Jaguar D Type - Ecurie Ecosse . And the chorus, led by Mr. Ape Fight, yells, 'About time too!' . Classic Race Teams Finally, there's something lurking in my big blue transporter... Said transporter has had plenty of time to gather dust while I procrastinate over how to fill it. Fortunately, Senator Chinchilla helped me out with that a little while ago. Now it's my turn; lets see what we have here... It's a recreation of the 1956 Le Mans winning D-Type, and there are differences between years. This one has no fin and fewer lights than S.C.'s later version. Still the same incredibly difficult shape, though. Buried in each light is a trans. clear headlight brick. Any excuse... One piece bonnet assembly for easy access to that straight six XK engine with it's trio of twin choke carbs. It's made of lots of pieces, actually; small ones... Oh look, it closes too. There's a removable cover for the passenger side and a tiny door for the driver. Everything you need and nothing you don't... A shapely rear, possibly... With a drop-down panel to cover the spare wheel, which isn't there. That technicy underside - this has the full suite of 'Technic Supercar' features, which means suspension (wishbones front, live axle on trailing arms rear), working steering, a reciprocating 6 cylinder engine and a forward/reverse transmission. Surprisingly, it steers well without fouling the arches, due to a pivot point inside the tyres and a limited lock. A second chassis in it's naked glory - This will be displayed at next year's Great Western Lego show and I'll need another car. After a boat load of small blue plates are applied, it'll look like this, although I will do a different variant. With thanks to Ape Fight, for the awesomeness that is Classic Race Teams, and MortalSwordsman and DeTomaso Pantera who will be displaying their teams as well; and anyone else who fancies a go...
