Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Hispano Suiza Roadster - By Bob Kelley

The model is of a 1934 Type 68-bis 2-seater drophead coupe with a Saoutchik body ['drophead' is British for 'ragtop' or convertible]. It is built from a Metal87 kit with detailed interior and modified Busch 'wire' wheels. All chrome is 'picked out' and light lenses are added using white glue and Tamiya clear red. Winner of the Vintage Car category at the 2001 West Coast Meet.
