Pretty kitty. I do love the lines of the XK120 and 140. Sleek and sensuous all in one.

Who produced the shell and what have you powered it with?

That is gorgeous. Beautiful paint work. Can you explain how you did it? There is a sheen to it but mot glossy. Do you spray it with any protective coating? What is the tourneau (sp?) cover made of? It is so realistic.

"elbow grease" .
I didn't know this expression was currently used in english


Ok :
the tonneau cover is molded with the body . This short run kit s just a one piece body.
paint : nothing particular but some weathering and a matt varnish . Then the car is polished to obtain the gloss you need.

Terry Thomas - yeah! Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines and other classics...

Beautiful job Olivier, and one of my favorite cars, molded by "The Master"!

Which movie are you referring to? Sounds like something I would like...

About "elbow grease", lots of expressions in French and English are similar in fact, only normal considering how long the countries have been bosom buddies!

Oh yes it is used in English. Just rarely practised in Britain.
