This little creature is a 1950s Nash Metropolitan, which was
an American design built by Austin at Longbridge and shipped back over to
the States! After a few years in production, with modifications and developements
along the way, Austin obtained the rights to distribute them to the rest
of the world, and many were seen on Britain's streets. This model was made
from an R.Parker kit.
This stylish little beauty is a Morgan Plus 4 Plus - a 1/43 scale
model (so suitable for an O-gauge layout), built from a T.W. Collection kit. Apparently after being launched
in 1963, it simply didn't catch on with the Morgan-buying public, so only
26 were ever produced. For my birthday in 2017, my wife took me to the
Morgan car factory in Malvern, where they had one of these on display - I wonder
what happened to the other 25 !
