    Mike: if you send me a drawing of the RR wheels for this puppy, I may be able to noodle them up for you.

    PM me with the drawings, scale, etc.

    Mike: did this vehicle run on rails only, or was it a 'convertible" like current MOW trucks are now? This is important!

    PM me if you wish!

    I could be wrong, but I think there is some confusion here over the abbreviation RR. (Rolls Royce vs railroad).

    Rolls Royce Armoured Car

    I can do a "fast and dirty" build of your Rolls Royce if you can wait awhile....

    This will be a black and white one-off card build at 1:35 scale off your drawing, once I know what scale your drawing is.....

    Mike:

    I really have to laugh at mistaking RR (= Rolls Royce) for RR = (Rail Road). This is definitiely one laff that El Fisho will wear unto the next world.....

    Give me a few days.

    I thinkx I can help you here....

    The 05/1987 Maly is the WZ.28. WAK also has a WZ.28
