    Outstanding job. The multi piece body totally defeated me when I was a kid.
  3. Revell 1/8 Jaguar XK-E

    My favorite E-Type color combo is a dark gunmetal with a crimson red interior. I believe they called the color opalescent gray.
  4. Jaguar XK 120, Revell

    Spectacular job. Your work on the windshield frame is one of those little details that makes a big difference.
  5. Bentley

    I saw one on display at a Gilmore show in Michigan. I wasn’t prepared to see how big they are.
  6. Bentley

    When the repop of the 1/12 Bentley came out with the revised registration number, I contacted Airfix to see if there were any other changes to the original kit. They wrote me back that this was the only difference, and the change was dictated by a Bentley executive. I believe Lauren still has 6571 in his possession.

    Using the registration number shown in your photo, I tracked down this car at vintagebentleys.org. It’s a 1930 6.5 litre Speed Six, driven by Steed in several episodes from 1967-68. The interesting part is that Macnee couldn’t drive it, so they always used a stunt driver. If it’s a blower, it’s not a typical Bentley supercharger in front of the radiator. Lots of photos at the site, but I can’t copy and paste the url.

    Excellent.

    Wow. Beautiful work.

    As I recall, the Steed Bentley was a non-blower Speed Six.
  11. Revell AMG GT

    What’s up with the right-hand drive? Does the kit also offer LHD?

    In the kit, there is a distinct panel line horizontally where the upper body joins the lower body. No such line on the 1:1.

    You could probably even build the Tom Mix Cord using the 1/12 AMT kit, which was my plan. Though it’s a 2-seater, it shouldn’t be too hard to adapt to a cabriolet with a back seat and smaller trunk lid (they have the same wheelbase).

    Your biggest issue will be how much you care about the body seam that runs along the bottom of the doors. I don’t have the link, but fixing it has been covered on the forum.
  15. Jaguar XJ-S H.E. TWR - Hasegawa

    Has anyone built the 1/16 version? It’s been gathering dust on my shelf while I’ve gathered stuff like the Haynes manual and BBS wheels.
