A beautiful Jag to be sure. Nice to see that it is actually wearing the proper 'Silk Cut' decals. Great build; please post many more in the future.

Having seen one at Silverstone recently racing in classic sportscars you've made one heck of a job. Well done and I and forward to seeing more of your work, thanks for sharing.

Nice job!! Welcome back ! This car was designed by Tony Southgate and was one of the only cars  with a short tail. From what I read it created excellant straight away speed with good down force. A well balanced car.

Hi Bill, the 'Silk Cut' decals took a while to track down but worth it! I'm no rivet counter but I didn't think the purple blocks they supply in the kit did it justice. In my opinion this was the defining livery for this car. Pleased you like it!

Jere, kudos to you my friend, it is indeed a Southgate designed car and it collected quite a few trophies. I'm currently working on another less successful but equally as beautiful creation of his, the Nissan R390 GT1 which again is an incredible piece of engineering. The man had skills!

Thanks to everyone else, your comments are much appreciated.
