In November 2008, Bengt Dahlgren informed me that there
are some interesting Stutz models on Ebay, in scale 1:87.
We only knew the Stutz Royale in that scale, made by Lion Models,
and only available as metal-kit, which is quite difficult to build.
So I was quite surprised to see different models in a scale that is very popular in Europe.
Stutz Royale, similar to the Lion Model
I got in contact with Gregor Mager, who creates these handbuilt models.
Stutz Diplomatica kit
One of the first versions was the shortened Royale, the Diplamatica.
The very first one sits a little low, but shows the color of the only Diplomatica that wasn't sold to Saudi Arabia.
Another model, in a nice two-tone-color, showing a Landaulet-style roof design.
Bengt ordered a 1971, similar to his own, real Stutz.
Imagine, these models are in scale 1:87, the famous HotWheels were about 1:72.
So these models are even smaller, a Blackhawk is just about 5cm long...
The Aston-Martin Lagonda is a fascinating car, too,
a lot of Stutz-fans like the Lagonda, too,
so here is Bengt's model standing next to a Lagonda sedan.
Black and gold 1971 Blackhawk.
Playing around, Gregor created some new Stutz models:
The Royale model was modified, by removing the top in front, a "Town Car"-like Royale was designed.
You want to have a Stutz with more prestige?
Hmmm, Gregor created something, that is based on the famous, but unbuilt VIP-car:
The ultimate Stutz, at least in scale 1:87...
Gregor is able, and willing to build your personal
model in scale 1:87.
If you are interested, please contact him!
He is already working on other models...
... the late Blackhawks, and the 85 Bearcat...
