Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. This is my build of Bo Zolland's digital rendering of a new age Jaguar E-type, he referred to it as the Lyonheart. I started with a builtup of an original Monogram Jaguar E-type that I purchased at a local meeting for $2. I stripped it apart which was quite easy and put it in the pond for a few days to strip off the paint from the 70's. Next task was to take all the body parts and glue them together to create a one piece body that would be the starting point for the long road of cutting, gluing, filling, sanding, etc. I made a 1/24 scale printout of the sideview of the digital rendering of the Lyonheart and realized the E-type was 10 mm too short on the total length....sigh here we go. Cut the body at the front of the doors and added 10 mm of plastic from a Nascar body (which had the exact contour I needed) carefully sanded the mating surfaces, squared up, and glued the body back together. Next step was to add the necessary height to the side profile. Added in the center pieces from the beltline to the rocker from another Nascar kit (nice smooth sides). Next, on the rear quarter I had to pie cut and add in plastic to match up with the center. After all that dried I sanded smooth and got ready for the next step....had to widen the body 8 mm. Cut the body down the middle and added 8 mm of plastic on the hood, trunk, and front and rear valance. Amazingly (!), it sits dead level on the table and is now a scale 1/24 which is correct for my plans.
