Aoshima MGB MkI

Recommended Posts

This has been a build I've been working on for a little less than a month but it's come together incredibly well. The kit is Aoshima's freshly reissued MGB MkI and it's a kit with quite a few nice touches. The included photoetch and precut masks for the windshield were definitely nice to work with, and the kit as a whole just dropped together. I painted it with AK Interactive's RC022 Blue from their Real Color line and covered that in a few coats of Tamiya Clear.

I like it a lot.  Thanks for sharing your build as it brings back some great memories of the B we once had.

Look great, the wire wheels are neat too.

Hope to get my hands on this model too at some stage.

Looks very nice. I built the rubber bumper version for a friend some time ago.

I would like to comment, but I can't really see anything. The light coming in the window should be behind you, not the model.

I do love MG's too

Very nice, I own an MGB and built a replica of my car many years ago..... you can't go wrong with building one in British Racing Green.  Very sharp.  P.S.  Yes, be careful about the placement of the model in reference to the light source, whenever possible, have the light at your back.

Looks great. I also bought the new reissue and look forward to building it. Bought the other one as well with different bumpers.

Very nice.  I think the wires actually look very good which is saying something for most kits.

Aoshima just re-issued it this year. When I saw it in the "upcoming releases" at the shop it automatically became a "One for the shop, One for the stash." order. lol If you have the chance, don't pass it up! It builds up so sweetly.
