London taxi from ICM

ICM, the Ukrainian plastic kit manufacturer, has released a new kit in 1:24.

MODEL KIT No 24031  Type AG 1910 London Taxi





Ideal for a pre-Grouping station forecourt, maybe.

And here is a contemporary picture of the real thing.  Not bad at all!

Slightly limited market  - who has the space to model a London Terminus in G3 (think 'Copenhagen Fields' [urlhttps://www.themodelrailwayclub.org/layouts/copenhagen-fields/]https://www.themodelrailwayclub.org/layouts/copenhagen-fields[/url]/ at nearly 7 times linear size!)?

But I see that ICM have also introduced new variants of the Model T, which may have wider appeal.

Quite true Andy, but there are just so many Model T models already, more than all the other types put together .. which I suppose is not for off what it should be!  Personally, I'd still like to see some nice horse drawn parcels vans - horses were common in goods yards until well after Nationalisation.

I agree - another thing on my 'round tuit' list!
If I can crack the challenge of 3D modelling the wheel spokes (which aren't simply round sticks) then it will have some momentum again.

Andy what software package are you using? I could have a look answer if I can draw the wheels out if would like? I'm using fusion 360, but this will generate a DXF file that can be used by most 3D software packages.
