#1 Crimbo pressie idea?

Post by rswaffie » Wed Nov 14, 2018 9:03 am

A mate of mine sent me this link to a company who make various scale models. Their current promotion included a 3.8 fhc (in the most stunning of all paint/trim combos)

Bit pricey though at £540!

From a quick glance, it looks reasonably well done. Is it me or do the wire wheels look a little thin, and the wipers a little strange?

Nice paint job though. It's difficult enough to paint one of those things in a small scale, let alone the real thing! Thankfully my models were painted by Richard - who has the proper kit and has painted both the E-types he restored - I'd be useless :lol:

As Julian says, front bumpers are ‘smiling’ a bit. It’s also on flat hubs rather than curly. Would have also expected some detail on the tyre walls. Having said all that I bet it looks good in the flesh.
I’ve had worse chrimbo pressies!

And is it just me, or does it look somewhat smaller than a real one?....
