A little cheapie I picked up before Christmas.
A reissue of the ancient Airfix kit.

It's from the original moulds which actually don't look that bad.
Yes it will all still need a fair bit of cleaning up and de-seaming, but hopefully it will be a fun little project among all my usual big stuff.

I'm going to paint it black over silver with a red or cream interior - to be decided.

As an aside, whoever designed the box dropped a bit of a clanger with the art on one side panel.
It's upside down!
A pile of these kits on a shop shelf would look really odd as the top of the box would have to be face down.LOL LOL LOL

That Jag (the real one) looks fabulous!!
When I was about 14yrs old I had a Saturday job in a garage, sweeping up and general dogsbody.
The estate agent along the road had one of those and I always longed for an offer of a drive round in it.
Never happened!!

I'm sure your model will look fantastic when finished if your other work is anything to go by. Good luck Roy.
