Thanks for getting that one up James! For anyone getting any of the Tillys on the market, this one is an absolute must-buy.

Unfortunately, the manufacturers need to go a little further and produce either a Hillman or Standard Tilly (which are VERY different from the Austin) and open up many more possibilities including RAF vehicles.

I know it sounds crazy demanding more after we FINALLY get two Tillys in Styrene, but it really was an incredibly prolific series of vehicles.

Hi Jim,

Got the book last week and agree, excellent and informative reference and yes, we do need some more versions in plastic, but what a cracking start with the SKP and Tamiya offerings.

Spot on review.

I know - unfortunately, they're beyond many modeler's budgets. That's why i'm so enthusiastic at SKP & Tamiya doing the Austin..

Hi Guys,

Does anyone have any technical data on its bigger brother the Austin 10hp Saloon (Staff Car)?



Cheers
