Title: Motobitz
Post by: Mossie on March 31, 2020, 02:37:53 am
Kit'll be happy, a 1/24 Mini Moke!  Two versions, standard and a Prisoner taxi.

They also do some Mk.1 Mini variants, a van, pick-up and a woody.

There's some LWB conversions for the Italeri Transit.

They also do accessories too.  Lots of wheels especially.

Resin, so they're not cheap.

Damn.

I've just fallen in lust with their 1/24 suspension sets.  Complete IRS & IFS with real springs.  I could so make use of a few sets of those.

A Prisoner Moke would also be nice in the stash.

Yes indeedy!  :thumbsup:

The guy who's doing the Mokes, presumably Mr. Motobitz, got in touch with me about 2 yrs ago about doing a Twini-Moke kit, but when I told him there were only three of them ever made, he reckoned it wouldn't sell.

It wouldn't stop me getting a standard one and modifying it to a Twini, if I could afford it though.  ;D

And I'm with you on those suspension kits Fred, they look REALLY good. The IRS looks to be based on the Jaguar 'crate' they used on the E-Type and almost everything else at that time, but without the cursed sheet metal frame around it.

I believe there were about half a dozen made downunder, Kit.

Didn't Number Six drive a Lotus Seven before he became Number Six?
A nice two car diorama could be built using one of these and the Tamiya Caterham (backdated as needed).

If I get enforced lockdown forced on me a rewatch of The Prisoner is in order.

Tamiya's 24th Lotus 7 is pretty much perfect to do P's car, KAR 120C.  I did it myself a good 30 years back and I've a pair to do it again sometime in the future.

First episode here and it has the longer title sequence.

Twini-Mokes, or single engined Mokes Brian?
