Wow! Great work!

The only thing missing is more pictures, please.

Some close ups of the interior and engine bay and the running gear underneath maybe?

Nice Jag! I built a Monogram model recently, and tried to enlarge the hood vents. I managed to destroy them with the scribing tool! When I saw your Jag, I got the inspiration to do the same with the mesh! The old holes are filled and sanded and painted, by I might be able to put in some mesh instead. It just so happens, I bought some today! Also, I scraped and sanded down the chrome strips on the front fenders. They were of varying depth and wiggliness, so it was better without them. I got some styrene 1mm half-rounds, which, once painted with Molotow, I might be able to glue to the (now)painted fenders/quarter panels?
Your model looks really nice, colour too. And I also would like to see closer details of the engine. Thanks so much! Cheers!
