Thanks for the comments and support. It does help in the producing of a better model.
This is the last part of the history I am posting, a total of 5 parts. I have including this to give some information to those not familiar with the car and to show how important it was to MG.
Other changes implemented were the replacement of the original bolt-on wheels with centre-lock wire wheels but even
once production had started in earnest, there were continual changes in specification, which made a mockery of the
so-called Nuffield efficiency. These changes could only be attributed to faulty initial design of the components;
eventually even the complete chassis frame was modified. By the time of the 1936 Motor Show, circumstances dictated
a price rise with the saloon now costing £389 and the Charlesworth open tourer at £385. The Tickford Coupe was
introduced at £415. Early in 1937, the engine capacity was changed yet again to 2322 cc, probably to comply with
Nuffield standardisation of models and there was little if any improvement in performance as a result.
The performance could be described as adequate rather than exhilarating, with the car weighing in at almost a
ton and a half and with only 75.3 bhp available, acceleration could only compare to its 18/80 forerunners.
The SA did however have a genuine top speed of nearly 85 mph and could sustain a cruising speed all day long of
70 mph plus.
Now back to the model. I taped up the firewall with just masking tape since I just wanted to keep overspray off the outside of the body and a crisp line is not an issue.
Carefully pumping up the bug sprayer I slopped some paint on the firewall, a coat of black..
After this dries I will pick out some color to spiff it up a bit and so the engine room does not look to monocromatic. The real one seems to have a lot of black in the ones I could see but with a little artistic licence (it is permitted in this case since I hold the paint brush ) I just feel I want to dress it up a bit.
Thanks to all the followers for their support, I like hearing of the little bits that I have been able to pass along for those building kits to help make them easier or better..
