1909 Rolls Royce
Model Team / Model
2 page manual. 1 model.
Price Range: Unknown (Got it as a gift)
Review Written: 11 October 1995 by Jacob Sparre Andersen
Special Features / Compatibility
1 white Technic axle
5 white horse cart style wheels
lots of 2 radius quarter round walls
Scale: Approximately 1:20
Certainly a nice way to build scale cars. If I should aquire this set again, the piece price should be competitive.
White 1909 Rolls-Royce (Silver Ghost?). Open car with horse-cart like wheels. One spare wheel. No active steering. UK model (availiable as continental?). Comes with a box to put the model on. Seems not to be intended to play with.
[I] made my cousin give it to me. It took some time, but I managed in the end. The car was just standing on a shelf. He had thrown the instructions away, but a phone call to Billund handled that. The next day there was an envelope with 2*4 bricks on it in the mail.
Now that I have the instructions, I'm going to take the car apart, wash the bricks and use them for something.
I got the set to give the bricks a good home.
Set Rating:Must-Have Lots of 2 knobs radius quarter round walls. 19 years old (better than most
Model Rating:Excellent Makes a lot out of a limited choice of elements. Looks like a Rolls.
Playability Rating:Fair It rolls. Made to be showed off, not to be played with.
Elements. Looks like the original. Good use of a limited choice of elements.
For exhibition only.
White horse cart style wheels
Rubber tires on the wheels
I collect bricks, build out of those I have, and always wish for more bricks. Usually the models get mixed up in the rest of the collection within days.
Have a look at my LEGO on the Web at "http://fys.ku.dk/~sparre/LEGO/index.uk.html"
I've just recently started buying other stuff than Town and Technic, but I did get a few space sets as a kid (well, as a _younger_ kid).
