after finishing a couple of models inbetween decorating the main bedroom, my partner says she wants something built for the bedroom.my head went down and I said to her what now !. she says I would like a pair of competition coupe`s that can be displayed in a glass case.i`ll be robbing an old Tony Nancy kit for some parts . the first one body will be a resin Bantum coupe with a Jag engine with a crank driven blower . here`s a rough idea of my plan

Black n gold then, with a shimmer of satin, like the sheets no doubt. No idea where you can get a small disco ball or oil light but then you are resourceful.

been doing some work on the Jag engine whilst waiting for chassis parts paint to dry . i`ve made a set of upward zoomies ,wire the engine , made the runners for the super charger and mounted the twin carbs . just got to put the trumpets on the carbs and run the fuel lines . there will be a electric fuel pump mounted to the chassis .here`s how the Jag engine looks at the moment
