Finally bought something today after almost 7 months. A 1/43 scale Daimler limo that was very popular among the royalties, statesmen and hotel chauffeur services. I would love one in 1/18 scale but no one has made one so far and i've been eyeing on Oxford range of vintage Rolls/Bentleys for quite a while now and finally decided to take the plunge. It started when I "accidentally" bid and won the Bentley Continental Fastback last week and I started looking into their back catalogue and learned of this particular model. It just so happens that a local hobby shop has a black one in stock and i dont have to fork out another 10 bucks for postage so I went ahead and get it.

What inspired me to get this particular model along with most classic Rolls and Bentleys were the Hong Kong action cinema from the 80s.. The successful and wealthy triad heads and the godfathers often travel in Rolls or Bentleys. And one of the movies with young Stephen Chow happened to have a dramatic with a Silver Shadow and DS420. I never actually watch that movie entirely and I was only drawn to this scene LOL.
