    Jaguar XJR-8 Test version
    Finally i can call this one completed, it is the TWR Jaguar XJR-8 which i picked up for a very reasonable price many years ago. The decals were discoloured and a little brittle, even the tyre decals had issues and i unfortunately have a couple missing from the rear tyres. So with the decal issues i decided to go with a pre-season test version, now i know Tom may never have allowed this to happen with his high standards and all, but this is model building and i will use poetic licence on this one. The cars shape is sensational and i feel the black highlights its curves very well, but to not make it look too Gothic,  i went with painting the rear wing in the lovely Tamiya Lavender and doing the wing end plates and mirrors white.
    I have added some extra details like seat belts and flocking the seat, a braided line for the radiator and some wiring in the cockpit area, and i finished it off with some aluminum tubing for the exhaust outlets. The kit is quite nice and very simple, one i would like to have again or maybe go for the Tamiya XJR-9 seeing this has full engine detail, and yes i would dearly love to do it in the true Silk Cut colours. 
    But this is my first completed build for 2017 so nice to get one down....how many more for the year......well lets not get too excited.
