    I’m looking for a 20mm (or thereabouts) WW1 era open backed staff car model, to use as a Dodge Touring Car for the American ‘Pancho Villa’ Punitive Expedition c1916.

    Any suggestions for suitable models or die cast toy vehicles that I could use would be great.

    Thanks

    Jim

    Presumably you have seen the EWM model T’s and the similar one from Frontline/IT minis?

    They are not really staff car material tho’…….so I have some diecast cars en route , I’ll check them out for suitability at the end of the week……..

    Yes that was my first idea but they’re not really the same.

    My latest plan is to cut up some Corgi diecast Model T vans and rebuild the back end with plastic card…if I can’t find a better alternative?

    A couple of figures for scale, pretty close I reckon.Comes with a top too, a proper paint scheme and crew is all that’s needed.  I can spare a car or two for your expeditionary force!?

    Shipping across the pond and the poor exchange rates make Reviresco (all US goodies !) an expensive option……..
