Rolls Royce Phantom II 1:24 Scale Kit by Italieri
Posted by BuildingCars4Fun on Sunday, July 01, 2018 9:23 PM

Hello everyone,

it's been a while since my last post, thought I would post my latest build, this wonderful Rolls Royce Phantom II. 

The kit is excellent, no issues with fit, and all the panels and parts came up looking good with minmial trimming and sanding needed.

The interior lacks a bit of detail, but looks good with some after market extras (i added some flocking which made a big difference I think).

 

The paint used was Splashpaints Nasau Blue. I can't recommend their product highly enough. This is without sanding and without polishing. Their new clear coast is amazing. www.splash-paints.com if you want to pick some up (and no they don't sponsor me!)

I lowered the rear wheels a little, I think it makes the whole kit look a lot more sporty. The ride height made it look like a box on wheels!

Hope you like it, let me know what you think!

Very nice. Engine pics? You could use some gauge decals.

I totally agree. I even have a whole collection of gauge decals, but decided not to use them as I sort of liked the chrome. 

With hindsight, I shoudl totally have used them.... anyway, too late now, but lesson for the future! Thanks for your feedback.

Your Rolls is all CLASS, and the paintwork and colour enhance it.  Well done.  Cheers.

Since these cars were built to the Customer Specifications , you did an excellent replica . Yes , so few and far between were Cars sporting White Carpeting . A replica of a Chauffer driven and pampered exquisit aqsition of Glamor . I am so glad you went for the Premium (best and most costly) WW Tires . Only in Europe and other locatons where a steady rain and mud were prevelent did the Cheaper Black tires appear on Luxury Vehicles . KUDOS . It was sure brave of you to replicate the Polished Bonet , Wings and Running Boards . Thanx

Nice work on the Rolls. I have been very curious about this kit and should probably pick one up, as well as some other cool Heller classics. Yours turned out great. Very elegant. Nicely done.
