So nice I want to lick it!

(Licking computer screen...)

Yech! Tastes like static shock! :P

All kidding aside, I love the early Jags, and you don't see them too often in scale, and you did a great job on this one. Keep 'em coming! :D

There are several classic Rolls-Royce models in 1/24-1/25, such as the Henley roadster and Star of India, but in 1/16 you'll find two very good kits.

The first is the 1934 Phantom II with Gurney-Nutting coachwork, the real car currently owned by Chuck Schwimmer's San Diego Collection (nice reference shots there). It's a Revell kit that is usually available on eBay and should never cost more than about $40-$50 (Beware of the "Museum" version, which has brass-plated parts instead of chrome). This build is by the late, great Martin Swire, with more pictures at http://www.freewebs.com/martsmodels/1934rollsroycepii.htm. His site also has many other 1/16 masterpieces.

The other 1/16 is a 1937 Phantom III, originally issued by Gunze Sangyo and later by Revell and Anmark (there may be an Entex boxing as well). The actual car is on display at the Toyota Museum in Japan, and there is very little photo reference for it.

Not real familiar with smaller scales or Packards, though Most Monogram classics and Hubley classic car metal kits are pretty nice.

Here's the 1/16 Revell Phantom II with an excellent Buy It Now price of $25:

1/24 Rolls Henley roadster for $36:

These shots are of the only built version of this kit that I've ever seen, and not very well done. Looks like the builder was misled about the car color by trying to copy the picture on the box. The Revell box shows a build in black and yellow, which looks terrific.

One thing about this Phantom III kit is a unique modeling approach (as far as I can see) to door hinges; it's a combination of metal tabs and plastic parts, where the metal tabs fit into slots on the door posts. Might be instructive for creating hinges for other kits, but the assembly instructions are not easy to understand.

One thing I haven't figured out is how to do proper-looking door hinges for my kit of your Jaguar SS 100. I'm surprised that the Jaguar kit and others like the 1/16 Entex/Minicraft Mercedes 540K have separate doors but no hinges – they're supposed to be glued in place. I am well aware of the many different tutorials on making hinges, but both of these kits need special approaches to look realistic, since the hinges are also external. The solution needs to include metal in key areas, since plastic hinges almost always break off.– and showing off your model to others means you're going to want to open things a few times, more than just letting it sit on the shelf.

I have a 1/16 MG-TC that is similar; doors are separate without hinges. I really want to build it, and have to research a hinge tutorial for it. I want to do it in a color scheme I saw on a 1:1 MGTB; medium grey fenders, charcoal grey metallic body, maroon chassis, wheels, interior, and grille insert. Incorrect for a TC, but a stunning color combination.

ya that was pretty disappointing because you would think that they would but they only gave you one for the hood but still looks good
