1/24 Lynx Eventer
« on: April 18, 2018, 01:20:21 am »
With the recent release of the Hasegawa 1/24 Jaguar XJS TVR and older XJS kits demanding high prices the idea for converting such a kit into a Lynx Eventer is appealing.
I would have thought by now that there would be a resin bodyshell available in the popular 1/43 or 1/24 scale but I can only find the die-cast 1/43 model.
On the real car they used a Renault hatchback for the rear door.
 I have searched on the internet to see if anyone has undertaken this conversion, with no results.
 Further research has uncovered a hatchback version although I can't find a company name to relate to the conversion. Some are clearly D.I.Y. whilst others look professional.

I'm working on an Eventer based on the Hasegawa kit at the moment.

The hatchback is a DIY project using a Citroen Xantia donor, by the way.
