For a dear friend I am going to make a miniature replica of his MG TC

The car itself

The base model

This bit needs some work

Right, a few steps forward.

Painting the interior

And the engine as well

A bit of red on the inside of the body

testfitting the dashboard and losing some of the chrome as most parts are alloy.

And trying the rest

So I changed the exhaust (3 to 1), rampipes on the carbs and wires on the other side. Also added floor mats and rubber on the tunnel.

Some further developments on the MG TC.

First a bit of improving the interior and engine.

Old versus new.

Now with throttle links and oil catch can.

And a start with the front window. It remains folded down and a couple of 'racing windows' behind it have to be made.

Thanks!

The garage is quite easy. Bit of photoshopping for the walls (printed on photopaper) and a bit of wood of some 3D effect.
