Leyland eight card model project

oh yes he starts on yet another of his crazy design ideas. this time its the leyland eight very hard to find any sources on this and just after finding out why. only 14 were built, there is mention of one surviving at some motor meusume in Britain. anyone got an idea where and if anyone has photos of it I know one was in Ireland in August 1922 since it was the car that Michael Collins was been driven in during the Ambush.

I hope he finds one and I hope this eventually becomes a model available to the rest of us. You did say 1/48?

My only gentle word of caution: now that you have our hopes up, please to continue work on Sliabh Na mBan.
