A new project. The father of a friend of mine restored and owns a 4 door Morris Minor. As a model only a 2 door is available. So, besides changing the colour, I am going to create two extra doors.

The base model by Minichamps

The right colour

Playing around with some wheels I have. Makes a big difference.

Tomorrow the MG Workshop celebrates its 40th anniversery. It is a garage I used to earn some extra money while I was a student. They also taught me everything I know about working on cars. Dear friends for about 16 odd years now.

Anyway, I made a present for them. A bit of a fantasy car.

The well known base model

The mods: carpet, some more red in the interior, small rings around the speedo and rev counter, a handle for the passenger, painted some chrome in grey (dashboard) and black (e.g. plate holders) and the decals.

Very nice work!

(How I wish there were more English cars in 1.24th plastic. Surely a "Moggie" like this would turn a profit.)
