      I have a new project on my workbench, a Jaguar E-Type Roadster.
      The base is a Revell Jaguar E-Type 1/8 Roadster kit. The rear body part I got from Matthias ( thank you very much).
      Anyway there's still a lot of work left.
      This is how it's supposed to look like when it's finished:


      here's the rear part:


      and this is the actual state of construction :

    Hallo Michael!!
    War klar das die Form ein Profi bauen muss. Aber trotzdem, großes Lob an Matthias, er aht echt gute Arbeit gemacht.
    Da kann man schon von einem Gemeinschaftsprojekt sprechen. Warte noch auf Samtfolie für den Boden, dann werden die Baugruppen zusammengefügt. Was meinst du zur Außenfarbe? Opalescent silver-blue mit hellbrauenen Innenraum oder Gals Außenfarbe gold ?
    Gruß Karsten

    G'day Karsten, mate where did you get that tail piece and what is it made of. When I made my roadster (lightweight) I cut the roof of and set it aside, then I realised that with a 180 turn it was a perfect fit for the boot area. I've added a pic to show what I mean, and good luck with your new build.

    Kind regards Michael.Jaguar E-Type 1/8 Roadster-boot-jpg

    Hallo Karsten,

    man tut was man kann ;]
    Also ich find das Foto echt lecker mit dem schönen Blau, und das funktioniert auch super mit braunem Leder. So auf die Schnelle wüsst ich sowieso nicht welchem Auto ich Gold überhaupt antun würde.

    Hello Karsten,
    watching your OTS XKE coming along with suspence. Just to drop in my 2 cents...Indigo would be fine(Glasurit # JAG-7412A). Was only used on '61-63 Models, later replaced by Dark Blue.
    Combined with a light grey interior...yummy. Got a pic of a FHC:Jaguar E-Type 1/8 Roadster-xke-fhc-indigo-jpg

    Cheers

    Hi Michael,
    i like the dark blue colour, too. But when combined with brown leather.
    What your think about the gold one?
    I have to decice between opalescent silver -blue or gold. What you think about?

    My personal favorite on these cars is silver with red interior but I have to say the the gold/tan combination is quite striking!

    Well Karsten,
    the gold one would be my choice then, facing the fact, that you got the opalescent blue FHC already. One day you gotta have the whole palette of colors in your showroom.

    Here is my choice of color combination. 1962 Roadster restored from a rusted out northern Ohio hulk. There were holes that you could put your leg through in the body and the bonnet was shot. I wanted Black to make sure the body work was perfect. The shop had a few choice words for my selection. Still has the original wiring harness so Lucas got it right at least once.

    The interior is biscuit; the hood is two tone black and biscuit.

    Hi Ken, your cat is beautiful. The combination of colours looks very good, but i want some light colours.
    I Know you are the expert here in the forum, your engine for the cat is brilliant. If it isn't installed anywhere, put it in a box and send it to old germany to me.

    @sJordan: i'm using the original wheels, because unfortunately i've no better ones
