Mine was the pale green one on the right.

Interesting subject, Mike. I was looking for a missing bus model a couple of days ago and finally found it in a box where I put a lot of more delicate models. Included in the models I 'rescued' for use on the layout were M. Parker white metal Consul Classic and Consul Capri models. The Classic was finished in as close to the colour scheme as I could get to the one on the right in your puzzle, working from a photo in Google many years ago - maybe even the same preserved car - who knows! The Capri is in red with a white roof, but I don't have a photo of it to post here.

I posed the Classic with a bus kit I have been working on, so it isn't the main subject of the photos, but here it is with a Little Bus Company early Bristol RELL/ECW bus.

The one in your pics lookd lir the "primrose yellow" mine was "lime green" albeit somewhat pale. I originally had a light blue one back in the '60s which I didn't have for long, traded for a Corsair; the one in the puzzle I bought in '93 and kept for about 11 years, crawling under and over it became too much for me at 70, wish I'd kept it now, I know a good mechanic who enjoys working on older cars - he can do it without £thousands worth of computer diagnostic kit.

Hi Mike. It's not apparent in the photo, but the model is actually a pale lime green. These photos show it in a better light (the one above was taken at night, so is a little yellower).

As I couldn't find any previous photos of the Capri, I have taken a couple of fresh ones today. Also seen are a few of the other kit-built cars I own. I have tried with most of them to duplicate colour schemes offered on the real ones.

I have a 1973 Ford Falcon Hardtop but am getting too stiff and arthritic to work under it nowadays - used to do all me own maintenance in 'the old days'! I am debating whether to sell it on to someone who can do something with it, but I am quite attached to it. It doesn't cost much in servicing, and even the insurance is quite reasonable. I have a 'tame' mechanic who has serviced my cars for the last 20+ years. Like yours, he loves working on the older models, although he also does the newer cars as well, and services my 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer. Fortunately for me, both cars only require a service once a year.
