Ay Caramba - another faction... might they possibly do for the Tarahumara/Raramuri indigenous people who now inhabit Copper Canyon and mountainous parts of Chihuahua? I can't wait to see them... keep up the great work Martin!

Some thoughts for buyers of the Dodge T3 tourer.

The Dodge car is the 1914 version.  Called a 30-35. This means it has between 30 and 35 HP. About the same as a modern 300cc motorcycle. It also has 3 gears and some brakes on the rear wheels.
For its time it was a very reliable and nice car. Later 1916 versions look about the same.

The US bought about 30 for its expedition into Mexico.
The car was also common amongst wealthy Mexicans (farmers/merchants)  and US citizens on the border.
Sadly it was the car that Pancho got assassinated in after the revolution.

The car was a light khaki colour in US service and black or dark brown in civilian purchase.
Wheels are natural wood.

It is a very small car compared to WW2 and 1950s cars.

I am going to do mine dry brushed in dirt/dust so that is does not look like black blob.

Stunning figures Martin. Mine haven't arrived yet though. Perhaps I should order some next week.

It is sad to see standards slipping, John.

No ned John.

Dodge tourer looks nice, how big is it? Could I use it for SCW? Does the driver have a separate head?

Looked on the PP website and found the answers to most of my own questions.

Best wishes,
Martin Buck

Just out of interest what vintage is the Crossley staff car by comparison?

Crossley Motors was an English motor vehicle manufacturer based in Manchester, England. It produced approximately 19,000 cars from 1904 until 1938, 5,500 buses from 1926 until 1958, and 21,000 goods and military vehicles from 1914 to 1945.
Great set of models from the 'Workshop' this week.
