Decided to elaborate on the headlights,as standard it is just the lens so robbing parts  from  a 250 gto (not that one...) have detailed them a bit.

 

Cut down trunk  lid!

 

Even though it is  aprox 24th it has the guts of a slot car..

 

Wheelz R done.

 

Given a squirt of flat green.

 

Got the grille and steering wheel sorted btw.

On the real  deal the rims are marked Dunlop,so using some tiny decals done my version.

 

Also the rear lights are small and round,not square!

 

So the rears are being sanded down a bit.

Taillamps look like TR-3 and A-H if I remember correctly. (At one point I had the upper lens, lower lens and chrome bezel part numers memorized for MG-B, Sprite and Midget. Sold lots of them. Lucas, the Prince of Darkness. Ah, the good old days...)

G'day, Nigel.  You're going alright there, mate, making a simple kit look like so much more.  Do you know if a 'traditional' kit of the classic D-Type was ever made?  I mean, a Revell or Monogram maybe?  My friend Google has not been able to help, except for resin and multi media kits selling for hundreds of dollars, euros, or pounds.  Cheers.
