Well ...

... I hadn't searched for any such 'Simca 5' related prototype before ! ???

But ...

... It seems THERE IS a prototype for EVERYTHING !! :thumb:





This is a Dutch Railways standard-gauge speeder/railcar from 1947 apparently.


The Tamiya 1:35 scale 'Simca 5' kit is small, simple & cheap ! :)

In that case I'LL HAVE A DOZEN SIR !! :bg:


Pimp that 1:35n2 railcar baby ! :P



:pimp:



Si.



I kinda like Martins 'on a flatcar' lash-up a bit better though maybe  .  .  .  L:

Si,I think that's a FIAT Topolino, rather than a Simca, n'est ce pas?

Hi Martin :wave:



Yeah ... I was gonna mention the Fiat 'Topolino'.

My history can be a bit scrappy at times ...

... it's what happens when you just look at the pictures ! :shocked:



The 'Simca 5' was a Fiat made outside of Italy, I believe.

Part Spanish part French ?

Or have I gone completely NUTZ ? :Crazy:



Anyhow the 'Topolino' & '5' are close enough to fool me.

Of course it was the 'Topolino' in the movie 'Roman Holiday' as well. :cool:





1948 model ?



:pimp:



Si.

Si, it was the Topolino on the back of most British big engined "stock" cars and early dragsters too!! Used to see them on Telly on rainy Saturdays when the ball kickers would get wet and Grandstand was short of showable sports.

Any small saloon with that rail treatment will look terrific!

Hi Martin :wave:

... try a slight engine UPGRADE !! :shocked:






:pimp:



Si.



'Grandstand' Eh!

Bring back Frank, all is forgiven ! ;)

Haha!  That's better!  Frank Bough, eh?  His habit ruined Nationwide. I liked that.  The One show is drivel by comparison.
I can remember reading American mags. full of those kind of pictures instead of ghastly french lessons.

Quite so ! ;)

I couldn't resist this one !!

Perhaps I need a 'Simca-5' ultra-FAST ! 1/4-mile machine ... ?

... NOT a rusty ol' railcar after all. :P






:pimp:

Hello SI, as I always said: there`s a prototype for everything. I prefer peglesham version but 4-2-0 for better tracking.
Happy modeling:glad::rah::old dude:
Want to see the results casting on the rails

Hi Kurt :wave:



I agree very much on the 'prototype for everything' thinking ! :thumb:

I love your builds along those lines.


Thanks for the encouragement. :bg:





An interesting chassis picture from this type of car.

The Tamiya 1:35 version is a pretty nice model kit.



:moose:
