion possiblities before...but now you've got me thinking.... Wink

Okay!

 What scale is that beauty! I just love those old cars. Something about them that says "Class"

That would be 1/35.

I built the 1:25 scale version.  It is identical except for scale.  Loved building it.  A bit finicky because of small parts (lots of them) but it turned out okay.

 That looks great, especially in such small scale. ICM has got some REALLY cool kits and they are PACKED with details.
