3 large survivor models finally photographed


Recommended Posts

My wife and I have been packing and arranging for a 'downsize move' and with all the packing of my toy and model rooms (2), I've finally been able to, again, get my hands on a few old models that were in cases, but in areas that were difficult to access.  The models are all large size.....a Monogram 1/8 scale Jaguar E-type,  A Monogram 1/8 scale '65 Corvette Stingray, and a Renwall 1/4 scale 'Visible Chassis'.  These models were all painted and built around 4 decades ago, and relatively inaccessible for about 20 years, but I've now been able to digitally photograph them.  Enjoy!

Beautiful, all three of them! Congratulations on building them so well and keeping them in such great shape all these years. Well done and model on! B)

They are all beautifully done and you are lucky they survived the move so well. Like you we are unpacking from a move that also was to downsize. I have my fingers crossed for the condition of some of mine.

!!! WOW !!!  Those appear as though you just completed them yesterday ! While each one is splendid in their own right , it's that quarter-scale chassis that's the most outstanding .

The Jag and 'Vette are my favorite.  Maybe because I have both in the stash.  I surely do hope mine come out half as good as your beauties.

I've known about these kits for some time but I can't recall seeing them built up before. These are all beautifully finished and assembled. The Jag and the Corvette really do look like real cars-just awesome. I bet it's good to have them out for you to enjoy again. I definitely enjoyed seeing your photos! Thanks for posting them Cliff.

Absolutely stunning. You must have quite the collection to not even look at those in 20 years.  That Jag is brilliant. Good luck with the move.
