    competition coupe

    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.
    Hand built... the ONLY way.

    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
