Wings of The Great War WW10301
Rolls-Royce Armored Car Display Model
RNAS, #8-C-2

Limited Edition

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Rolls-Royce Armored Car   2.75"   1"

Developed in Britain during World War I, the Rolls Royce Armoured Car - of which only 120 were manufactured - first saw combat action in early 1915. Though it was poorly suited for the muddy trench conditions of the Western Front, it proved adept on battlefields in the Near East. Indeed, Lawrence of Arabia called the Rolls Royce vehicle "more valuable than rubies." More than 70 remained in service at the outbreak of World War II. Made of resin, this 1:72 scale display model replicates the combat car and features a realistic Vickers machine gun, running boards, a colorful flag, treaded tires (including side-mounted spare), and a display base.

Wings of The Great War

The Wings of The Great War range presents affordable, ready-made resin models of WWI aircraft. Each model is crafted and painted by hand and features a unique pivoting stand that allows the model to be displayed at a variety of different attitudes.

Wings of The Great War display airplanes feature:

  • Molded resin construction with no assembly required.
  • Fixed, non-rotating propellers and wheels.
  • Poseable presention stand to display the aircraft "in flight".

Why Resin?
It's very expensive to produce die-casting molds, and manufacturers must sell a large number of models from each mold in order to recoup development costs. Some subjects are so obscure that it's difficult to sell large quantities of them. Resin-casting is a much simpler and less expensive process, and manufacturers can use it to make limited runs of models that can't be cost effectively manufactured in diecast metal. With resin-cast models, collectors can add fascinating and unusual subjects to their collections without the time and difficulty of assembling and painting a model kit.
