Beautiful Jag! The sunroof is a very nice addition. Harry could have used those photos for the real or model forum! Great work!

Karsten,

Wonderful build. Did you create the wire wheels and / or are they commercially available? If so where?

Check out his web site. Fantastic in-progress build photos. It's all in German, but the photos speak for themselves. Looks like he scratchbuilds the wheels.

Yeah.  I think this truly means the two unbuilt 1/8 Big Jags I have on the shelf in my stash will be staying on the shelf in my stash.

 

I'm going back to buying Hot Wheels!

Nice to see that your like the old Classic car! The rimps are Long Time my Dream to build them and hard work.
I build over twenty jag model kits and try anytime for more perfektion and all variationen. That was not the last, i have ten or twelve kits more. When you like it, i show the next again here.
Thank you. Karsten

Another masterpiece of your shop, you're raising the bar higher with every model. The Golden Sand color and sunroof really snaps.

 

Cheers
