395 Ages For LEGO experts (not counted) Pcs Availiable since 1976 Rolls-Royce - 1909 model 2 page manual. 1 model. Price: (Got it as a gift) SET DESCRIPTION White 1909 Rolls-Royce (Silver Ghost?). Open car with horse-cart like wheels. One spare wheel. No active steering. UK model (availiable as continental?). Comes with a box to put the model on. Seems not to be intended to play with. RATINGS (MUST-HAVE EXCELLENT VERY-GOOD GOOD FAIR POOR) Set: MUST-HAVE Lots of 2 knobs radius quarter round walls. 19 years old (better than most Whisky). Models: EXCELLENT Makes a lot out of a limited choice of elements. Looks like a Rolls. Playability: FAIR It rolls. Made to be showed off, not to be played with. OVERALL IMPRESSION Made my cousin give it to me. It took some time, but I managed in the end. The car was just standing on a shelf. He had thrown the instructions away, but a phone call to Billund handled that. The next day there was an envelope with 2*4 bricks on it in the mail. Now that I have the instructions, I'm going to take the car apart, wash the bricks and use them for something. I got the set to give the bricks a good home. ELEMENTS Display Tray: believe not. Special/Unusual Elements: - 1 white technic axle - 5 white horse cart style wheels - lots of 2 radius quarter round walls New: - White horse cart style wheels Non-Plastic Elements: - Rubber tires on the wheels SPECIAL FEATURES None. SCALE/COMPATIBILITY Approximately 1:20 LIKES Elements. Looks like the original. Good use of a limited choice of elements. DISLIKES For exhibition only. ERRORS None. EXTRA ELEMENTS I didn't get them if there were some. CONCLUSION Certainly a nice way to build scale cars. If I should aquire this set again, the piece price should be competitive. REVIEWER INFORMATION Review Written: 1995.10.11 By: Jacob Sparre Andersen firstname.lastname@example.org Age 23 Favorite Theme: My own creations I collect bricks, build out of those I have, and always wish for more bricks Usually the models get mixed up in the rest of the collection within days. Have a look at my LEGO on the Web at "http://jacob-sparre.dk/LEGO/" I've just recently started buying other stuff than Town and Technic, but I did get a few space sets as a kid (well, as a _younger_ kid).
