This is the RR Phantom lll model with the driver compartment roof removed. I replaced Oddjob with one of my sons GI Joes, as I was unable to locate an Oddjob figure. If you look closely you will see the Spirit of Ecstasy Flying Lady setting atop the radiator. The license plate for this car is AUl. For those of you who do not know, the symbol for gold is AU and this is Goldfinger’s number l car. The wheels are sporting the new wide whitewall tires that are the rage in America. The area behind the driver is inclosed so the passenger can enjoy complete privacy and comfort on long journeys through the Swiss Alps. A small desk is also provided in this compartment, in the event a check needs to be written to cover a golfing bet.

You have made great furniture but I like the toy models the most. Glad this contribution has some more pics than the first. Well done Ed.

Great job F’H’, great detail… neat hooded take.

You may be forgiven in turning a GI into a baddie though he may need a few meals of Sushi…

Where/how did you get/create the SoE “figurine”... been anxious to source such figurines for some of my models.
