That, you would assume would normally be the end of that. But NO! Closer examination reveals that all three are different from each other. Odd, when one assumes the great Williams and Pritchard, coachbuilders to the world of racing cars for so long would have made a wooden buck over which their four similar bodies will have been checked. Well, if they did, it is not obvious. OK, the general shape of the red, green and even the blue TR based ones are close (leaving out the 4 inches in bonnet length of the latter), but what gives with the natural metal one? Same underpinnings of the other two longer wheelbase cars, but the front wings are sensually raised, the shoulders are softer. How could this one have fitted the buck? OR, was it this one rebuilt elsewhere after a fire? Hmmmm, could be.
Oh well, I like it best, so will make the master this way and concientious kit bashers can file some off the wings and build up some filler on the shoulders. Oh and reshape the bonnet bulge and remove the smaller one. Oh and yes, the windows are all treated differently, being largely Perspex, rivetted in. Getting that effect with vacuum formed plastic on a 1/32nd scale slot care body (requiring as it does a very thin edge to the window aperture inside which the window proper goes) is almost impracticable. The natural metal one has rubber seals. Much easier to represent.
Back to the grindstone.
