The hard top 250 SWB is more for the road / track look rather than the convertible. By all means make a race car replica from a coupe but not the convertible unless you have plans for it ? Would be nice to see this car at Prescott or Shelsey Walsh on or off the track !

Managed to get out to probably the last show of the year for me, Sywell Props and Pistons event. Needless to say the car got a lot of attention.... :-)

You were lucky to get Ringo Starr to pose by it for a photo!

ericholm - Hi Andy, your car looks great.

Although, initially, I thought the font choice for your numbers looked a little odd.

But as I plan to use Barry Sheene's motorcycle #7 on mine, I was hardly going to mention it.

However, while searching through the original SWB 250 thread earlier I spotted this photo and it all made sense.



Are you planning to add a similar stripe too?

Cheers, Paul.

There is something about the artificial light in this photo that makes it look real/old.
( If that makes sense. )

Hearty congrats

I was not happy with being able to see through the wheel arches and out through the front grill and air intake. Also at the rear of the front wheel it sort of looked un-finished.

I had previously 'chopped' the Z3 inner arch parts to shape, however due to the extra width of the from section of the body it left a huge gap. So I ordered some 1.5mm sheet of black plastic ABS and made an inner wheel arch liner.

I'm pretty happy with the result and will now need to do the other side, it took about 2 hours of adjusting, fine tuning, trimming so that the bonnet can open without it scraping touching. But now one side is done I just need to mirror it on the other so should take less time. On the rear there are also some gaps but nowhere near the size of the front so should be much smaller job.

Here are some pictures of todays work........
