    Some years ago, I downloaded a model of this unique and historic vehicle. However after learning that website was a pirate site, I destroyed the patterns, never having constructed the model. The pirate site was shut down shortly thereafter. From time to time, I look for a legal copy of the model. I think the patterns I had downloaded are from an old issue of Maly Modelarz. Does anyone know of a model of this vehicle. I beleive it to be a 1915 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost (specially modified for winter use in Russia).

    Its a 1914 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost.
    The car belonged to the Russian Czar.
    After the Revolution in 1917 Lenin gave the order to changes to leave in such a way as it is now.
    He wanted to be also in the winter surely on the way.
    The model appeared 04/1970 and 08/1977 with Maly Modelarz, it´s in 1/25 Scale

    The car is displayed at the moscow museum

    I believe that it was such a kit in the Czech magazine ABC.
