Austin 7

Some pictures of 1st Corps/Tin Shed Gamers excellent Austin 7 that I've had painted up. My photos don't do the model and painting justice.

Very nice Ewan.
It's very rare I get to see stuff in anything other than grey.
So thanks for posting.

Mark.

Lovely! Really gives you an idea of how small and Austin 7 is too, I'm surprised 4 blokes can cram themselves in there.

I'm getting the impression there's also the potential for a Mad Max style game with all the 1st Corps cars out there...

That is cute. My grandfather drove the van body version of the Austin 7 for a number of years.

Didn't Germany make an Austin 7 under licence as a BMW Dixi? Slight change to grille and emblem, hey presto, another vehicle?
Cheers,
