A kit that's been on the shelf for fifteen plus years. Fit not great, bonnet especially!

Now how cool is that little bugger !  I really like that interior color with the body color you picked.

So you are saying it is a 100% accurate representation of a MGB

 I remember test driving a new B with almost that same interior color a few decades ago, it's well represented in this model.

Thanks guys, so many interests in a 1/32 scale next to a 1/43 rally barrier!

The smallest vehicle I ever built was a Model T C cab in 1/87.

Yes they tend to get smaller. The latest range from AIRFIX, cars and a pickup style Land Rover I liked the look of but they are all in 1/43rd scale! No good for my shaky hands!
