There are slight differences in the body but overall it is the same. The turret shape is slightly different. Yes they have the solid wheels but those are no good for the one I am making. I am going to try something but I cant tell you what just yet.

The experiment worked out and looks good. No pics yet but if I can navigate the stairs I hope to prime this tonight.

I like it. Mighty big knock out marks under those fenders!

Yes they were. A couple of places they had the huge pins also which are annoying. But overall its a nice fast fun build. Someone skillful could really go to town on this one as there is detail missing. But for a no stress build it is well worth it. I hate the PE wheels though.

Okay I'm back. I have had only small periods of modeling last few days. The PE wheels suck in my opinion. I'm sure better modelers could do a whole lot better job. So I cracked open my Copper State Models Lanchester and checked the wheels out again. They look great in my humble opinion. So they were assembled and are now blue tacked on to check them out. Next step is primer and painting and then gluing the wheels in place. They are almost a perfect fit. Maybe a .5 thou shim if anything. I think just glue will do.
So by all means critique away. Oh and the headlight supports are super fragile, I already broke one. Therefore I'm leaving the headlights off which is okay because I have found photos of them driving around with the lights removed. Once painted the front door will go on also.
