Made one of these during Covid lockdown.

Highly recommended model kit, very well presented instructions and kit includes everything you need to complete although a pair of fine wire cutters are very handy.

Took me about 4 weeks on and off to complete it, would do another one of their kits.

Now that looks fun

I know that I would want to alter the back end to make it a bit more Morgan, so Mr Scrambledsignals or anyone else that has built one, if I have too much time on my hands and tried that would it be;
A) Not possible
B) Possible
C) Wind up being thrown on the floor and stamped on in frustration after trying and sodding it up

I bought one as it's obviously a 4 seater smile

Built it over a weekend, and very pleased with result, although I did lean on the back a little too hard and broke the axle smile It now sits on my Morgan shelf next to my Morgan books and small amount of Morgan tatt.

I built one last year. My recommendation would be not to mess with it and build it for the fun of it - there's enough challenges as it is.

My own attempt was great fun building this Grand Prix Car. Excellent engineering but not without its problems

Dozens of moving parts and lots of gear wheel to drive so sadly I could only get the engine and drive shaft to run but with the rear axle connected - nothing.
