1/16 Minicraft Jaguar SS100 1938
For some alleged personal sins I build (or try to build) vintage kits? I just put some effort into improving them a bit without the time required to re engineer the old tech. Of course the wire wheels are the kit’s weak point. My lessons learned is that the size of the metallics are too large for this scale as are the fender rivets I added. Managed to tone down the chromed parts with a more ‘natural’ finish. My family and I have owned a number of Jaguars so its a soul thing for me. 4.2 E, 4.2 MkX, 3.4 Mk1, 3.8 Mk2, XK150-S with my 1952 Farina bodied Siata 1400 Gran Sport Barchetta just for variety.
