Diecast Vehicles for VBCW Part IV

Another couple of vehicles arrived today.

Lledo DG 029  1931 Rolls-Royce Phantom II

Lledo DG 025 1925 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost Tourer

Compared to the Model A Truck

Size-wise they seem to fit fairly well, though perhaps slightly small for the larger Artizan miniature.  Let's check against real life examples.

This is a 1931 Phantom II Limousine.  As you can see, the gentlemens' heads are going to be at or slightly above the roofline.  So I would say even though the Lledo Phantom seems slightly small at first compared to the Artizan figure, it's actually not a bad match.

 Here is a 1925 Silver Ghost Torpedo.  Unfortunately the only person standing right next to it is a girl, but the adults in the background appear as if their heads would be at or slightly below the roofline.  So I would say the Lledo car is about right for the Artizan figure and maybe slightly big for the Musketeer figure.
