Since our good friend Ken and Morris fanhas returned, and Boedans recent addition of his M/C AM DB9 reminded me how much I like the budget line from M/C, I thought I would post this one since it deal with both subjects.
First off, a huge thanks to my good buddy, Sir Gary for the wonderful gift of this car :cheers

M/C has a nice model on their hands with a few misses. The shape of the rear window is the biggest issue but it is not really a big deal to me as its not like i see a 1:1 of this everyday to remind me. The car is lacking some of the finer details of the usual M/C offerings but it still has great quality to it.
Very happy with the result and cost/detail ratio on this one :joy

when i was younger and fish and chips came served in newspaper we used to get the lady behind the counter to double wrap them and then put them in a small cradle that we had pop-rivited inside the engine bay....so much space and it kept our fish and chips warm till we got home after a night on the beer :giggle

Jeff,
the right word for your new model is "LOVELY"!!!
Your pics were definitive to my decision to have one.
:cheers

:bestpost :giggle

I agree with your reservations Jeff, but what the heck, it is a great 'budget' model of a 'classis Englsh' car. All you need to do is to get the Tourer and the Woody

Great pictures by the way

Thanks, Guys, it really is a gem :cheers

JRO I am not surpised at all that you would like this car!

Ken I already have the Traveller, not sure about the cabrio.

Dave Nothing wrong with adding a few "common" cars to your growing collection.

Very true, but I think the only 'classic' cars that really do it for me are the 'real' classics, the likes of the E-type and 300SL. Which aren't too common I guess! I don't wish to underestimate the difference cars like the Minor made to people and families, but they're just not special enough to take up my space and budget at the moment.

The model depicts a 1959 version, with a 948cc OHV engine turning out a whopping 37BHP!!!

In its various forms it also powered the Mini; BMC 1100/1300; Austin A30, A35, A40 Farina, Allegro, Metro, Maestro, Montego; Morris Minor, Marina, Ital; MG Midget; Austin-Healey/Austin Sprite
