An interesting web sales site on Etsy and online is The Swagman’s Daughter, a fabulous website by Leonard Holder listing lots of vintage items from old warehouses that she has cleared. https://swagman.myshopify.com
These six attractive small vintage cars were about £3 a set plus postage. They may still have some more.
I wasn’t entirely sure what overall size they were but having a variety of scale figures, I was sure they would suit some figures in my collection.
I tried some Airfix WW1 British OO/HO scale figures (20mm) for scale as they seem close enough to the vehicle period.
The Peter Laing 15mm figures seem to match well enough too. I have some WW1 Peter Laing figures to paint and I think that painted up in khaki, these small cars will make effective staff cars and small lorries. They remind me of the Marne taxis of WW1. My chances of finding affordable 15mm original Peter Laing vehicles are pretty slim.

I went to the swagman website. Have you bought any of the spring loaded cannons? They seem a little pricy but still cheaper than most on Ebay.
Saw these and couldn’t quite Work out their size. Are they worth it, powerful and effective?
