Lister 'Knobbly' Jaguar 1/8 scratch

Recommended Posts

Heck Roy, that is just WOW & a real treat to see the internals of one of my favourite classics laid out like that. Just magic. :)

Thanks chaps. Please - any questions, ask.

 

I've now added the inner 'lip' to the cockpit which will eventually be body colour.

Also started making the dash panel which on this car is also the firewall.

A fiddly bit of template making as well as head scratching, trying to work out whether to fix the panel to the floor as in the real cars, or to the inside upper body which will enable me to remove the body at a later date if needs be.

Still puzzling that one.

Whatever, the dash will need to be made completely before fitting.

 

Lots of resin parts cast now - wheels, brake parts, engine bits etc.

The main engine pieces have been cleaned up and painted, some bits assembled.

A pic below of the Lister engine (so far) beside the engine for my C Type.

 

On we go...

 

Roy.

Stunning work as usual Roy,

 

 Are you going to cast the tyres in resin or are you using some sort of rubber? I must have a go at this casting malarkey, it looks like fun.

I cast my own tyres in resin.

I also flatten the bottom of each tyre on a bench sander so they sit better at the end.

Real tyres aren't round, on the ground.

Many thanks for the kind words.

 

Roy.

AAARRRGGGHHH....

 

Too much on the go at once!!!

My brain is in meltdown.

I've started mixing up the bits from the C Type build, and the Lister.

Not only that, but I've got a screaming urge to build a little OOB 1/32 or 1/24 car kit for a bit of 'relaxation'...

 

...and the box under the Lister body is stuffed with the Shelby Mustang partwork that is yelling 'start me - start me'...

 

HELP!

 

Roy.

Hello chaps - thanks for following.

Very slow work at the moment as I've got a few other things on the go.

 

I've started on the dash-panel - incredibly simple so it shouldn't be too much bother.

I've made so many flippin' little relays and fuse boxes over the last few builds that this time I've moulded and cast them so I can churn out more in the future.

 

The rear discs and calipers are in although as this area really is almost invisible at the end, I've simplified it a bit...

 

On we go.

 

Roy.

For those following -

 

The first body parts are now painted...

I'll prob leave as paint and not clear coat as the real cars aren't hyper-glossy.

Yellow stripe to add and just a polish.

 

Roy.

Very nice paint finish Roy. This will look stunning with the yellow stripe added. 

 

Best Regards

Thanks chaps.

 

Lister very kindly gave me the paint code which as it happens, is 1965 MGB light racing green.

I had it mixed at 'Cars' in Ipswich.

It was £15 a can, but it's actually genuine cellulose. 'Old school' paint.

It went on a treat over Halfords grey primer and dried as you see it.

I must admit, cellulose does give that 'older' kind of shine acrylics don't have.

I'll be using 'Cars' in the future.

 

Roy.

Love the paint job Roy. I never use clear coat, just lots of prep and polish. Yours looks gorgeous!

Looking pretty darn good from where I'm sat Roy. I do like that colour, it looks as just right as you'd get I reckon. :)

Very nice paintwork Roy, looks just right to my eye in both colour and glossiness.

Excellent choice of paint Roy. It lays out beautifully right out of the can.

Many thanks for the kind comments chaps.

 

The rear half of the body is now also painted, so dash installed next and then some cockpit fittings.

I've just loosely placed the panels together to get a look at the size.

The Lister was a BIG car...

 

Roy.

OK chaps.

 

I'm now getting very close to the stage where I always want to leave the model alone and stop.

I just love the 'workshop' look of a car in pieces.

 

I've tentatively fitted the floor/chassis very loosely and once the engine is in, that's where I'm tempted to leave it.

 

Of course, I won't but am I the only one who gets these temptations?

 

Roy.

Beautiful paintwork Roy, I think you could get a job spraying the bodywork at Listers.

Your not Roy, I often think like that (I think they look more interesting and you can see more or the work you've put in) plus in (my case anyway) it usually because I've ruined the one I'm working on.
