Thank you,,,,,the improvement is inevitable as I learn to do more and learn more of what the plastic can and will do. :rolleyes:

 

Getting more profiecent is what the hobby is about, without learning new skills or new techniques we can not improve, we need to push the envelope with each build whether it is scratch building or kit building. If we don't strive to do better each time we just end up glueing and painting the same way each time. :P

 

Again ,,,thanks to all those that watch and comment. The comments also lead to improvement.

 

Kenn :)

wow this is super interesting, excellent scratchbuilding! i wish i could be that successful at translating 1:1 down into a model. really impressive.

 

i owned an MGTF for many years, many decades actually, and always wanted a K3, almost bought one once but a clearer head prevailed.

 

heres a pic of my trusty TF on its way to its new home (and a frame up resto):

contrary to popular wisdom that car rarely broke down, and i drove it quite a bit over many years and in over 4 decades it only left me stranded one time...and that was because the german fuel pump i replaced the lucas one with went out while i was out on the road.

Without doubt this is my favorite of all the builds you've shown. Really captures the character of the car. The wire wheels are brilliant.

Thank you for all the nice comments.....The laced wheels construction can be seen in community builds under the 1933 MG challenge, I will be posting the actual lacing this afternoon.

 

Getting closer to finish...need to send the last bits to the paint shop then it goes under glass.
