Which of these would have been used in Ireland during the IWI and Civil War?
I guess the first one?

The first one... the 2nd is a 1924 pattern, I believe.

But this may help

Yes, Willie, the first one. However, the same model with solid wheels (like on the centre model) would also have been seen in Ireland during the Anglo-Irish War and Civil War:



This is Sliabh na mBan, one of the 14 Rolls Royce armoured cars left to the National Army post-Independence. She's still in working order  ;)

we have the smooth solid wheeled model as pictured as well.  It's actually the default wheels that come with the early model, and the wire wheeled version are a different skew.

Very nice work. I'm somewhat attached to my Lledo versions but these are rather good.

At the risk of appearing a pedant, the earlier wartime 1914 pattern Rolls had a shallower turret shape than it's successor. It's pretty apparent in those rare photos that show them side by side but I doubt many people would notice.

Now all you need are the Fordson chassis version and the quite dissimilar India pattern and you've (almost) covered the range. I presume the chassis is solid on top? Lots of Great War Era photos show RRs with the upper turret plates removed. I'm sure one of those would be a solid seller.
