Looks kinda like the one I have in pieces in my garage, workshop,
exercise room, utility room, back shed and barn. All part of the
same car, mind.–

I have one the same in red in my loft that someone gave me, I
imagine you would have to have the patience of a saint to put it
together.
I’d end up smashing it to pieces with a hammer:-)

Many moons ago when I was much, much, much, much younger I built
one, took a long time and I thought I did a pretty nice job. Then,
my then baby brother rolled it off the kitchen table.

The one on the shelf is the same, yellow in color, have no idea why
I’m holding on to it, I’ll never build it.–

Chris,
I wonder how many in the E-Type Lovers community have one of these
models, no crashed but unbuilt, stored away in a closet, basement etc?
Once about every five years Darlene stumbles across my partly built
model and always says the same thing, “If you’re never going to finish
this thing you should get rid of it!” I’d be willing to bet that I’m
not the only one on this list that hears the same thing periodically!

I have one still in the original box that I bought is a small town in The Netherlands 12 years ago. It is a Gunze Sangyo white XKE, S1 OTS, 1:24 scale.

It occupies a prominant spot in my garage. One day–maybe, I’ll assemble it.---- Stevenson Robert bobanddarl@comcast.net wrote:

Forgive me but this will ramble a bit.

Prior to the E-type I kept a Triumph Dolomite Sprint on the
road for around 20 years. Eventually I lost interest and
sold it. This left my garage empty, so I sealed the floor
and painted the walls. I put up cupboards and shelves and
generally made it fit for a new toy.

My youngest, who was then about 12 or 13, asked what I was
going to put it the now empty garage. I asked his opinion,
and he said ‘Dad, you’ve got to get en E-type. A red one.
With seats in the back for me and Alex’ (his older brother).
At this time the boys lived with their mother some 50 miles
away. I used to collect them at weekend.

Instead of a full size one, I bought this 1/8 scale model
kit and we spent many weekends during the spring of 2003
building it up, spraying the ‘body’ a Peugeot Cherry Red.
After several weekends the model was ready so I asked James
to take it into the garage and ‘park it’.

What I hadn’t told him was that while we were building the
model a red 2+2 was being ‘commissioned’ for me.

I have the same model kit along with several hundred others. I have
built quite a few and to do one properly is a time consuming
process. The ‘‘bare metal’’ he refers to is a foil sheet with
adheasive backing that is used to replicate chrome trim. I have
used it on 1/1 cars on small switch bezels and it is a neat
product.The model pictured is an MG J2 that they don’t make a kit
for, so I had to ‘‘bash’’ 4 different kits to get the proper parts to
build it. It started with a ‘‘white’’ metal MGTC kit and after
shaving the fenders and reshaping the doors, fuel tank and other
body parts it became a J2. I sat it on the boot of my MGB to take
the pictures and it blended nicely with my concrete driveway. The
last picture is the real thing(not mine).
For real nice model builds, Google Gerald Wingrove.
