Model Coach (1948, British Pathe)
Fourteen years on from the model bus seen in Would You Believe It? No. 14 , the same builder, also named as Ernest Johnstone, demonstrates a model coach on Brighton seafront. It's a scale model Southdown Leyland Tiger powered by a two stroke engine, and has its own licence plate HUF16. Dick Gilbert observes "I've seen a couple of the Johnstone 'Midgets', both Southdown Royal Tiger replicas, and they are amazing. I see the PSV Circle records show 19(!) surviving examples of his work. The one shown in the film is not amongst them, but an identical Tiger PS replica (the only surviving Tiger) wearing number DUF 3 is owned by a Mr A Johnstone of Brighton - the old boy's son perhaps?"
