Revell 1/24 E-Type Jaguar (07668)

Recommended Posts

I really love the E type and i have been waiting to set eyes on this kit.... 

but ( yeah, always a but) 

im not being funny or trying to start slagging this off without even seeing the real kit, but the roof seems too low, maybe the shape of the windscreen? what do you guys think?

I looks like an E-type to me! :P 

I really couldn't say tbh Steve, but my impression when I was looking at the Jag in the catalogue  was that the roof was too high! xD
I may have got that impression of a higher roof from the box art
The windscreen looks taller for whatever reason. in the painting 

Maybe I just need new specs and/or stay away from little mushrooms. O.o

Edit 
Yeah the box art in the catalogue has a much higher roof than the (prototype) model

I posted the image elsewhere and a couple of ultra geeks immediately came up with this issue. I've done a little research, on the real cars, the roadster screen is 15½", the coupe 18" across the rake. Go figure.
