RaulNanu Posted January 7 Share Posted January 7 (edited) Hi all!! Time has come to finish my latest build, the Jaguar E-Type from Revell. It had around 150 parts, so not too easy but not too complicated. Before this I did the Aoshima Pagani Huayra which had like 300, so this one was a walk in the park haha. The kit quality was amazing! I am in this hobby for one year now and shamefully I didn't do a Revell kit yet. This was my first. All the parts fit perfectly. I had only 2 minor issues, one with the bonnet which required a bit of bending to fit properly and have equal panel gaps, and the second with the headlamps clear glass assembly. It was tricky to put it properly in place and make it stay. Other than that, I used Tamiya LP for the interior, and Alclad Dark Aluminum for the exterior. I kept the chromed parts out of the box, just corrected the sprue marks with molotov chrome pen. The chrome quality is not perfect, but is OK. The fixation of the chrome parts to the sprue could've been chosen better by Revell, because lots of them are in really visible places. Last but not least (because probably it took more than the build itself haha) I made a video of the assembly. As some of you may know I animate the builds in stop motion animation using LEGO minifigures. This time I went the extra mile and added sound to the LEGO to bring them to life. Check that out as well! Cheers and I wish everyone a new year full of great finished kits!!! The Jaguar E-Type looks really tiny compared to the BMW E30 or M635CSi. It is a visual way of seeing how much the cars increased in size over the time! <YOUTUBE LINK REMOVED> Edited April 20 by Mike YouTube links to monetised channels aren't permitted on Britmodeller 21 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
