--36b Bentley Two-seat Sports Coupe (1937-50)

Did anybody ever turn up a photo of a POST-WAR reissue 36-B Bentley with smooth hubs or pre-war style open chassis?

Hi Stfan,
As far as I know the post war 36B Bentley can be found with a pre war slotted base plate with slots for the pre war figures. This version has smooth hubs. I have one in my collection.
Kind regards,
Rob

Hello Rob, May I ask what colour your example is finished in? I have one in a shade of green that is a little bit more "alive" than the normal light green found on models of this era, it came with smooth black tyres.

Kind regards, Stfan

Hello Stfan,
Mine is green as well. It is not on display (full cabinets) but somewhere in my cellar. I will post a picture later.
Kind regards,
Rob

That sounds great. If possible, can you please compare the light green of your model with the light green used on the slightly later ridged black wheel models from 1947 onwards. It seems that a different shade was used prior to 1947 that has a richer brighter appearance.

Kind regards, Stfan

Re : --36b Bentley Two-seat Sports Coupe (1937-50)

Hello Stfan, Sorry but my 36b from the cellar is not green but saxe blue. I did find some other 36 series, all with smooth hubs and except 36a all with a slotted baseplate. The Rover and the 4-seater are in green. On the second picture two green ones are placed next to a later Rover in green. It is difficult to see, but the two with smooth hubs are sligthly brighter green.

Saxe blue Bentley is one I have not seen before in the flesh, great find! Does anybody else have a smooth hub Bentley in their collection? They seem to be very rare.
