Description
Detailed railway scale diecast models celebrating the spirit of 1945. Austin Tilly: celebrating the wartime service of the Hon. Second Subaltern Princess Elizabeth, later Queen Elizabeth II. Captures Austin Tilly M1136086, complete with L-plate, inspired by the vehicles from the Princess’s time stationed at the Mechanical Training Centre in Camberley, Surrey. With pressures upon manufacturing, domestic car designs were adapted into Light Utility Cars; becoming affectionately known as ‘Tillys’. Having insisted on joining the Auxiliary Territorial Service (A.T.S.) when she became 18 in 1945, Princess Elizabeth passed out as a fully qualified driver, later becoming a Junior Commander. Humber Snipe Tourer: celebrating the ‘Victory Car’ used by General Montgomery and Winston Churchill in the VE-Day parades of 1945. Captures the open top Humber Snipe Tourer ‘Victory Car’; the sister car to ‘Old Faithful’, two cars specifically built for General Montgomery with mine-proof floors and long-range fuel tanks. The model is complete with folded hood, military insignia and authentic colour scheme.
