The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

1/43rd scale 1921 Dennis 'N' Typepicture #1606
on this site, shows the real thing. Produced by Yatming Models and sold for just over ten pounds (20 US$) it has amazing detail. Even the screws which hold the radiator header tank to the radiator core are present! Everything from the pump gauges to the CTC extinguisher are reproduced so accurately.
Having spent many days polishing the brass on the real thing the chromed brass on the model does look tempting!
