This is a model of the rather obscure Romfell armored car. Not a lot is known about it. At least one was built for sure on what is believed to be a Mercedes chassis. There are photos of what could be a possible second vehicle, or it just maybe the original body installed on a different chassis. It’s service record is also sketchy. It is known that it served in Italy and also against Russia. Though not a historically significant vehicle, it was very innovative and the body was quite futuristic looking. The kit is from Copper State Models in 1/35th scale, and goes together really well. The interior is very visible if all of the doors are left open, but the detail provided, though well done, is rather sparse. CSM does provide a line drawing which, with some scratch-building, allows you add more if you so desire. The vehicle had several fuel tanks on the side walls up against the roof. I added one that is visible up behind the driver’s seat. I also added one under the cowling against the firewall, just visible through the open doors. The model can be displayed with the hood side panels off and the engine is very complete and nicely detailed. I just added the spark plug wires.
The figures are resin, from a company called ‘The Bodi’. They are available separately, or as a pair. A little clean up was required, but they went together with no putty needed. I added the straps for the Hussar’s saber. The decals were from Cartograph and settled down nicely. I did apply Solvaset to help them snuggle down over some of the details. Thanks for looking, all comments and questions are welcome.
