It's seen it's better day. I like the diorama feel of this one.

So sad to see a Jaguar die so alone. Great work, but the actual one has windscreen in and black rubber sealant strip around, it seems. I don't know, when it's out, the weatherstrip goes out with it. I love the rusted out spots and the areas of paint that are gone and the trans with an alloy oxidizing on the surface. Very cool. I apologize for having missed this poor shell of a former Grand Tourer!

  How'd I miss out on this one ?
Body looks too thoroughly gutted, but the weathering techniques are stunning !!
Oxidized tranny is a brilliant touch.
Nice work !!!

Thanks guys.

Clay.... I have the floor pan and inner wings for it. They just weren't in the photos.

The base was just a temporary thing and the body will eventualy sit in the backyard of my garage dio, should I ever finish it. (or re-start it for that matter.... LOL)





The body lay around in my modeling room for a couple of years or so, and had 'grown' a fabulous mini cobweb in the bottom right corner. Perfect it was. So I thought I'd take a photo of it, only I dropped it and the cobweb disintegrated.

However, it's been lying around agin for about six months and some cobweb is back!!! LOL

Cobwebs don't count unless they're in scale! The diorama looks great, windows really add realism.

John......

Simply a thin coat of watered down white glue, then I dumped talcum powder on it.

Sorry about the name thing Andy. Should never make assumptions, should we.
