Nice interior detail, where did you get the dial and steering wheel? I don't recall it from your build up thread!

Glen, surely you've seen those fasteners they use on virtually every British top & tonneau cover. they use a stud fixed to the car body and a metal grommet on the top, and to release the grommet, you "lift the dot" which is stamped on the grommet. fot those who don't get it, LIFT THE DOT is stamped on there as well.

if i can't have little lift-the-dot fasteners, then i'll just leave the top up :P

Matt, the dial and steering wheel were lifted from the 1/8 scale Jag. the chrome rim round the speedo is a 1/25 scale wheel trim ring (you might be able to see the valve-stem relief)

oh, and the shift boot is a CVD boot :banana:

Brilliant modeling, I have a bit of a loving of Minis from currently owning 2(non moke). I've always had a kindof liking to the mokes... they are a bit ironic though, they are awesome to have at the beach, but rust like crazy. Having been around quite a few real mokes however..I can't help but thinking the entire front nose/hood assembly looks too big. Maybe it just doesn't translate well to scale... Or maybe I am just in an excedingly mean mood. Who knows! Either way, brilliant craftsmanship. Wish me luck on my summer project...trying to tackle a Styrene '91 Suburban. My first styrene model. If any of you having any key tips, PM me, I've looked over the tips section..but any is welcome. Sorry for mini-hyjacking the thread. (I love puns :lolbeat: ) -Ted
