Looks nice, can't see the engine in the parts, but it says all you need are the wheels from a Tamiya Jag Mk2.

Anyway it's news to me, anyone know anything about it?

Lord Brett Sinclair. lol

Yes, it's a resin Transkit made by Airtrax in Finland, I can put you in touch with the guy who runs it, he's been a friend of mine for quite a few years now, not cheap, and they do need a bit of work, but as you see, they make up into a very nice model.

That's pretty much what the link says Geoff!

What's the story with the engine do you know?  The XK engine is similar but far from correct really.

So just rewire it and put the dizzy on the back then.

€100 plus a scarce Tamiya Mk 2 Jag knocks that one on the head then, especially as it needs to be the racing version with triple carbs.

Oh well.

I could probably get it cheaper from Tapani in Finland

It does look a bit rough for that outlay.
