Ken Miles Le Mans

Recommended Posts

Surprise – Not a 1966 GT40MKII but a 1955 MG EX-182, a prototype for the MGA. Ken Miles and Jonnie Lockett drove their MG to 12th place in this ill-fated race.


The model is a Strombecker MGA in 1/24th scale (sort of).  A very simple kit which was issued as a motorized model, using 2 AA batteries.  It had posable front wheels and a sticker for the dash.  I added Herb Deeks PE wire wheels and tires, a passenger side tonneau cover, plus a few other details like the driving light in the grille and various vents.
