Hi Daz and Slate

puppet sized (within a few mm) of size quoted in
philips and fleetwood owen auction books
they both stated slightly different size

have based on puppet sized and the smaller scale models
so not going to be 100% accurate, but hopefully will look
the part when completed

still got some shaping to do !

What's the grille made from - it looks like marble?

I think she'll look amazing when finished - and I wouldn't worry about the odd inaccuracy, every version of the on-screen car had minor differences.

Hey age9000, you should consider taking moulds of your project and casting some copies-help you recover your costs
I'm sure you'd have a few takers here-myself included.

I have a replica Parker who's just itching to get behind the wheel of a replica FAB 1

Cheers, Wayne
