Anglia 100E gasser

Hi

I have just finished this very involving project. It is based on a resin body bought on eBay. Everything else had to be kitbashed or scratchbuilt. I used parts from a Kayser Heny J & a lot of aftermarket parts.

It's far from perfect but I like it very much Big Smile!

Wow! What a crazy machine. With that short wheelbase and high stance, it would take balls the size of church bells to drive it. Very cool build. Nice details. Love the cool little Anglia shell. Well done.

Thank you !

Bainford, you are right, these cars were probably freaky to pilot, to say the least !

I think that it is a pleasant change from the earlier Anglia gassers that we often see (such as the Revell Skipper's Critter).

Bama Jama, I think that these English Fords were not very common in USA back then.

I may have had the only one. My hometown is an Air Force town and my dad got it in a trade from an Airman for an MGA he had at the time.
