The Jaaaaag. Many of you have already seen this on Flickr, but I figured I'd still stick around on MP too.
About this creation
Posted a bit late, but better late than never. MOCpages is beginning to resemble an old Porsche. Breaking down more often than it works.
The side, with many plates.
The tan shack, with brown trim. A classic look, fits into many areas and adds warmth.
The back. Missing some cannons exhaust pipes, as noted by some folks elsewhere.
The back again! C-c-combo!! !
Enough outdoorsy stuff, it was cold. (Ironically its quite warm now, but these pics are already a week old!)
Much opening goodness.
And again, even that front opens up serenely. Like opening a cushioned caramelly dream.
The engine. POWAAAA!!!!! *turns off Topgear*
And some steering gubbins! Did I mention it has independent double wishbone suspension in front, and live axle in the rear? Snazzy stuffs, too.
Dark tan trunk. Fancy!
Enough room for a whole Ecurie Ecosse transporter, with all the Jags ever!!!
The interior. Time to get edgy!
Gloveboxes! Cast your eyes elsewhere, kiddies, this glovebox is the top-of-the-line glove version. Now with real glove action! More glove than a mere pup can handle! *A kid walks over and puts on the gloves, and nothing happens*.
At least the seats shuffle about. Just forward and backward, no up/down action.
The spine! two spines actually. With a 1st+reverse+parking brake+neutral gearbox in between.
hang on, I don't think that's right. Aerial tomato makes no sense. Must've meant Aerial Ace.
I love the e-type ! You always do great work with real cars. But this time, some proportions are not perfect : First, the hood is a bit too short as TheLegoNoitAll said. The beauty of the e-type comes from his disproportionate nose, so much longer than the cockpit ^^. And second, the tracks / treads are too large. The MK1 e-type has smale tracks compared to its width. The wheels are really hidden under the body : http://www.netcarshow.com/jaguar/1971-e-type/800x600/wallpaper_05.htm

But i know technic wheels are too wide for old cars, and the steering would be difficult with the body hiding so much the front wheels.
Quoting kenneth rattledge
nice looking car, a mixture of old and some new parts, the rear axle could do with a differential though, is the rear shocks mounted straight on the axle too?
Nope, they're quite off. The back wheels move forward about a half stud when you push the suspension down. And a dif, you say? I might actually be able to do something about that... thanks for the idea.
