Hey all.  I've been away for awhile.  Partially not building and partially because this kit had me stumped 100 way to Sunday.

 

This is the old Testors release of the Miura Jota that originally had an electric motor.  As such there is room for a switch battery, gear drive and small electric motor (all no longer supplied).  Additionally the kit has ONLY the basic engine top, valve covers, throttle bodies and injector stacks.  The problem is the engine is REALLY visible when the back is open.  So most of what you see is scratched and worked down from ref pictures.  I'm pretty happy with the finished product even if the fit of the doors when closed is nightmarish.  So here goes.

Hope the pictures aren't too big...

Very nice work on a nightmare of a kit Dave. B)

The scratchwork is VERY impressive!

The Miura is quite probably the sexiest Lambo they ever built!

Not really the biggest fan of early Lambo's, but you did some justice to this kit. Great color and it's like glass.
