1917 REO Touring Tan – 1/18 Scale Die Cast Model

Automobile innovator Ransom Eli Olds formed the REO Motor Co. in 1904 after his penchant for the technical side of the business led him into confrontations that drove him from his namesake company, Oldsmobile. With his new company, which Olds named by using his own initials, he set out to make luxury cars at reasonable prices, using the slogan “The Gold Standard of Value.” Although at $1,250, the 1917 REO was not for every budget, it was still priced well less than other luxury cars at the time.
This top-of-the-line model had a wheelbase of 126 inches with luxurious upholstery and seating for seven with its rear jump seat. The three-speed, six-cylinder engine was capable of producing 30.50 horsepower.

• Accounts of major races of the period

The book picks up where Parker’s previous volume, Motor Racing at Brands Hatch in the Seventies, left off. It offers a very personal account of visits to the world’s busiest motor racing circuit during a decade of excitement and change, both on and off track, in the form of a scrapbook of previously unpublished photographs.Synopsis

By the start of the 1980s, the Brands Hatch motor racing circuit in Kent had become firmly established as one of the world’s classic tracks. It had grown from humble beginnings as a motor cycle grass track to become an internationally renowned facility, hosting top-class motor sport. During the following decade, under the stewardship of its entrepreneurial managing director, John Webb, this enviable position was reinforced, with the circuit hosting five consecutive Grands Prix, two at very short notice, from 1982-86, along with a host of other major international meetings as well as smaller, club events.

Chas Parker spent many years visiting the track, and amassed an impressive collection of thousands of colour transparencies, the majority of which are previously unpublished.

Aviation Classics – Avro Lancaster

Welcome to Aviation Classics, a new series of high-quality glossy publications centred on the world’s greatest aircraft, the events in which they played crucial roles and those who flew, maintained and supported them.

We begin with the Avro Lancaster, a type held in high regard by Bomber Command aircrew and an aircraft still admired by so many.

The sight and sound of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s PA474 flying around the country will turn anyone’s head, and can bring a tear to the eye of those with a personal connection as it brings back emotional memories of fallen comrades and family.
Over 55,000 Bomber Command aircrew didn’t return home and many more were physically and mentally scarred. Groundcrew, too, lost their lives with their efforts to keep the aircraft flying.
