Classic car enthusiasts will already have snapped up this superb Oxford model in 1:76 scale, so we are delighted to introduce it in our 1:43 scale collection, where its high level of detail can be appreciated even more.
Railway enthusiasts will be well acquainted with the celebrated railway photographer Ivo Peters, BEM (1915-1989) who spent his life in Bath, Somerset and devoted a lot of his time photographing his beloved Somerset and Dorset Railway. Educated at Cambridge, he was also interested and took part in road racing events. He served in WWII, continuing afterwards in the Royal Observer Corps, during which time he was awarded the British Empire Medal. In 1948, his interests returned to serious railway photography and apart from his love of the S & DR, his work was not restricted to that area and he toured the length and breadth of the country recording the steam railways, where he and his 4.25 litre Mk. VI Bentley, NHY 581 were a familiar lineside sight.
The Bentley Mk. VI 4-door standard steel sports saloon was the first post-war luxury car from Bentley Motors (1931) Ltd., and was also the first car from Rolls-Royce with all steel coachwork to be both manufactured and assembled in the factory in Crewe, Cheshire. Between 1946 and 1952, over 5200 of these very expensive Mk. VI standard steel sports saloon cars were produced.
Our Oxford replica, with registration number NHY 581, comes in Midnight Blue with detailed features masked in silver, including the door handles, radiator grille, wheel centres, bumpers, light surrounds and the prestigious Bentley badge. The contrasting interior is moulded in pale grey with blue flooring, brown dashboard and black steering wheel.
