1931 Rolls-Royce - Henley
The "All Brinkworth Model" is just that .... a model
that was built in total by our own team of model builders, without the use of
any parts, manufactured by other model companies.
The main section of the body and wings are from the same molds as our earlier
Rolls-Royce models, except for the engine cover. These later models
did not have any engine detail so the hood did not open.
In outward appearance, the later versions were almost
identical except for the wheels. Our wheel spokes were a little finer than the Pocher,
but were still all individually set in place. Our chassis reflected the American version of the Phantom II, with the
slightly different exhaust system, and stone guard panels on the underside of
the engine compartment. There were no moving parts on these models, but a mirrored base reflected
underside detail. Both left and right
hand drive versions were made for this particular Japanese client, who had four
of these 1:8 scale models built for his automotive dealership showroom in Tokyo,

built, and it sat for quite a long time waiting for us to finish it.
On completion it was sold instantly,
so all we have to show now, are these photographs. I wish we could
have kept it around here a little longer but it was
not to be ....
