|99300-4 Miller Racing Cars
|THE REAL CAR
The famous Miller Racing Cars won 73 out of 92 major motor races in the US between 1922 and 1929.
Their revolutionary design was to be copied by many other manufactures in both the US and Europe changing the face of motor sport forever.
This fine 19 inch long model launched the 1/8th scale Classic Tinplate Range in late 2002.
These highly detailed models are fitted with working leaf springs and are powered by a clockwork motor which drives the fully steerable front wheels.
The model was produced in a choice of 5 colours and each was supplied with a poseable driver figure kitted out in period clothing & goggles.
These hand built models were only available either direct by mail order from Gilbow or at the annual Showbus Rally, they were retailed at £199.00.
Another clockwork model based on a Dreadnought ship appears to have got to a fairly advanced stage of pre-production, a publicity photograph showing five different versions and carrying "The Dreadnoughts are coming" heading was included on the 2004 edition of EFE Master List CD ROM. To date no further details have been released regarding these large 21 inch long models.
