I'm looking for some vehicles to flesh out my Mexican Revolution collection, so I'm after anything that might be useful for the 1900-1920 period.

Would really love if there were some compatible diecast some might know of, especially Dodge Brothers, a Locomobile, or an Olds Limited Touring.

I know of many Model T's, but a little variation would be nice!

How about a Rolls Royce armoured car?

Warbases post to almost anywhere on the planet.

They have a good few other vehicles from the period.

Mmm… not a common sight in Mexico, Jim.

Maybe, but it's such a cool car.

Some of the various trucks would be useful for conversion , so I might pick a couple up.

Thanks, Jim!

What scale are you using for 28mm, though? Reviresco have some 1/64 civilian cars, either model T or something based on a Rolls-Royce; many use something a bit bigger, Old Glory have the Blue Moon cars:

while there are some bargains to be had shopping for Matchbox Models of Yesteryear on Ebay.
Or, do you use 1/48-1/43?
Some of the Glencoe mini kits may help:

And maybe one or two here:

Sarissa Precision also have some trucks and buses in their World War Europe range.

Are a few examples on my blog.

They have vehicles in a number of scales. They're from the Days Gone range.

Lots in UK auctions

Quite a few listed from US though as well.
