    Done.

    Fantastic build of a great looking car. You did a much better job than I would ever do. Excellent photography too.
    Contrary to what is generally said at present, the original kit was not released in 1973, but 2 or 3 years earlier. I built the original one before 1973, as I moved from NZ to Australia in Feb 1973, and the kit was finished well before that.

    Another vote for real.
    The shadows under the car just don't talk model to me.

    MG TC 1946
    Revell Germany kit No. 07392.
    Lots of detail work, including opening all louvres, separate and hinge bonnet with scratchbuilt hinges, wired engine, hand laced wire wheels to correct pattern, dash board painted to resemble timber, radiator louvres opened up.
    Not perfect, but I'm happy with how it turned out. Not a factory correct colour, but I liked the look of it. Too many other models already in red.

    Very nice build.
     
    I built the Napoleon version of this car quite some years ago, not sure now whether it was a Heller or Italeri or some other manufacturer.  Unfortunately, it got damaged beyond reasonable repair over a couple of house moves.

    I think I've cracked it.
    It's not what it appears to be at first thought!

    After much more work, I think I've cracked it.

    I give up, can't possibly work out what this one is.

    Great work. Looks impressive.

    I just finished Revell AG 1945 MG TC. To keep the Revell AG theme going, I dragged the Jag out again. Started building this at least a decade ago, and put it away in frustration.
    So far I've cleaned up the body, opened the doors on each side, opened the boot (trunk in USA lingo). The doors have prototypically correct hinges made from brass plate. The interior panels also had to be cut once the doors were opened.
    The opening doors also meant I've had to cut recesses into the chassis or floorboards where it's recessed at the door areas, and build up the panels at the front and back of the door jambs. Consequently, the underside of the doors have been built up to the correct profile.
    Pictures to follow in a later seperate thread.

    Real for me too.

    Great driver and builder, and a modest man. Sad loss indeed.

    And welcome to the OP from another ClogWog living at the other end of the world.

    That's the car from the remake of the movie, not the original Gone in 60 Seconds.
