    Airfix E Type Jag
    This car was a real pain, body-wise. I had to glue the upper and lower body shells together, do the body work and paint, and then assemble it like a ship in a bottle. Everything was loaded through the back window and glued in place with water-soluable craft glue. Re-finished in BASF lacquers and DuPont urethane clear coat. Engine was wired and plumbed. By the time I got done with it, I turned it into a skill level 10.

    Jaguar XK SS
    Revell of Germany kit 
    This kit was a real work out too. I had to glue the upper and lower body halves together, fill in the seams, re-finish, and load it the interior through the fire wall (a real tight fit, needed a little filing here and there), but it worked out good. Re-finished in BASF lacquers, DuPont urethane clear coat. Engine wired and plumbed, scratch-built hood straps out of wallet leather. This was a really nice kit other than kit design problems.
