Do tell me more, Tom! I made the purchase precisely because I thought the subject matter obscure and interesting.

Obscure indeed, this is the only one I've ever seen. I don't know who did the conversion.

Here is my 'choppped' MC coupe. I am tempted to put wires on as per Tom's pic!

Your Minichamps conversion is breathtaking! Did you undertake the conversion yourself?

I remember seeing this very neat job previously and complimenting David on his skills with a hacksaw. :D

The XJC was converted by Steve Tebenham not me!
He can be contacted via:-

toyfayre@gmail.com

Just mention David Jackson. All you do is supply the model and he gets chopping!
Cheers,

Steve certainly made a first class job of it. Kudos to him!

And here's my latest acquisition, bought s/h - but apparently in mint condition - for what appears a fair price (pending delivery and closer scrutiny):

It sits a little low but otherwise it looks good.

Thanks Tom!

It is, of course, SMTS' interpretation of the XJ-S (or the 'XJS' as they refer to the model)
