Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Quasar - By Daniel Vinay

Here's another look at one of what French modeler Daniel Vinay calls his series of vehicles which are rare, bizarre or seldom produced in 1/87 scale. Shown above is a model based on the city car of Vietnamese designer Quasar Khanh, built in Great Britain in 1968. The vehicle, constructed of glass panels framed in steel, was equipped with an 1100cc BMC engine. Following the fashion of the time, the seats were inflated plastic cushions. The colors selected were also in the fad of the day. Daniel notes, "As a young groom at the time, all my furniture was also in this style!" Also shown in Photo Gallery 184.
