Clamping the initial base plate of an early pre-war example in some more detail:

With this pre-war addition comparison of base plates in one picture is easy now:

Jan, a very nice and interesting comparison of the pre-war base with the post-war one. You will of course immediately see the difference. The large post-war lettering against the small pre-war and the omission of the wheel drive on the post-war because of the lettering. The earliest without name of the model. The latest with model number. I like comparisons like that.

What is also immediately noticeable are the holes in the base of the pre-war and the differences in rivets. I wonder why the holes in the base were needed. Was this perhaps necessary for pressing the wheel drive bulge?

Kind regards, Jan Oldenhuis

There is another small change to the baseplates of the 23e Speed of the Wind: the prewar-baseplates have those two little "angel wings" behind the differential. The late post-war baseplates (ca. 1948/49) had them omitted, before the new black baseplate was introduced.

Thank you, gentlemen, for your comments.

I presume the holes are for fixing the models during paint spraying, that is, for the models which have base plates in the same colour as the body only.

I had not noticed that angel wings difference before! My two examples without are models with domed axle ends. The others have crimped axle ends.

So I produced an adjusted picture below. Kind regards, Jan

My version almost has to be from 1946, and has the angel wings and red baseplate, along with smooth, non-ridged wheels, white tires, and painted driver's face.
